    I'm not even close to calling this series. All we have to do is take 1 in Boston to get us back to Houston for the final 2 games and that I guarantee we will do.

    Also, we all knew Urquidy and Garcia were most likely going to get shelled based on experience and recent outings. I am 100% positive Greinke and Javier show something and Framber wins his next game as well. The luxury we have in Game #3 is the same we had in Game #2. Battle back but don't throw the sink just yet. We may not win this series but we will take it to a Game #7 without Verlander, Cole or McCullers.

    Wouldn’t be surprised if they were set down in order the next few innings.

    Typical cowardice. Should've kept Jeff and pretended the whole thing never happened.

    Once you're forced to fire your GM because the league said so, you're entire organization becomes b****-made from top to bottom. Look at the 76ers to see how it worked for them.

    Yeah, I don't think so, the Astros were pressured to 'punish' someone and so they made scapegoats out of Hinch and Lunhow since they couldn't do anything to the players.

    There are 7 innings left...so game is not over if we could have some lock down pitching....that's the problem.

    At this point , things that go against the shift ... I’m not sure it’s bad luck anymore . I think teams are adjusting

    Luis Garcia needs to go to playoff IL so they can bring in a fresh arm tomorrow.

    I wouldn’t say they’re pure ****, just not the aces you need for the playoffs

    Yeah maybe Castro needs to start a game. It’s not like Maldonado is hitting.

    No more no hitter. Hopefully this starts a rally but ugh if only that double play could have been turned.

    I can honestly see Altuve eventually being a DH. IDK why but I do.

    Who cares what other fans think? They can cry and complain all they want, but they can’t say anything that takes away from the fun we had celebrating those 1994/1995 championships, when it was like Mardi Gras on Richmond/Westheimer. They also can’t take away from the high we felt in 2017 after the Astros won

    I feel like our pitchers just can't hang. But, still have to play the game and rest of the series. Anything could happen.

    Jeez. This really is like 2018 all over again. What in the hell is Alex Cora feeding this team that they can't do wrong against us?! And the thing that really makes you mad is our starters aren't even giving the offense a chance. 8-0 and 6-0?! How does that happen in playoff games??

    It really makes you appreciate all the more Keuchel, Verlander, McCullers, Morton and Cole, Verlander, Greinke. I would take half of one of those guys right about now. I long for the days we could ride a starter to the 7th and close the door with the bullpen.

    Come on man, I like this forum and I have a lot of respect for the Astros. But your pitcher is giving you guys zero chance tonight. He is just throwing some absolutely horrible pitches. I don’t Think Cora is stupid enough to try and cheat again so fast. But I guess you never know. To me it’s just a team that is red hot right now and hitting on all cylinders. Then again I’m a Sox fan so obviously I’m biased.
