    All series talk goes in here. Non series talk goes somewhere else. No PBP, that can be found from other sources if you need it. All games are broadcast on AT&T Sports SW unless otherwise noted.


    9-13 Gerrit Cole (R) vs. Danny Duffy (L) 7:15

    9-14 Zack Greinke (R) vs. Mike Montgomery (L) 6:15

    9-15 Wade Miley (L) vs. Jakob Junis (R) 1:15

    Tough finish to the Oakland series, but it's all downhill from here. Nothing but bad teams and 3 games with the mediocre group from southern Oklahoma.

    Still think we're gonna get to 105. Hopefully the Yankees drop a few.

    I feel a bit let down. The Astros sudden power shortage is concerning.

    They hit 7 home runs in their 3 game losing streak.

    Doesn't seem reassuring to me if we need bottom dwellers to start winning again. The playoffs will not feature such teams.

    Just win. Doesn't need to be extreme. Score runs in multiple innings and start early. Give me nine 1-run innings over one 9-run inning every single day of the week.

    Altuve to the fountain !!

    Jose passes Kent for most HRs by a 2B in franchise history.

    I just now turned it on and was just hoping we weren’t down 7-0 even knowing Cole was on the bump

    Springer was doing so well when he was hitting to all fields now he seems to be back to trying to yank everything out.

    Springer swings the bat like he's trying to break his back. Trying to do too much.

    Back to small ball fundamentals and take advantage of mistakes. That’s how Oakland has been sobsuccessful

    I guess if it’s 3-0 and he wants to see how far he can hit it but I’m so freaking tired of watching these lob. Shorten it up and drive in some damn runs already!

    Spring sprung on that one.

    Runner assumed ball was passed him easily.

    DP the hardest way !!

    How the hell does this Duffy character have a bloated 4+ ERA? He's hitting all his spots on the corner. His stuff looks good.

    Pathetic offense thus far.

    Something could be brewing here with Bregs leadoff hit ....
