    That is how fly balls should be.

    Maldy should be PH for to start the inning. He’s done enough tonight.

    Just checked and I guess it really is 18...

    As they just mentioned at some point it HAS to cool off, even if it is next series, it just has to...or else something else has to be going on here.

    I'm not at all mad about Altuve's errors, well at least the first. That was a high bounce and he's not very tall. What could he do?

    It starts and ends with the starting pitching. They have completely sucked the life out of this team from the get-go. To be down by almost double digits after the second is absolutely deflating.

    They need to change things up in a major way. Work backwards or something and start the game with Presley, Graveman, and Stanek. I'm at this point, what have you got to lose? But seriously, think outside your box and try something different.

    Unless it's a 5 run homer it's not going to make up for his choke job in the 2nd.

    Dusty acknowledging the games over. Either that or he’s asleep.

    So now the ump feels so bad when Maldy's at the plate that he calls everything a strike to get him back on the bench faster

    I don't think they were horrible calls, but the Astros pitchers have not been getting close ones.
