    Starters are allowed 1 or 2. But relievers have to be perfect :)

    Does anyone know which uniform they'll wear for Games 1 and 2? I'm assuming the orange ones, but would like to confirm. Usually, it'd be white tops on Thursday with the orange ones on Friday.

    I'm hoping experience wins out in Verlander vs Sale. Sale has not pitched in post season has he?

    Really don't like seeing Gregerson on the roster, especially over McHugh.

    If Gregerson is pitching... its likely in a blowout... (which could go either way).

    Do they DH Gattis today against Sale? Gonzalez in left? Maybin in CF? Reddick not starting?

    I just hope our guys strike early and hard. I dont want to go into the latter innings behind.

    Which is probably the same that could be said of McHugh. Neither of those guys should be expected to contribute much if things are going well and at least Gregerson is a regular bullpen guy. McHugh would probably be the Red Sox game 3 starter, he’s just caught in a numbers game here.

    My body is ready.

    I got this worked out. I'm leaving the office at 2:45. My wife (who's at home today) already went to the store and stocked the fridge and pantry for the weekend. I left her my favorite queso "recipe" and told her to have it ready by 3, when I should walk through our front door. There's 12 ice-cold Modelo's in the fridge. I have a double pack of tobacco free blunt skins and plenty of [REDACTED].

    Verlander vs. Sale.
    Astros vs. Sox.

    Playoff baseball in Houston, TX... there are few things in the world I enjoy more.

    GO ASTROS!!

    FWIW, Reddick is 3-14 against Sale, while Maybin is 2-14.
