    All series talk goes in here. Non series talk goes somewhere else. No PVP that can be found from other sources if you need it. All games are broadcast on Root Sports unless otherwise noted.

    6-24 Dallas Keuchel, LHP vs. Edinson Volquez, RHP 7:15

    6-25 Mike Fiers, RHP vs. Chris Young, RHP 6:15 FOX only

    6-26 Doug Fister, RHP vs. Ian Kennedy, RHP 1:15

    I think we have a shot to win all three, but I'll go WLW. While Fiers has had two good starts in a row and Young is someone we do fairly well against, I just don't trust Fiers. Kennedy shut us down in that first series, but his ERA has consistently gone up over the past few months. I think Houston exacts some revenge against him this time around.

    i think WWW is definitely possible.

    Need Keuchel to avoid the HR. Kendrys and Sal Perez have been a little hot lately. Work around Kendrys if necessary

    Thankfully we're not going against that punk Ventura.

    The Astros have a special assistant who knows a thing or two about dealing with punks named Ventura.

    Unfortunately, and not surprisingly, all 3 of their starters pitch great at Kaufman.

    Edinson and Ian sound like inventors, not pitchers. Sweep for the Astros.

    Volquez is as much of a punk, IMO. He's the one who beaned Springer and broke his wrist last year (or pitched him too far inside, depending on how you view his intent).

    Hate Gattis being in there against RHPs. What does Kemp have to do to get consistent starts against RHPs (even if he is the DH)?
