    Talk about the series here. Please no PBP in this thread. Unless otherwise noted all games are on CSN-H (for about 40% I guess).

    6-13 Alex Cobb, RHP vs. Collin McHugh, RHP 7:10 *MLBN

    6-14 Chris Archer, RHP vs. Jarred Cosart, RHP 3:10

    6-15 David Price, LHP vs. Brad Peacock, RHP 1:10

    Tough matchup Sunday, but hopefully the momentum of our 4-game win streak gets us through that one.

    Go Stros

    Chris Archer and his .87 ERA in his past 5 starts is slightly concerning as well. Price gives up hits, it is just whether he pitches out of it.

    Price has an absurd 11.1 K/BB ratio.

    Archer has been awesome. I don't like the Astros in that one. I have never been too fond of Cosart. He is a reliever.

    Rays are a bad ball club.

    They are the best worst team ever.

    The team we were emulating is fixing to be dominated.

    As has been mentioned Tampa is much better than their record would suggest. All of their pitchers have ERA's well above their FIP, and Longoria is having by far the worst year of his career, he's gonna break out eventually.

    Having said that, it isn't as if the Astros have built this winning stretch by beating a bunch of bad teams. No reason we can't win this series as well.

    WLW with a big win against Price. Why not. I think it is going to be a lower scoring series than most would like.

    Talent on talent, but they sure are similar to a Houston team we had last year.

    Read comments by their fans about Astros is pretty hilarious. "We can't lose to these guys right?"
