    All series talk goes in here. Non series talk goes somewhere else. No PVP that can be found from other sources if you need it. All games are broadcast on Root Sports unless otherwise noted.

    5-2 Jose Berrios, RHP (0-1, 11.25) vs. Dallas Keuchel, LHP (2-3, 4.41) 7:10

    5-3 Alex Meyer, RHP (0-0, 18.00) vs. Collin McHugh, RHP (2-3, 6.65) 7:10

    5-4 Phil Hughes, RHP (1-4, 4.45) vs. Mike Fiers, RHP (2-1, 4.97) 7:10

    Good opportunity for Keuchel and McHugh to get their mojo's back. It would be nice to have the first winning streak of the season as the Twins are not good. There are 0 excuses to not win this series.

    If the Astros are going to turn it around and sweep a series, this is the one to do it. The Astros have a pitching advantage arguably in all the games.

    A sweep would make them 11-17..... not a good spot to be in but a hot spell would probably get them around .500% and really boost the confidence of a team that right now is lacking confidence.

    16 home games this month vs 10 road...which is the opposite of what we had in April (10 home vs 14 road). Very good chance to get back to .500 by the end of the month if they start playing to their potential.

    I'm going to every game this series, hopefully they can turn it around and get this ship back upright.

    interestingly, the toughest game may be today even with Keuchel going. Berrios looks like he's going to have some really good starts this year. Hoping this isn't one of them.

    I expect Berrios to throw well but give up a couple of HRs--Rasmus for 1 of them

    Holy ERA's! No wonder they're 2 of the worst teams in baseball. :p

    Probably 1-2 again. ;):rolleyes:

    Anything that doesn't involve winning two in a row...cause we can't do that for some reason.

    This series maybe the catalyst for whats to come.

    If we win it easily, then drastic roster changes maybe put on hold, temporarily. But if we lose big, I cant imagine the brass doing nothing and would hope and expect some movement soon after.

    Astros still have a great opportunity for success this season, but it won't last forever.

    This is where it all turns around!

    At this point last year, the Rangers were 9-16
