    Outro a la pdiddy:
    You say baseball is boring but can't keep your mouth shut when it comes to the Stros
    They weren't punished enough, ban them for life take away the trophy, this and that.

    Hypocrites, defending teams who were doing the same thing, signing Betts conveniently forgetting. i-watch 24 straight curveballs pass by and they still can't swing that bat.

    . You can hate me noooow but I won't stop now.

    (needs a ghostwriter)

    Its nuts. For all our guys. Their all still young. It makes a huge difference IMO. Im sure hes nervous but not as nervous as Snell probably was last night. Theres a certain calm that repetition gives a person that has been placed in certain situations after situations. Lance is the right guy for the job, I just wished it was anybody else for the Rays instead of Charlie.

    Bregman wakes up this game - he’s been making great contact, just hasn’t found the holes. Yet.

    I will love the legend CFM every single day of my life except days when he pitches against the Astros. It's nothing personal today. Now let's go out there and light him up like a Christmas tree and send the Rays home.

    Interesting to note that LMJ used his cutter extremely sparingly (1.8%) in the regular season but it was very effective when used (.110 xwOBA). In the playoffs he has ramped up his cutter usage to 10% and it's been a very effective pitch for him (.232 xwOBA). This pitch could really add an extra dimension to his game if he can successfully ramp it up even more in his pitch mix.

    While Astros have gotten more calls their way this series from the umps, Altuve has gotten hosed out of at least 3 walks by the umps that turned into outs.

    Sometimes "momentum" is debated whether its truly real or not, or if so, how much influence it has. One thing I am sure of, whatever it is, we got all of it and TB has none of it.

    We are 27 outs away from another WS appearance. Man, what a mind job :D

    All hands on deck today. Who would have ever thought we'd be in this position without Verlander and Cole. Nuts.

    it's funny that Correa was saying the opposite of what the announcer thought he was

    Y’all think Lance has it in him today? Facing his hometown team for a game 7. More motivation I hope ....

    wish Charlie wasn’t pitching but hopefully this jinx him to have his worst game ever.
