Watching the game at Whole Foods with dueling broadcasts. I didn't know ESPN had picked it up.

God. Damnit.

I've been listening to the shitburger ESPN broadcast this WHOLE DAMN TIME.

That's tragic. Plus, the ESPN feed is noticeably behind compared to AT&T Sports.

Nothing wrong with Verlander staying in to strike Odor out again...

My buddy moved up to row 5 or so behind the plate.

He's wearing any orange jersey, his wife is wearing a white sweater thing.

The bar I just left had the ATT, FSW, and espn broadcasts up on various screens.

A little disorienting.

Odor with an ole' error on the McCann  groundball. Wonder if they miss Kinsler?
Calhoun came through the Dodgers' system as a 2nd baseman.

It should be on every television network with the scroll at the bottom saying "See what happens Jon. This is what happens when you fuck a stranger in the ass."

“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).”

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

37-7 as it stands.  That's a steaming pile of regret, I'd say.
Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.

Chicks dig the long ball.  Gotta have Prince Fielder, right?

This is deeply satisfying. I was against moving the team to the AL, but if they wanted to create a rival that I would hate more than the Phillies, Mets, Braves, Dodgers, Cubs and Cardinals combined: mission accomplished. Between Hamels, Bannister, Odor and Gomez and the odious Metroplex and bandwagon fan base, last year hit me hard. Not gonna lie-
their comeuppance this series has been sweet.

Also, it's great that so many different hitters seem to be getting right just in time for the playoffs!

Wonder if they regret signing Odor to a 6 years/$49.5M (2017-22) deal.   Well, one time he punched another player.

Liriano in September: 2.08 ERA, .737 WHIP, .133 avg against.

And yes, I waited until he was out of the game to post this.

+1.

Especially Correa.    Having him and Verlander on fire together is fun to watch.

Only 1 team in the 55 seasons of Houston MLB won at least 98 regular season games, before this year.

He has regressed in every category except home runs. There has to be some second guessing.

Fuck the Rangers right in the fucking ear.  Karma.  And what a way to end the game. 
Boom!

At least they didn't inconvenience their fans by playing this week.
