    I take this back. I fully expect the Stros to be up 12-10 in the 9th and Trout wins it with a PH walkoff.

    Last 3 ABs: 1 pitch, 3R HR; 5P single; 2P 2R HR

    And after stopping all the sh!t Framber's been bouncing, Maldonado's 1 bad play costs us a run.

    It would take an 8 run lead to feel safe. Pitching staff is in shambles.

    I can’t watch this series, don’t want to risk a brain aneurysm. The good news is McCullers went to the DL so at least he won’t be getting bombed for the next week and a half.

    this season has been depressing from a number of angles, but Tucker's arrival is really, really nice to see.

    Before you replace your BBQ with a shotgun, the Yankees are in 3rd place, the Rangers are in last place and the Nationals are suffering the worst WS hangover in MLB history. Only the f#cking Dodgers are doing what was expected, and there, just maybe, S.D. can make them worry some.

    If it were the early innings, that wouldn't be safe either.

    Toro and some of the other players on this team having to play so much when they have no business being in the majors is hard to overcome.

    Pitching staff can’t hold leads. Should have traded for bullpen help. Too late now.

    Sure about that?

    edit: Thought that said WE WONT BE....

    No need to worry though, we got lots of guys that can give us what McCullers does o_O

    Oh yeah, it's a weird year and I had no expectations. But if the Stros are playing, I want them to play well. This is a tough stretch. Think about the guys vs last season

    Out: Cole, Verlander, Harris, Smith, Osuna, Alvarez, Chirinos
    DL time: Altuve, Bregman, Brantley, Diaz, Urquidy, James
    Hurt/Slump: Springer, Altuve, McCullers

    I mean, that's basically your WS lineup/rotation/bullpen

    If he wants to get bombed in the near future he needs to stay out of the bars and do it at home.

    Hey kids, that's what a 1-2-3 inning looks like. You may remember 1 (one) from yesterday.

    Now they can’t buy a hit. Almost like they want this over.
