    Be interesting to see if we rise to the occasion in taking on another division contender or revert to our road woe psychology.

    So the Jays helped yall out with the sweep of the Angels. It would be nice if you could return the favor vs the Yanks. Thanks :cool:

    Need to take care of business on the road. If we don't, we have some of our fate in the Jays hands. If they don't continue their hot ways...

    Lets win our 1st road series (of 3 or more games) since April. Can't beleive it's been that long and yet the Astros have a 4 game lead in the division.

    because I care for the yankees, I think they should give chris young 2 days off to finish off the season strong.

    Away from Minute Maid, he's been his usual mediocre self against the Stros.

    Eovaldi has a whip of 1.45 and gives up a ton of hits which bodes well for the Astros since so many of our hits leave the yard. 'Stros are due for a high scoring game. Let's crush them in this first one. Then we send out our aces.

    Neither Kazmir nor McCullers is pitching. That leaves just one ace.

    Not sure why the bats seemingly die on the road, but that can't happen here. For a lot of reasons, we HAVE to win this series.

    Lol. Ok. Since Mchugh in '14 and '15 so far has a combined 3.35 ERA and a 1.18 whip and has won 13 games already this year, i'm going to go ahead and call him one of our aces. It is nice having 4 aces!

    Not trying to count our eggs before they hatch but...

    We really need NYY to win the east. If NYY takes the east, and assuming TOR wins the WC card game (which they should because they look scary good), TOR faces KC in R1. If TOR wins the east, we face them.

    I want to avoid TOR at ALL costs.
