    Wish I could.
    Wish I could still work at home and not have to go to meetings in person

    Ah makes sense. We're back in the office too but I still have over a month of vacation time left so this was easy. Didn't do any family trips this year because of Covid so it works out and can still take December off for the Holidays

    The rain messed up my day off. We got "Columbus Day" so I planned on watching the game. But now...back in the office and will be watching on my tiny phone screen. And I'm still going to love every bit of it. #prayingforgoodlance

    Really hoping Altuve and Yuli heat up today.

    Also when’s the last time we had an Astros player who was basically an automatic out at the plate like Maldonado?

    It's completely inexcusable that Verlander isn't in the dugout rooting the team on. You're making a boat load of money and havnt thrown a pitch yet you can't support the team on the field. Give me a fkin break. Some of you Verlander fanboys need to get your head checked. Verlander experience could be massive for our young pitching staff and for Lance especially.

    One thing in life there's no excuse for is lack of effort.

    Chris Carter. Jon Singleton. Matt Dominguez. Jonathan Villar. LJ Hoes. The entire 2014 roster except Altuve, Marwin, and George.

    I've been chewing my nails long before Altuve has been alive.

    We're going to have an idea of how this game is going to go once Rodon has thrown his first pitch. If it's 90mph then we know he's coming in for an inning or two followed by Lynn. If it's 94-96 mph then we know we likely have a battle on our hands and will need LMJ to likely pitch the game of his life.

    I'm a teetotaler, but I do have the corn dogs and fries on.

    There are two bottles of something in the mini-fridge, but I don't remember how they got there.

    Just a second. I'll get the bottles and maybe one of you alcoholics can tell me if their supposed to be anything good.

    Bottle one - Korbel Brut California Champaigne.

    Bottle two - SYN Cabernet Sauvignon - 2010 - Central Valley - Chili
