I am so fucking nervous. Will be watching at a local tavern where at 6:30 I'll be hosting a staff meeting of my coffee shop employees (scheduled weeks ago, of course). Like as not I'll have nervous-drunk myself into a shameful quivering mass by then.

T2

Betts flies out to center

Moreland walks on 5 pitches. Should have had strike 2

Pedroia quickly up 2-0, 3-1, 3-2 on a makeup call and walks
2 on 1 out

Devers quickly 0-2 on fouls, 1-2, STRIKES HIM OUT

Leon, 2 on 2 out. 0-2 count, ball through the shit, reddicks throw goes to 3rd and GETS PEDROIA, maybe before Moreland scores...
Might get a review here... and we do

And they rule he scored

2-1 Astros

It was pretty close, I was yelling at the TV to make a play at home but they obviously would not have made it.  I think Moreland could beat me in a race... but not by much!

Reddick lines one into right for a single

YULI 1-2 count, 2-2, 3-2, good AB here from yuli, reddick on the move, but yuli flies out to center

Marwin down 0-2, strikes out

McCann 1-2 count, 2-2, ball gets past Leon and reddick moves to 2nd, full count. McCann really making sale work, fouls off a couple, strikes out on about the 9 or 10 pitch I  believe

2-1 Astros after 2

Chris Berman never shuts up, does he?

Is that who's PBP on the radio?  If so, Aussie's better off with the TV feed.

Verlander on 37 to start this inning - a lot of pitches in the 2nd inning.  A quick one here, I hope.

Benintendi hitting .400 this year with 2 outs and RISP, per Sparks. Leads baseball.

At Opening Day 2006, Andyzipp and I determined the following:

"Andy wanted to know if the “Hanley Ramirez” comes before the Rusty Trombone, or after the Dirty Sanchez. After some thought, it was determined that the Handjob Ramirez is actually a component; it's the reacharound subset of the Rusty Trombone."

Springer down 0-2, 1-2, strikes out, fastball up and in

Bregman lines it straight at sale and gets an infield hit out of it.

Altuve 2-1 count, grounds right at bogarts for a 6-4-3 double play

2-1 Astros after 3

Yes.

He's also missed badly on several so he may not be helping HPU to expand the zone I  his favor.

The outfield rotation against Devers made that catch tougher than expected for Reddick. He still probably didn't have a shot against the tagging Betts either way.

Correa pops up to second

Gattis, 0-2, 1-2, 2-2, 3-2, LINES IT OFF THE WALL IN LEFT, SLIDES INTO SECOND WITH A DOUBLE

Reddick 0-1, line into center, traps it but it's called an out, hinch should challenge and does. HAS to be overturned

At the risk of being unpopular, he was flat-footed between the bases.  I could see him being thrown out at 3B if the ball had been ruled down.  I suspect he would’ve held at 2nd. 

Marwin made it moot, though.

Bogarts 0-2, chops to short

Ramirez singles into left on the first pitch

Benintendi 1-0, 1-1, 1-2, grounds to Bregman basically playing short, steps on the bag and tosses to first, double play. Much needed

Still 4-2 Astros

FWIW, radio guys concurred with the Gattis placement.

There is NO WAY Gattis does not get to third if that ball as ruled trapped in real time.  He was standing halfway  when the play was made.  And that's how replay official is supposed to place runners.

Glad Marwin made it a moot point.

And glad for that 6-3 DP.

Let's get some more.

Right, at that point it's safer to go to 3rd than 2nd, longer throw

Gattis got a pretty good look at the play and thought it was caught, he retreated based on what he saw, not the umps call.

Bregman 3-0, 3-1, 3-2, strikes out on a change

Altuve DRIVES ON TO DEEP LEFT CENTER AGAIN AND IT'S GONE!!!! FIRST PITCH AGAIN!!!! 5-2 ASTROS I thought they were showing a replay at first

correa bounces out to short

5-2 Astros after 5

B6

Gattis 0-1, 1-1, 2-1, 2-2, terrible strike 2 call, 3-2, rockets it down the line in left for a double!

Reddick 1-0, 2-0, should be 3-0 on check swing but 2-1, 3-1, walks in on the 5th ball of the AB

That's in for sale. 2 on 0 out

I guess it was an either or call.  Either Devo or Harris was going to go two today.  So long as they don’t just go one each and bring in another pitcher for the 9th.

So, I couldn’t watch the game today because of work, and I won’t be able to watch tomorrow for the same reason.

If the Astros win tomorrow, I have to respect the streak, don’t I?

Does it reset if the Astros advance?

Two observations from the park.  (1)  It wasn't nearly as loud as 2005.  Pretty loud, but not mind-numbing loud.  (2)  Our row of seats was empty except for us in the 9th.  We were in the nosebleeds, but there were lots of empty seats by the 9th.

I'm discovering that it's not all that easy to root for the Yankees. You'd think it'd be easier what with the jillions of fans they have all over the place.

Fuck the yankees, and fuck the league office for force feeding us those fuckers.
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

Apparently from Beaumont.  Rice fed.

Not that corn consumption is exclusive to the Midwest, but Bruce is from Beaumont, so the trope is more likely to be "built like timber from the piney woods of east Texas" or "a roughneck from the old oilfields in the golden triangle." DarkStar could do much better elaborating on these generalities.

0-4 Subcontinentals.  It's the top of the 8th, two outs, Judge is facing  Allen with two on, first and second. Judge strikes out.  it's very satisfying.

With good reason. They almost won it all last year and now they’re healthy.

I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing AstroTurf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, torture of Bud Selig.

Healthy is a relative term, but they're definitely possessed/relentlessly competent/over losing.

Judge with the golden sombrero tonight. I was glad to see the Yankees break up the no hitter because I didn't want to see the MV3 Altuve's night upstaged.

If the 'Stros get through the Red Sox, then we can agonize about the Native Americans of Cleveland.

Cleveland is kicking the shit out of the Yankees after having stared their Charlie Morton in game ONE.

Somewhere, deep in the jungles of Sumatra, or in MMP, Hudson is boiling over after that shift.

Who is gonna break the news to HH that he cant watch any games in this series?

HH watched the game three rows behind Bagwell and Biggio courtesy of bleach. So did I.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

Well dang, I thought he was hard at work and couldn't even get scores or something... what a great game to see.

That would be "built like the wood rising in Dark Star's pants as he lays down gently on the pine straw with his glistening, nubile young muse."

When Jim invited me, he reminded me that the matchup was Verlander v Sale, and no job was worth missing that.
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.

Good for you, slacking off from work for sporting events is a great Aussie tradition too.
