Yuli batting, 2 outs, Marwin on second. Pops up to catcher Vasquez in foul territory near the first base dugout.

Astros lead 3-0

Texted a few friends in Boston today. One of them informed me that he doesn't start to pay attention to a sport until Boston's inevitable postseason starts.

MarGo! Strangest thing just happened where I was following on Gameday and thought Gattis was the third out. I just found fifty bucks, is the feeling!!

I've had gameday fake me out.  Sometimes it'll flash the strikeout animation,  sometimes the homerun one.

Boston goes down in the first, no runs, no hits, one error (on Bregman), one man left on base. End of one Astros lead 3-0.

The sound off the bat was slightly erotic.

When Bregman was down 0-2 on pitches that looked like balls, I was about to post bitching about the strike zone, then BOOM!
