    Thought the same thing. Rizzo was way off the bag.

    If the Yankees don't win tonight, the Astros will win this series.

    Sweet, so you've guaranteed a series win. But I wouldn't put it past MLB to give the Yankees a win on a night they aren't playing.

    Could they have challenged the balk no call?

    Nope. I wish when the pitching team challenges a pickoff, that the replay ump would review for a balk as well. If a balk happened or it is not conclusive that one didn't happen, don't award the base, but let the play stand.

    Yes, provided the fix is not in, the Astros will win this series.

    Yes the Yankees own the Twins are literally a subject of great fear among Twins fans and MN Sports talk. When the Twins are doing well one of the frequent refrains is, "They'll just get swept by the Yankees in the playoffs."

    This is one reason why I tell all of my Twins fans friends they should be rooting for the Stros.

    Wait so Yankees are b****ing about the roof being open when MLB mandated it?

    Are they also claiming fan interference on the Tucker catch?

    A lot of Stros fans were complaining about how the roof being open would make it hard for the Stros to win and that the league ordered the roof opened to make it harder on the Stros.

    I said if we can't win a game on our home field with the roof open we have no chance in NYC. Just shows this team can win. Roof closed. Roof open. No Roof!

    If the Stros win in NYC are the Yankees fans going to claim that it was rigged because Yankee stadium doesn't have a roof?

    Saturday looks solid, but Sunday and Monday look like rain is possible. There are NO DAYS OFF left to reschedule.

    He caught a great game, got a bloop, a walk and wore one on his forearm. The dude straight up went to first base like... I ain't coming out!

    what a great friday morning to wake up to. I have no idea why people care so much about what NY folks are crying about. they're down 2-0. yankee losers will act like losers. they're getting owned at the plate by 2 elite cy young pitchers. look at your batting lineup, half of it literally sucks. and if judge/stanton aren't hitting the hr ball you get what you see
