    We couldn't avoid him forever. Losing streak goes one more game.

    **** that noise. Correa dethrones him with a soul-crushing blast that makes the Pujols game 6 winner look like a ****ing bunt.

    Felix is great, but we beat him his only start here in Houston last year, and were 2-2 against him overall

    Not sure why everyone thinks facing him is a death sentence

    Let's Go Astros, 3 game sweep!

    Did you not see the offense in years past when they were beating Felix?

    Not much either way. The only Stros with significant success against him are Altuve (8-18) and Rasmus (7-10). As a team they only have 106 PAs against him so none of this really means much. If he's on, he'll shut them down, if he's not, they have a chance. Astute analysis, I know.

    Obie is going to have to pitch very well because it's unlikely we get many runs against Hernandez.

    Basically, Obie needs to go 6 IP and 2 R for us to have a shot.

    Yes I watch every game

    I also understand baseball and think we should go ahead and play the game tonight even though some of you so called fans think we shouldn't waste our time

    Obie OPS against their roster is actually lower than Hernandez is against ours

    Obviously I know that he is a stud and Obie isn't

    Need a few HR to start showing their heads again

    Yeah their offense is pretty bad as well. Hopefully it ends in a pitchers duel and we tee off their bullpen. :grin:
