    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 AT&T Sports SW unless otherwise noted.

    7-25 Jake Odorizzi (R) vs. Adam Oller (R) 8:40

    7-26 Luis Garcia (R) vs Frankie Montas (R) 8:40

    7-27 Cristian Javier (R) vs. Cole Irvin (R) 2:37

    Garcia and Javier may flip flop days. Baker hasn't finalized the rotation yet.

    First.

    Also, let’s try NOT playing down to our opponent for once…

    They took 2 of 3 last time. We should not play with the entire bench on the field at the same time this time.

    We need the balanced lineup since we'll probably knock the starter out early. Dust loves our balanced lineup. Just remember the Lefty and Righty specialized lineups when we face a pitcher likely to go deep.

    McCormick and Maldy should start every game against lefties and Diaz and Lee starts against Rightys when they do start.

    Let's get some revenge against these fools. At least 2 out of 3. Remember, with Christ, anything is possible.

    The Astros are 5-2 against KC, 6-3 against Oakland, 4-0 vs Detroit and 8-3 against Texas.

    Because we play so well against good teams fans have this stupid ass perception that we're never supposed to lose to bad teams. This isn't the NBA, you are gonna lose some even to the worst teams.

    What does "for once" even mean? You just wrote that Houston always plays down to their opposition's level. That is a demonstrably false and ridiculous statement.

    vs teams <.500

    NYY .762 (32-10)
    LAD .740 (37-13)
    Hou .692 (36-16)
    NYM .698 (30-13)
    ATL .667 (36-18)

    Stros are basically in line with the other overall .600 W-L% teams.

    OH yeah Mr. Smart guy? If you extrapolate all that out to a 162 game season that would only be 120 wins for the Astros. Everyone knows that won't cut it and isn't good enough.

    To rub it in Seattle one more time:

    Before their 14 game winning streak, they sat 13.5 games behind Houston.

    After the sweep to make them 14-3, they sit 13 games behind Houston.
