    Let's play a pretend game. We actually do WELL against piss poor pitching this time around. Let's sweep these clowns.

    I hate putting expectations on this team, but after the pathetic showing against the Royals recently and yesterday's game I fully expect to see the Astros sweep the Royals 3-0. Anything less will be unsatisfying.

    There's some pretty nice lineup combos when they can finally add Breg/Tucker in the mix, whenever that is...

    At this rate Tucker may need a rehab assignment.

    Altuve hasn’t hit a home run in awhile. Leading off with one would be cool.

    He has only 6 xbh this month, and 3 of them were in the Mariner series.

    I prefer the Altuve who gets two hits a game and is a terror.

    Blum taking 2 days off to try and recover from the rough loss yesterday.

    Bagwell sounds like he just woke up or took a couple of hits of weed.
