    Ya'll need to stop talking about sweeping this team and get your head's out of the clouds. What you need to be thinking about is trying at all cost to win tonight, which is going to be extremely difficult.

    The Indians aren't going to let you sweep them without a fight.

    Never see your team win a championship. Not because they didn't win, but because of self-imposed voodoo.

    in his last start the ump got stingy with the strike zone, forcing fister to make pitches he is not comfortable with. I expect fister to bring it tonight. altuve needs to wake up out of his slump.

    Could you say that Correa is under performing? I expected more.
    As many as 10 rookies on the team before Sept 1 roster expansion

    Well, I hope he isn't hurt...but if he isn't, would sure be interesting to get an explanation as to why we would sit him now....it's kind of crunch time

    It says right there on his calendar that he made out in March, Correa off on Sept 7. Why you want to question Genius?

    Correa has left shoulder inflammation. Sent back to Houston to see team doctors. Hinch hopes to have him back this weekend.

    Stros are dinged up.

    Altuve needs to step up.

    Good happenings so far. Orioles already lost, White Sox just took the lead on the Tigers with 2 runs in the 8th. This could be a really good day, conversely we might not lose ground if we **** the bed tonight.

    But you do control your expectations, right?
