What is up with Reddick?
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

He shows as "eligible" in the lineup card. I wonder if that means he really can play.
Another trenchant comment by a jealous lesser intellect.

Hurt his back on Friday and has sat out 4 of 5 games since.  The only game he went for it was Sunday, where he went 0 for 4 with 2 K's.    It's not considered something that will keep him out of any playoff games.   Still, it'll be good to see him play some in Boston.

I had the impression he is.  I think Hinch is letting him rest while the team is producing and then will have him hitting against Boston.

Hit #200 on the season for Jose Altuve.    4th straight season.   Fucking boss.

Lately I've been amusing myself considering Hudson's assertion that Altuve would hit.400 if he swung only af balls he could actually reach with the bat. That might not be that far from the truth.

Well my 1pm meeting that precluded me from going to the game lasted 15 minutes.

Meanwhile my buddy sends me a pic 8 rows back of hone plate.  Giving away seats on stub hub.

Oh well.

Top of the 3rd.
2-1 Astros.  Verlander touched for solo HR in 2nd.

That Calhoun kid was their main return on the Darvish deal.

Speedy outfielder with a big butt.  Weird combo.

Correa slashes a 2-out double down the RF line. Glad to see him starting to get his groove back some. Marwin grounds out to end their top of the 3rd. Still 2-1 Good Guys.

another lousy turnout for the game. Looks like alot are Astros fans. They really may regret not switching this series.

That Kerry Shook Woodlands church guy, is one weird looking dude.
There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese.

Deshields flies out to LF on a ball that looked like Marwin may have not caught cleanly. Rangers aren't challenging. Guess they are in a hurry to go home.

I know about the back, but I thought he was ok.

“He’s wanted to play and we’re being pretty cautious with him," Hinch said before Wednesday  afternoon's series finale against the Rangers. "It’s convenient to give him the day off. I want to get Marwin (Gonzalez) in the outfield again because he’s going to play a lot of outfield moving forward. (I’m) getting Tony (Kemp) in the game again. It’s tough to sit him, but it’s probably the prudent thing to do. He should be back in there (Thursday).”
