    Where did this Trivino asshole come from? Holy crap, that guy can bring it.

    Don't think I've ever seen him before. Reddick did get totally jobbed on that 3rd strike though.

    "Video killed the neighborhood call". Borrowed that one from a buddy of mine, if you remember the 80's.

    And no, Altuve has not graced us with one of his better games tonight.

    The A's are scrappy. The AL West is a pretty good division this year.

    Big spot for Smith.. I think he'll close it *without OAK scoring.

    Stros bats will rally.

    Eta- *damn. Still a chance though.

    Dammit Harris, throw strikes. I tried to talk nice about you earlier.

    Altuve that’s how you hit when men are in scoring position.

    The Astros have 2.5 relievers I trust - McHugh, Devo and for the most part Rondon. We need to add at least one more lock down guy.

    1) ND, 7 IP, 0 ER
    2) ND, 7 IP, 2 ER
    3) L, 7 IP, 2 ER
    4) ND, 6.2 IP, 3 ER
    5) ND, 5 IP, 3 ER
    6) ND, 7 IP, 3 ER
    7) L, 6 IP, 1 ER (3 R)
    8) ND, 6 IP, 0 ER (tonight, 2018-07-09)

    I didn't include any starts where Cole had over 4 or more ER. He had two with 4 ER.

    I'll take out the starts with 3 ER and tag the other five as wins he should have had. That matches my guess. Interpret the data how you will; I just thought I'd put it out there.

    The bottom three in the lineup are garbage. Get a bat in this lineup that can hit like Yuli

    A's bullpen is lock down. Wow. Trivino is impressive and Treinen obviously brings it.

    Harris better not pitch tomorrow unless the Stros have a ten run lead.

    Both Peacock and Harris had guys down to 2 strikes and could not finish them off. That annoys me.
