    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.

    4-20 Luis Garcia (R) vs. Jon Gray (R) 7:40

    4-21 Jose Urquidy (R) vs. Austin Gomber (L) 2:10 ATT SportsNet-SW+

    It’s gonna be a really really cold series. Will be in the upper 30’s tonight and then mid 30’s with a chance of snow during tomorrow afternoon’s game.

    So is Urquidy the best healthy Astros pitcher?

    How about an outfield of Alvarez in left, Straw in CF, and Brantley in a mostly unfamiliar right field. Plus/Minus on runs given up on their defense versus runs provided by the trio on offense?

    You can;t Cook and Click at the same time without watching Rachel Ray, and her house burned down.

    While I won’t ever completely rule out Alvarez playing the field (especially in the World Series), they’re not going to throw him out there a.) in April just removed from bilateral knee surgeries, b.) in Coors field, the biggest OF in all of baseball and c.) coming off a COVID protocol absence that nobody really knows the extent of what was involved since MLB keeps this stuff unnecessarily tight-lipped.

    He will get to PH. Probably in a key spot.

    I’d prefer to see Carlitos in the lead off spot, especially in Colorado. Get Straw out of there, Dusty!
