    No reason that they don't win at least 2 of 3 and should sweep.

    50% chance 2/3
    30% chance 3/3
    15% chance 1/3
    5% chance 0/3

    These next 6 games will determine if this team is "ready for prime time"

    I hope the Astros got some rest and we don’t get the Carlos zambrano special :(

    If Yordan is gonna DNP, I'd rather the game be postponed.

    Extra day for Hader and the entire staff to rest too.

    F*** the Twins

    Hope everything is still on for tonight. Heading up from the RGV to see my first game since the pre-Covid years. The school that I teach at won the 6A softball championship this year and they are being recognized tonight. [Side note: if you guys haven't come across the game, it was quite an ending. We were down 9-3 with one out in the last inning, and we wound up winning 11-9 with a walk off grand slam!]

    Because they didn't win the series against the twins, a sweep is much needed to make up ground.

    Rangers are right behind the astros and their offense is waking up.

    I blame last series on my ******* cubs fan friend who is in Vegas and decided he would finally bet on the Astros….then we lost back to back games.

    He’s sworn off betting the Astros and he’s a ****ing hater. We should be good for a sweep!

    Wrigley was prob the worst series of the season -- swept by a sub-500 team.

    Lawd have mercy.

    That series and the first two games @ Yankees marked the season-low 12 games under 500 for the Astros.

    Houston more pennants and championships since they both existed, so at least there's that.

    Don't wanna see Hader today. Dude needs a 3-day rest reset.

    Let Abreu and Pressly pitch the 8th and 9th if there's a close lead. One of the other bullpen guys needs a 2-inning appearance. Blanco prob needs to remain sub-90 pitches too.

    Power came back on this afternoon and a few minutes later I got hooked up with lower-level seats for tonight's game. Today was a good day.
