    Wheeler likely out of ASG with back tightness that occurred in tonight's game.

    If they don't give the spot up to Blanco I'll be pissed.

    This is his moment.

    Blanco was good. Offense did enough.

    Didn't like Hader pitching, but he did the job. Still say he needs a 3-day rest reset.

    Enjoy every win.

    Astros sleep tonight 1.5 behind Seattle.

    Oh damn I got all excited thinking we might have a replacement and totally whiffed on which league he's in.

    I'm still hoping somebody isn't gonna pitch, normally we have a pitcher that won't due to pitching on Sat or Sun before the game.

    And he needs to pitch. I hope he makes the all-star team but prefer he not pitch in a meaningless game.

    Yep. Since he’s pitching on sunday and won’t pitch in the ASG regardless, I don’t think he would be selected as a replacement for that reason… unless its a token gesture by MLB.

    Blanco has already earned All-Star status -- only thing stopping him is the "substance" suspension.

    His availability to pitch is a nonfactor.

    An All-Star is an All-Star.

    Marlins announcers were also saying it's because of his suspension.

    It’s not even the record for this season lol. The Dodgers currently have Glasnow, Buehler, Kershaw, Yamamoto, May, Gonsolin, and Sheehan on the IL.

    I think it would have been nice of the Astros gave the available seats for last night's game for free to those in town to at least get some air conditioning extend dollar dog night to last night as well. Would have been a great way to help those in need to have an emotional escape for a few hours.

    They had $5 seats yesterday and today. There's always a way to get a free drink too. There's a designated driver booth near the Saint Arnold bar. Sign your name that you aren't drinking, and you get a coupon for a free soda or bottled water.
