I sure am glad that this last series is a reminder that Joe West is still an umpire and not doubling as a turkey for the Today Show around Thanksgiving.

Get used to it. Any close call is going to go to the East Coast team in the postseason.

But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

Super Marwin with the grab in LF.

HanRam up with the final chance for the Red Sox.

Marwin has made good plays in LF.
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it
Truth isn't easy, the easy part's shit

Ramirez doubles with 2 out. Nothing's ever easy. Chris Young in as the pinch runner.

But Devers grounds out 4-3 on the first pitch!

100 wins for the Astros!!! And the Red Sox are still wondering whether they'll win their division!

Bottom 9

Giles in.
Betts, down 0-2 on a pair of sliders, grounds out 6-3.
Moreland, seeing nothing but sliders thru 1-2, 2-2, lines the first fastball he sees to MarGo for the second out.
Ramirez, seeing nothing but triple digit heat thru 0-2, groundball doubles on a hanging slider into left.
Chris Young pinch running.
Devers grounds out 4-3!

Win 100!

So the good news:  while I've been out of the country the last couple of weeks, the Astros are 13-2.

The bad news:  I land back in Houston in about an hour.
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

If Peacock starts, I’d think
seriously about Morton in the pen. He can dominate for 6-9 outs.

I think I'd flop that order, but I would definitely think about using them as a tandem.

I like what you said a few days ago about him. He wants the ball. Also the quote I saw I from him about seizing the opportunity. He seems to grasp the situation and has the fire.  Not everyone has that mentality.

The bad news:  If the Astros fall in a hole you will be hunted down...

The good news:  I understand you can alter the course of history if you stick enough Frito pies down you neck.

11-3 while I was abroad but undefeated since I've been back. Also, it's good to be back.

Nice win.
