    Stro Poll: Billy for sure. Other than Sipp, Smith, and Pressly, can't say I completely trust anyone in the pen. Can never have enough bullpen depth, especially in this era.

    Monotonous is a great way to put it.

    They sound like they're calling the game in a library.

    Don't know the question, but Bill Spiers is the answer.

    You pull Framber? Or do you leave him in to Framberlat'em some more after 50 pitches?

    I do not know. Whatever Hinch does I guess will be wrong.

    Correa feels like an auto-out these days. Not sure how much to attribute to his back problems. He was not setting the world on fire before those concerns arose.

    0-2 count... who cares?.. Hit a HR anyway.

    -Kemp

    Astros are re-discovering their deadly 2-strike ability of '17.

    May as well move White to the 9 spot, the more he hits the further down the lineup. Why is MarGo batting cleanup and White 7?

    Speaking of Everett, tonight would be a good night for him to be our "Name That Astro" since he's a former Tiger (they usually like to use guys who have at least some connection to the opposing team)

    Possible clues:
    Gold medal
    Traded for a brother from another mother
    "They're not gonna be able to turn two"

    Honestly he should have shared the 2005 NLCS MVP honors with Oswalt, for his irreplaceable defense and outstanding (by his standards) hitting. No mean to disrespect Oswalt, but if we don't turn the DP to end Game 4, we may have lost the series.

    Edit: Also, not to keep talking about the past, but I wonder why Garner gave Lidge the 2-inning save in Game 2 of the NLDS. Maybe it made not difference, but I think it played a role in him fatiguing in Games 4 and 5. Just wondering, what if?

    Damn, that ball jumped right over Correa's head.

    That was a terrible break for Valdez. A strange jump indeed. It was like the ball really did NOT want to be in Correa's glove.

    Geeeeeez, either pull him now or take him out after this inning. He throws way too many out of the zone.

    SMH... the error hurt, but too many baserunners

    Still have the lead though... and the stats should be all unearned runs.
