    Raley over Taylor is disgusting decision making.

    The offense being asleep today hasn't helped. Margin of error has been slim and Javier's free passes didn't help.

    He had changed up his approach against that last batter and got him out. I was fine with ridding him for one more batter.

    Astros are #1 in runs scored in the 8th and 9th innings. Finally getting at bats in those innings for the first time since Thursday.

    Skubal entered today with an ERA above 4.00. Mize was near 4.00 before yesterday with a 4.50 in June.

    Dude gets called up yesterday and hits his first career HR which untied a game late and was the game-winner.

    Tigers are on witchcraft shenanigans vs the Astros.

    Thankfully there's still legitimate chance to win this series.

    I hope Javi keeps a strong head. He is known to settle in late.

    I was just thinking 1 hit was unacceptable and they finally get a hit, only for Altuve to hit dp lol. Get another hit, hr, preferred.

    I would prefer someone who isn’t Raley here. I’m not picky

    or, and here me out, we could start with Raley so he digs a hole and starts the notoriously shaky Stanek in the stretch

    I know its a different sport, but Don Nelson was a big reason why GSW upset DAL back in 2007

    Former Rocket Eddie Johnson predicted Warriors for similar reason before the series began.

    One of the few times MVP was awarded after being eliminated
