Springer in CF, Maybin in RF. Is this usual when they are lineup together? Reversed?

Yeah, I like my port of entry into the US to be my final destination and not have a US connection.  Don't know direct from Aus to US flights available, but LA is probably the most common.  Probably depends on the airline though.

Top 3

National broadcast for me is definitely East Coast bias.

McCann, strikes out looking on a monster curve.  1 out.
Maybin, grounds out 4-3, 2 out
Fisher, works it full, swinging bunt and beats the throw!
Springer up for the second time.. mad at himself for missing a pitch, works it full, walks, Fisher to 2nd
Bregman pops up the first pitch to short.  3 outs.

Still 0-0 but Pomerantz getting up there in pitch count.

So you got me curious...you can get Perth to Houston direct through Dubai and Doha.  There are a couple of other multiple stop routes that make Houston the US entry point, such as through Singapore, but they're not really "direct".

With the new(ish) BA flight out of Austin, you can go "direct" to a bunch of places through London ... change of planes in Heathrow, but if you are staying on BA it is OK.  That is the long way to Bangkok, though.

From what I was told yesterday, flying a military passenger C-130 from Cali to Vietnam in '68 was not a recommended flight.
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

I've done Bangkok through Moscow-Singapore a bunch, and that flight now goes through Manchester instead of Moscow.  It's quicker other ways because you sit around Singapore a long time.  But it's on Singapore Airlines, which is my favorite, and if you get stuck in any airport in the world, Singapore is the one you want.

Via Dubai or Doha is the long way around.  I went via Narita to avoid any 12 + hour legs.  There is no easy way to do it really, been a while since I checked but Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne to LAX or DFW is a fucking long haul and then ou have a domestic flight...

Altuve leads off the 4th
strikes out looking on an outside curve.   Hunter seems to have a decided left-side tilt to the strike zone today.

Correa, back up the middle but Holt snags it and throws him out 4-3.  2 out.

Gattis, jammed into a popup to short.   3 out

0-0

Perth to Doha is quicker than Sydney to DFW.  The Perth-Doha-Houston time in the air is only an hour or so longer than Perth-Sydney-DFW-Houston.  But there's 8 hours or so sitting around in Doha.  Which isn't so bad, the lounge in Doha is excellent.  Don't know what the Perth-Narita is, but Narita-Houston is 14 hours.

You can go direct from Narita to Houston now?  I guess things change after 11 years.

Bennetendi  checks but a little too far for the first strike, strikes out swinging on Lance's 40th pitch.  1 out.

Betts, stuck at 2-2, works the walk..

Moreland,  McCann can't corral it and Betts goes to second on a wild pitch. and walks.. men on 1st and 2nd with 1 out.

Ramirez, grounds to second.. e4.. Betts scores., Moreland to Third.

Devers, off the wall for a double.. Moreland scores, Ramirez to third..     Walks are a bitch.

Vazquez, chops to short, Correa looks Ramirez back and throws out Vazquez.   2 out.

Holt quickly 0-2, back to 2-2, and looks at an outer half third strike 3 outs.

0 - 2 Boston after 4.

Gurriel leads off the 5th.  2-0, 3-0, not sure that was a strike,  walk.
McCann first pitch popup to second.  1 out.
Maybin shows bunt but pulls it back.. 0-1, 1-1,  grounds to deep short.. turns out FC, Gurriel out at 2nd.  2 outs.
Fisher, 1-0,  Maybin draws a throw over,   Maybin thrown out.. again probably not but.. 3 outs.

0 - 2

That had a lot to do with the destination!  I made very sure to avoid that flight at the time.

Vietnam's on my list of places, so I was talking to old hippie cousin and he brought it up.

How far is NZ from the USofA?  Go to Australia first?

And after that long haul you find your self in New Zealand.. where men are men and sheep are nrevouus.

I was in some airport or another in Europe, sitting there, minding my own business, and one of the stores surrounding the waiting area must have been a place that sold leather goods or something similar. I suppose to draw attention to the supple nature of the lining of their outerwear offerings they had on display a figure of a sheep, maybe three feet tall. In retrospect it disappoints me that I wasn't fully aware that this would happen, but in short order a rowdy group of youngish German men came marching through and one of these fellows spied the sheep and promptly commenced to mount it and copulate with it. Despite the juvenile stupidity of the whole thing it was actually quite hilarious, you know, 6 am sheep shagging. I did reflect on what sort of idiot clerk would deliberately place the sheep at the entrance of the shop but who knows, maybe they have learned that it attracts custom.

Fucking long way away, that's how far it is. More time than you want to sit in an airplane. Despite that, I highly recommend Australia to the traveler. Once you get there you can travel all over Asia surprisingly inexpensively on one or another of the budget airlines they have.

Bottom of 5

Bradley, grounds softly to the right side.. Lance picks it up and throws him out 1-3.  1 out.

Bogaerts, McCullers loosing command a bit.. 2-1,  Rips a ball into the left field corner for a double.

Benintendi, 2-0, 2-1, 2-2, grounder through the right side for a single.. Bogaerts scores.   

Betts, 0-1, 1-1, grounds past a diving Bregman for a single and that's it for McCullers

Tony Sipp to take the bump.

Most budget airlines in other parts of the world are better than the standard US airlines.  Unless you're in Russia, in which case there might be urine running down the aisle.  But the budget airlines in Asia are excellent.  At least the ones I've flown.

It's stunning how fast this offense can flip the switch from godlike to pathetic and back.
Hopefully the four day break (five counting the likely spring training B game tomorrow) before the playoffs will let them reset.

When you fly into Domodedovo in Moscow, you pass through the airplane boneyard along the runway.  Rusted out old planes, planes that have crashed, guys out there robbing parts...every airport has this, but that's the only one I know where it's visible from the terminal.

Betts 2-1, Home Run.   Way to give it back Luke.

Moreland 1-1, 2-2, 3-2, K's swinging 1 out.

Ramirez, 0-1, goes to a knee swinging for the second strike, 1-2, K's swinging 2 outs.

Devers 0-1, 0-2,   Wow.. needed an extra pitch to K him.   3 outs.

2-6 Boston.

It's stunning how fast this offense can flip the switch from godlike to pathetic and back.
Hopefully the four day break (five counting the likely spring training B game tomorrow) before the playoffs will let them reset.

What HH said. Post season pitching will be tough to hit.

Maybe he wanted to see how he responded with that little extra bit of pressure in a game that "counts", at least as much as any regular-season games count for the Astros right now. Whoever pitches today knows that the goal (forcing Boston to use Sale) has either been accomplished or not, whereas whoever pitched yesterday knew that they had to win in order to keep the goal within reach. That's all I've got.

Dunno. Yesterday was a very important game for us for sure, and I was surprised he did not go with McHugh, Had we won, McCullers would have matched up with Sale. Nothing bigger than that. Hinch said consistently his goal was to win every game, but some of his personnel decisions had me scratching my head.

The two I think of are games against KC and Oakland with identical 7-3 leads in the late innings, but our JV relievers could not hold the fort, and Giles ultimately was the loser both times.

Every team can say this too, though, in a 162 game season, and the Astros won their share of improbable comebacks. Probably not useful to "What If" each lost game.

The two I think of are games against KC and Oakland with identical 7-3 leads in the late innings, but our JV relievers could not hold the fort, and Giles ultimately was the loser both times.

Every team can say this too, though, in a 162 game season, and the Astros won their share of improbable comebacks. Probably not useful to "What If" each lost game.

True, not unique to the Astros. Just the ones that got away tend to stick out in your memory.
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.

I think the saying is something like you’re going to win 50 and you’re going to lose 50 no matter what, it’s what you do with the other 62 that makes your season.  So the Astros are 50-11 right now.  Tip of the cap for Cleveland for their season.

Everyone is 0-0 starting Thursday.
