    Javier was due for a bad inning. The offense needs to pick him up here. Best 4-5-6 hitters in baseball!

    Leadoff doubles are fun.

    @Joe Joe : Tucker did a good job jogging all the way to the wall on the HR that was 100 feet over his head. Good hustle!

    eta: stranding leadoff doubles is no fun at all

    TB not playing the shift may save the Astros.

    Tucker's baserunning and slide saved that run. Yordan was totally lollygagging it to home.

    ...and they popularized the damn thing

    As bad as Maldy is swinging the bat he has to snag that throw and tag the runner out at home.

    Abreu has good stuff but he's still to wild to be trusted too much

    Yeah, throwing high home in that situation.

    That was an oh no, oh yes, oh no. Looked terrible off the bat, but then Yuli fielded it cleanly... even an average throw gets him easily. Instead, he fires a fastball above his head from 50 feet away.

    I sometimes wish Brantley batted leadoff so teams couldn't double up with a LHP against him and Alvarez.
