    All lefties....hope this series isn't ugly. What a great matchup tonight though. Probably worth walking up and getting some seats.

    Sucks that Rodon made it to the majors before Appel while being younger and being drafted a year later (or two if you count the first time Appel was drafted by the Pirates). Hope he doesn't prove to be a big miss on our part. People were so hot to trot for him before the overuse arguments started to take hold. Appel really needs to start putting it together!!

    Go 'stros!!

    Aside from Valbuena and Castro facing lefties really isn't a problem. Tucker has hit lefties even better than righties throughout his career, so he should probably start for Rasmus.

    Altuve has absolutely destroyed lefties over his career. I never noticed until today, but his splits are pretty extreme. .881 career OPS against lefties, and he has and OPS over 1.000 the last 2 seasons. Good series to snap out of his slump.

    3 lefties, that means we are probably looking at Villar playing the 3 games.

    Also, I would like to see Conger catch 2 of the 3.

    Finally, if we win the first one, we are going to sweep this series.

    Lags slightly behind "hitting coach" and ahead of "pitching coach" as the biggest bullsh!t complaints by fans.
