    Since Peña is batting 2nd today the Astros have about an 87% chance for a win. 40-6 now with Peña batting 2nd.

    I do think any question about Gurriel starting at 1B if he is on the roster in the playoffs has been answered.

    5.48 R/G in those 46 (252R) vs 4.19 in the other 112 (469R)

    eta: I'm actually pretty shocked at the disparity, but it certainly explains the 40-6 record

    Haha… well after the game I watched Hocus Pocus 2 with the kids and then this morning did a row class(brutal) with my wife so the knowledge and taste thing is questionable.

    I like todays lineup. Please rake.

    On another topic - not looking forward to playing winner of Blue Jays - Mariners series. That will be a hard fought series with the winner riding a ton of momentum into the ALDS. I’m worried about a trap game in MM where our offense just falls flat and our pitching isn’t at its peak due to a week off

    If you'd like for the Rays to be in the Astros bracket then I guess you're rooting for the Rays to win today.

    The other day Dusty said that Yordan will be playing LF quite a bit in the playoffs unless the ankle ( or some other body part) hinders the plan.

    That tells me they expect to start Yuli at 1B and DH Mancini those games.

    With one exception, I do too.

    Since the WC teams will probably use better pitchers in the WC series, the match-ups should be in our favor.

    When I see Yuli, I can't help hoping he pulls a Damned Yankee special and performs in the playoffs if he's going to be here anyway. I'm rooting for him, even if I don't understand why he's playing.

    Pena
    71 R
    21 HR
    60 RBI

    Correa
    70 R
    22 HR
    63 RBI

    One has been buried at the bottom of the lineup for 2/3 of the season, the other smack dab in the heart of the lineup.

    Interesting.
