    Not sure where karma was for the 4 seasons they made the ALCS and the World Series they won in that timeline after Luhnow was let go.

    My dad and I went to see him pitch his first start at the Dome. As I recall…and it’s been a minute…it did not go well.

    Astros about to be 9 games back of Seattle.

    The White Sox bullpen yet another blown lead in the 9th.

    Very easily could have been a 4 game sweep of the Mariners.

    8 back --- small victory


    Picsart_24-05-23_14-28-51-512.jpg



    Seattle lost a 1-run game vs the lowly CHI SOX

    What most likely happens the remainder of the season...
    - SEA won't be so lucky
    - Astros will be more lucky

    Abreu's days are numbered -- short number. That's instant advantage for the Astros, and disadvantage Astros' opponents.

    Mariners can add a bat at the deadline, but the Astros will add Garcia and Troy..

    Yordan will finish ~1.000 OPS, Bregs ~770, and Pressly won't be 8th inning if his butt-hurt suckage continues. Espada won't be fired, but upper management will put a leash on him.

    Things look grim right now in the moment -- but time, stats, and history will likely tell a far different story.

    Enjoy the Dynasty.

    This may be a very stupid question that I'm going to look very stupid for asking, but who is Troy?

    Troy Patton... Astros legend. The one late round draft prospect that Drayton splurged for and got him to sign.

    It's a joke from 2015 when I botched Lance's name after his debut.

    I was hoping it had something to do with a massive wooden horse.
