What a team.

Definitely fun to watch.
I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
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

No kidding. Sprinting to the finish line. When one or two falter, another 2 or 3 are there to pick them up.  Someone(s) are nearly always hot.

The depth on this team is unreal.
Another trenchant comment by a jealous lesser intellect.

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.
I leave the country on the 3rd and wont be back until the 19th, maybe the cosmic balance will somehow maintain.
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

With all due respect to the BBGs ...

Tonight's Astros win clinched home field advantage for Houston in a prospective Astros-Nationals World Series.

Ooops, AJ brought in August Liriano, not September Liriano. Going to try Devenski now.

Liriano got the biggest out in the game.  A good hold IMO.

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

It was rough seeing that hanging slider right down Broadway on that 0-2 pitch.   Glad it was just a double.

When Bagwell is in the booth they need to tape that shit and send it straight to the Library of Congress.

I would love a tape of Bagwell and Blum talking baseball.

I had this same thought. At 0-2, I said to my dog and TV, “do not hang a slider. Bury it.” Centeno went out to talk to him and, I’ll bet, said the same thing. The damn, he hung one. If Bregman has been guarding the line, it was an out, but we are lucky he hit it on the ground.

Be careful with this crazy talk.

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

Nice win.

I planned my long trip for mid-November so I will not miss any baseball.

I do not think so. Striking out Moreland was huge. Liriano did not get the call he should have gotten on the first pitch to Devers, missed with the next pitch FB, and he could not recover. The August version would not have Ked Moreland.

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

Does is concern you that Morton hasn't pitched out of the pen this year whereas Peacock has?

I said IF Peacock starts.

Not if he starts an inning. I probably would not have him come in with runners on.
