    Not even going to bother with a series prediction. Win a ****ing game for once at least.

    But, we're still at home where we're not at home.

    No game prediction here either. But if we don't find a way to play better, then expect a similar result as the last series.

    Bull pen is gassed. Not looking forward to the 6th inning.

    Not a good sign for this to be true in March.

    So, is it April Fools that the Astros are 0-4?

    With each major arm in the vaunted bullpen blowing games?

    Alright, finally it's opening day.

    Off season took forever.

    No it's the first game of the season.

    What in the hell else would I be talking about? It is weird that Blanco is getting the opening day nod I will admit, but he had a good spring.

    9 of the 23 pitchers on Houston’s 40 man roster are on the IL. Coleman is the only healthy 40 man arm in the minors. I personally would not mind seeing Scott swapped out for Strotman or Contreras to get a fresh arm up there until JV or Sousa or comes back.

    I think overall I liked what I saw from the first series. Starting pitching looked good and Yainer looks like he might be primed for a huge season.

    Too bad, the Yankees will benefit from this series in the standings because Blue Jays will get spanked. Timely hitting and shut down bullpen will be back.
