    Philly has to rely on Nola and Wheeler to give them length. They don’t have the weapons we do.

    5 runs in a postseason game should be enough to win it every time. Can't blame the offense. They did their part against the Phillies number 2.

    This is 100% on JV.

    They should have pulled JV in the 4th. He hasn't been good in the WS and they were hitting him hard. Our BP is good as well.

    Verlander couldn’t perform when it counted. He will get another chance but wow, that’s brutal for JV to be spotted 5 runs and give it up.

    Dusty doesn't know what to do except maybe what Lasorda would have done back in 1978.

    JV and Garcia tricked us. They were who we thought they were. That’s alright, time to tighten the screws and make our adjustments.

    Terrible decision to put Luis in that spot

    At this point, I think it might be best to tandem JV….. But damn, I would hate to put money into a so call ACE if he doesn’t deliver in the post season and has a track record of doing so….

    Man, that was devastating to lose that game…. The offense did it’s part, they put 5 on the board. The BP did it’s part….

    Anyways, we will see if we can bounce back.

    Mostly on Dusty although he has been great up till last night.

    Gotta get JV out of there after the Schwarber walk.

    That's the spot for Neris eventhough it's the 5th.

    Can't put Garcia in vs heart of lineup in 10th. He gives up too many HR.

    Stick to what worked in Seattle Brown is next up.

    Feels Like Houston is snake bitten.. always so close to glory.

    1. Oilers 80s/90s
    2. Phi slamma jamma
    3. Rockets. Win back to back Chips and nationally it’s because Jordan didn’t play those two years (even though he played in 95, didn’t have a PF and got beat by Orlando)
    4. Astros. Heartbreak loss to Philly in 80, Mets in 86, Biggio Bagwell years came up short.
    5. We finally have a team that is universally regarded as a generational talented team and we win the WS. Only to be known know as cheaters(even if everyone was using the media room)
    Heartbreaking losses to Nationals, being outplayed by Braves and here we are.
    Astros have a chance to be viewed nationally as a dynasty. Just have to win the WS.
    If not, we are like the Braves and Bills. Will be forever known as a great team that couldn’t get it done without cheating …if we lose.

    Come on Stros, winners write the narrative. Win this thing! Make this last 6 years a dynasty. 6 ALCS, 4 WS appearances, 2 Chips.

    It’s right here for the taking. Let’s go get game two!

    Can't excuse top of lineup

    2-14. 5 Ks

    Double play with 1st and 3rd and 1 out and starter on the ropes

    Hensley might get his shot today. Or maybe not
