    Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined for 20 points, their fewest in a game they both played in over last 2 seasons,

    Livingston was awesome, and Barbosa.

    Igoudola stopped Lebron who started hot.

    Irving scored a lot, but missed way too many shots.

    Golden State in 5?

    Why are we talking about the NBA?

    Hope the Astros can keep up this recent streak of winning

    Yet GS still won handily.

    Series has equal chance of being a sweep as going 6. Likely only goes 5.

    OKC f***** up majorly allowing a 3-1 comeback. They had the Warriors by their throat, but couldn't close it.
    ______

    Stros disappointed today, but have played well of late.

    Right now, I'd take getting swept by OAK to win the 4-gamer vs DAL.

    GSW played very very well last night.

    Those thinking this will be an easy series are wrong.

    The Raptors handled the Cavs on the road two separate times.

    was watching the latest season of the unbreakable kimmy. Construction worker to Titus: "You remind of Carlos Delgado of the Mets and that's hot."

    My friends, I almost lost it.

    The thing is the Warriors won easily without having good games from Curry or Thompson.

    It's the fantasy baseballing of the forum; these fans believe constant tinkering - as they do daily with their rotisserie team - is the answer.

    Fans only see what's right in front of them. What the Astros see are ceilings. If Gomez can right whatever is wrong (and, man - there's a lot wrong) - then his bat is *exactly* what this teams needs. Unfortunately, whatever chance he has of salvaging his tenure here can't be accomplished on the bench, or in Corpus, or in the batting cage. He *has* to play. And the leash can't be 4 at-bats.

    The other thing people need to wrap their heads around is that Jake Marisnick is not a good offensive player. Sure, he may have a streak here or there... but long-term, he's simply not a viable solution. He's never finished a Major League season with an OPS above .700 and if you look at his minor league numbers, with each increase in competition, his numbers consequently decreased:

    A .834
    A+ .783
    AA .752
    AAA .736
    MLB: .604

    He's valuable - in the *right* role. Starting everyday is almost certainly not that role.

    I actually doubt any of these reactionary folks play fantasy baseball (or even know why its called a rotisserie league)... moreso, its likely the NBA-centric background of this BBS that has people applying basketball concepts/mindsets to baseball.

    Its far easier to shuffle daily lineups or literally bench guys in the NBA for stretches (since you can bring them back in)... as opposed to baseball, where once you take a player out, he's done.

    We have posts suggesting to take Correa out after a couple AB's.... or to pinch-run for a player in the 4th inning.

    You also have people suggesting they "play harder", or are "too soft", and need to play with a "killer instinct".

    Spider-Man beat the avengers. Dead pool beat the avengers. The avengers beat the avengers. So of course Justice League would beat the avengers. I don't know where you're coming from with that. Superman, Wonder Woman, and the Flash could beat them solo. Hulk is the only avenger that would even put up a fight.

    WTF is happening in this thread?

    Steph Curry and comic book movies truly are everywhere.
