    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.

    9-14 Robbie Ray (L) vs. Dallas Keuchel (L) 7:10

    9-15 Zack Godley (R) vs. Charlie Morton (R) 6:10

    9-16 Zack Greinke (R) vs. Justin Verlander (R) 1:10 TBS (out-of-market only)

    These guys (AZ) are in must win now mode. We need to take care of business.

    Robbie Ray gives up a lot of walks (56BB/103IP) and strikes out guys (136SO/103IP). We need to be patient at the plate. Bregman should be on base at least three times tonight :)

    Like the way the pitching matchups lined up, should favor the Astros.

    Tough series, but I have faith the Astros show well.

    Hope we get these and add to the breathing room we currently have with the A’s seeing as they are in a tough series as well.

    Greinke versus Verlander should really be a Sunday night nationally televised game. Surprised it's just another Sunday afternoon game. Pitching matchups of two future HOFers don't come along very often.

    Sunday Night Baseball schedule is determined long before the season starts. No one knows who's going to be pitching at the time.

    Next Sunday is a TBD and the next week, albeit on Saturday, is also a TBD.

    TBS is doing the broadcast, so it will be available to most homes/bars in America. Primetime would be better, but the current status does have extra oomph.

    Saw Keuchel at Carrabas on Kirby at lunch today. He drives a silver G-Wagon with black rims apparently. His parents were with him (I think).

    2.86 ERA over the last 3 months, and he's been "decent".

    The expectations of pitchers among some Astros fans is all f**ked up right now.

    I think it’s more a testament to the type of fans that have joined the bandwagon
