    As always, no PBP in the thread. If you need that try one of the game cast sites. Keep discussion to this series. If it is not about this series it goes somewhere else.

    8-3 Armando Galarraga, RHP vs. Tim Hudson, RHP 6:35 on FSH

    8-4 Lucas Harrell, RHP vs. Paul Maholm, LHP 6:10 on FSH

    8-5 Bud Norris, RHP vs. Kris Medlen, RHP 12:35 on FSH

    Considering that they're still on the road, can we pencil in "getting swept?"

    I've always been into torture.

    @zacharylevine: Astros have called up reliever Mickey Storey from AAA for MLB debut. Corresponding move to come pregame.

    I believe these games are Houston's last against Atlanta as an NL team. Also the last time Chipper will face Houston.

    Elias should get on that: most players hitting 3rd in the lineup in a single season.

    Galarraga obviously isnt going deep into this game. Anyone care to guess how many relievers Brad will use tonight?

    4? 5?

    Am I the only one who thinks Schafer is highly unlikeable?

    No. I legitimately don't like him. Like, at all. I understand that he's frustrated, but at the same time, I find it pretty funny that he's the one saying this.

    Maybe he should try hitting the ball. I hear that helps win games.

    Seriously, since we REALLY started to suck, he's hitting .165. Dude has some balls to make a comment like that with the way he's been playing. You know your team sucks when Jordan Schafer is an every day player.

    He was walking some early in the year and we didn't notice all the strikeouts but if you are a singles hitter striking out 100 times a year you ****ing suck.

    Nope. Along with Brett Myers and Mitch Meluskey, he's the most unlikeable astro I can recall.
