    I've been out of town this week. Did the Astros call anyone up?

    Don't think there have been any official announcements, but Brady Rodgers was pulled from a start so he's probably on his way up.

    Other than him, I think few other guys we have already seen will be back up.

    Someone get me the low down on Rodgers. Is he any good? His careers stats look underwhelming leading up to this year, where he looks fantastic. What changed this year? Is it sustainable? Also, is his middle name Manning?

    Will you still feel that way after the games have been played? We will see.

    Based on past, recent results, I'm not expecting much. To win the series would be a minor miracle in my book. To sweep the series would be like winning the lottery. To win one game would be like winning a scratch-off.

    Thought Luhnow said last week that Rodgers wouldn't be coming up. Is he on the 40 man roster?

    Gregerson taught Rodgers his slider.

    Astros were one decision away from winning the last series., avoid putting sipp at any cost.
    And it's not the same line up, Alex has been clutch driving in runs. El Yuli is looking like the professional hitter and Oso blanco has woken up from hibernation, making him just as deadly as lucroy. If rasmus and Hernandez can provide good at bats, this series is a win.

    Love the optimism. If Rasmus can turn it on that will be huge. I have faith he can do well down the stretch and put his ear issues behind him. That was obviously bothering him. With last year's Rasmus in our lineup we will look a lot better from top to bottom.

    I have a feeling. I'm calling a sweep for the Stros this series.

    Keuchel goes CGSO tomorrow.
