    4-25 Dallas Keuchel LHP vs. Josh Tomlin RHP 5:10

    4-26 Lance McCullers Jr. RHP vs. Trevor Bauer RHP 5:10

    4-27 Mike Fiers RHP vs. Corey Kluber RHP 5:10 MLBN

    That is about as lopsided as 3 matchups could possibly be.

    If Springer isn't ready to go, I'd think Jake goes on the 7-day. Team can't afford to be down 2 position players, especially when they are your only 2 real CF options.

    Just no more umpire shenanigans. Last season's killed a lot of momentum.

    3 games all starting at 5. I guess people out west are used to this, but that's awful early for me.

    Wasn't that the foul ball that was deemed a wild pitch which lead to two runs scoring?

    Kaplan just said Teoscar would be called up if Jake has to go on the 7 day. Think that would be the right decision.

    Yup, that's the one. The umps messed up royally on that, but I was also extremely upset with Jason Castro. Instead of running after the ball he stood there and argued with the ump while two runs came home. I kind of had it with his "strike out and whine" routine by that point so I was extra annoyed at his unalertness.

    Why are they starting early? Does Cleveland start all games at 6:10 local time?

    yeah, just pain in the butt typically. Which means 3 pm is just untenable.. dammit

    Also, I've been right on all but 1 series in # of W's and L's, but am taking a risk here: WWW. I think we get to Kluber just enough, and hopefully Devo is ready to come in behind Fiers. I might even consider using Feliz over Devo in the first 2 games thining ahead

    I heard they do this in April because of the colder weather but how much warmer is the game temperature going to be at 6pm vs. 7pm. Just makes it harder for fans to get to the stadium at 6pm who are coming from work.

    Not all, but pretty common for them apparently. They started doing it 2 years ago.

    Official stance was for weather and families to get home earlier.

    M-Th home games start at 6 local time (except travel days/holidays/nat tv). Fri/Sat/Sun at 7/4/1. They change the weekday starts in June to 7 due to weather and school being out.

    Something has changed in me. I think we have a chance against the better teams. I'm optimistic about this Astros team. What's happening to me?!

    I'm surprised Hoyt isn't riding the shuttle so Teo or Aplin can come up to cover.
