Is Schafer okay?
Watching the Astros go for the sweep is making the workday pass much quicker
schafer is injury prone...hopefully its not serious.
What happened? I'm just following on gametracker
ah ok, thanks juicy!
watching this team is so much better than watching the team last year.
It's funny I'm saying this because I have not watched a single game yet this season, not even an inning.
at least following them is good.
Schafer seemed to hurt his side a few games ago when running into the fence to make a catch. Every game since then he has been looking to stretch it out. He says he tweaked his side on the bases yesterday. Looks like something that bothers him when he swings.
I guess we can now say 4-8 are raking, as Carlos Lee gets hit #2.

Yeah, official Astros tweet says lower back tightness on his side, and Levine tweets the injury may be related, but not certain.
What was the deal with Tim Byrdak and Carlos Lee?
Came on here looking for the same thing. Byrdak was fuming in the dugout. And as they went to break you could see him hollering across the field and being held back.
My dear, can reporters EVER ask a question?
"... that just made it a four-o-clock conclusion..." [points microphone at Johnson]
"That's not good!" [points microphone at Johnson]
You are a bad reporter, Lucas. At least Patti Smith asks the people in the stands questions... sheesh.
Anyway, great sweep, Astros. W2G.
Byrdak "quick pitched" Bogusevic when he had a 1-2 count on him. It was an odd looking pitch as he didn't complete his windup. The announcers didn't say anything about it, but it wouldn't surprise me if Lee (or others in the dugout) took exception to it.
Looks like my assumption was correct:
zacharylevine Sounds like the Byrdak vs. Astros dugout flap was about an alleged quick pitch. Both Mills and Carlos Lee downplayed.

2nd series win?
Great sweep for the 'stros. Now we just need to keep the bats hot
Here is a video of the quick pitch:
