    It's just fun to see as much "trouble" Colby has stirred up apparently in other club houses, he's been nothing but loved since he stepped into an Astros uniform.

    I remember him saying last season was the most fun he's had since being in the majors. The chemistry of the team he said was just unbelievable.

    It's hard to find a team that enjoys playing the game more than these guys out there.

    Buddy of mine's been calling him The Revenant.

    Seems like every time the Stros have put up a crooked number early the starter has given it right back in the next inning or 2. Time for that to change.

    I think he's a different personality that is accepted and welcomed with the Stros.

    Lots of movement on McHugh's pitches tonight. Even after that hit. Still a huge improvement.

    He's a late bloomer. Finally starting to show that first round talent.

    No kidding! Let's keep this lead and build on it. McHugh looks good tonight so far

    when (not if) we win the WS, can we get one of those sweet woven banners, like what they had in the astrodome? these little plastic flags by the train are jokes. also remove the "oxy" eyesore.

    Val has worked some solid at bats this year. Much better than last season IMO. The power will come, but if he can work deeper into counts, and go the other way like he has a couple of times this season, then maybe he can work that BA up to the .240's/.250's.

    Can we have an exception in the rule? Can we put the pitcher to hit instead of the catcher?????

    Classic Castro. Watch a close pitch get called a strike, and then go flailing at a ball down and in with 2 strikes.

    It is so depressing how terrible he looks at the plate right now.

    It's fun to watch McHugh when his cutter is on. Not only will he got quite a few swing and misses, but you'll see those weak pop ups or ground outs, and you can tell he really has his stuff.

    He's completely lost at the plate, tough to watch.

    On the plus side, as hookem mentioned earlier, Valbuena has been having some really good ABs.

    Crowd on their feet in the 3rd inning in a 2 strike count. I love it. Great job Houston supporting your team!
