    All series talk goes in here. Non series talk goes somewhere else. No PBP that can be found from other sources if you need it. All games are broadcast on Root Sports unless otherwise noted.


    9-19 Brad Peacock, RHP vs. Jharel Cotton, RHP 9:05

    9-20 Joe Musgrove, RHP vs. Sean Manaea, LHP 9:05

    9-21 Collin McHugh, RHP vs. TBA 2:35

    It's probably down to this

    4 series left, gonna have to sweep at least one of them and win the other 3

    Anything less than that isn't going to get it done

    We have to win 3 more games than Toronto, and two more than Detroit and Seattle. We'll probably need 11 wins out of 13 games left. Probably ain't going to happen, but at least the Astros kept it interesting.

    Yeah I don't see how anything less than 11 wins gets it done. Not impossible but unlikely.

    Altuve is set to make notorious history if he loses the batting title. He's also only walked once the last 14 games... and that was IBB, IIRC.

    Good to see Correa get a hit... maybe he'll homer again before the season ends. That'll make a pair the final ~2 months. Bout a once/month pace.

    We can't have nearly half the rotation injured, key hitters injured, AND the Big-3 f*** up.

    Why not? Prior to tonight, he has faced the minimum number of hitters in his last 2 games. 3.2 innings, 11 batters.

    Score you 22 Jump Street dumpster diving Astros! The season is on the line! C'mon!

    Bluejays have a no hitter in the works.

    Yeah those were both blowouts.

    I guess he's our best possible option in any situation by your measure.
