    All series talk goes in here. Non series talk goes somewhere else. No PVP that can be found from other sources if you need it. All games are broadcast on Root Sports unless otherwise noted.

    5-6 Taijuan Walker, RHP (2-1, 1.80) vs. Doug Fister, RHP (2-3, 4.60) 7:10

    5-7 Nathan Karns, RHP (3-1, 3.81) vs. Dallas Keuchel, LHP (2-4, 5.11) 6:10 MLBN (out of market)

    I'll be happy with at least 3 out of 4. Huge series. I want a sweep bad. We avoid King Felix once again so that's good.

    Going to the Saturday game.

    Need to win this series and start making some hay.

    We dodged King Feliz although he caught a beatdown here last season

    Hopefully the bats have turned the corner. Next up... the starting pitching.

    We need 3 out of 4 against Seattle, especially playing at home.

    With the grand re-opening of Club Astros, I feel like 3 of 4 here is on the appetizer menu

    WLWW. Get it started right and cement a rotation spot, Devenski!

    Also, McHugh has pitched pretty well against Seattle in his career. At least in Seattle from what I remember...hopefully at home too

    Devenski is the least of my concerns right now. I'm more concerned about Keuchel and McHugh getting any of their lost mojo back.

    Tajuan Walker officially scares me now. When on, he's filthy.

    3 out of 4 and we are right back into things.

    This is a huge series for the team.

    Have a feeling the team could use some of the runs they scored last night tonight with this lineup. After the top 3 the rest of the lineup is down right pitiful.

    I really like this lineup. Stack the deck, have two lefty PHs to counter any potential situational RHP usage.

    OK...we've seen signs from Gomez and Castro of snapping out of it. It's Tyler and Marwin's turn now.

    I'll consider it a successful night for Gattis if he doesn't GIDP all night. I'm trying to set a reasonable expectation for him right now.

    If the Astros could only sweep this series ( and I realize that is totally unreasonable) they'd be smack in the thick of things again and 'back in it.' If if if...please baseball gods, have mercy.
