per espn:

Keuchel is the most extreme ground ball starter in the game with a 68 percent ground ball rate, but the Red Sox were third in the majors in OPS against Baseball-Reference.com designation of ground ball pitchers (compared to 25th against fly ball pitchers).  and

During the regular season, Altuve hit .381/.441/.629 against fastballs in the upper half of the zone. Pomeranz throws his fastball in the upper half 74 percent of the time. So ...
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

Still boggles my mind that only in this lineup would Marwin bat 8th.

This arrangement worked out pretty well yesterday.  Let's roll.

And that it makes perfect sense he's batting 8.

By the way, I think legally MLB requires us to refer to this game as ALDS Game 2 -Astros vs. Red Sox, sponsored by Doosan.

Aaaaand then Angel gives Betts time as Keuchel is holding in the stretch and about to pitch.

Next pitch is a seeing eye double.

As there is no other PBP...

Top 1:
Bogaerts grounds out quickly to 3rd
Pedroia walked on 4 straight
Benitendi grounds out after getting 2 balls to start the AB; infield unable to turn 2
Betts hits a bloop double over Gurriel after getting a BS time out allowed by HPU Hernandez
Ramirez grounds softly to 3rd, a slick pick and throw by Bregman gets him

0-1-0

Bot 1:

Springer rolls over a high curve to 2B
Bregman tips a lazy fly to RF
Altuve golfs one off the floor into LCF for a sharp single - insane hitting
Correa gets fucked around by Hernandez and then jumps on one he saw coming from last Tuesday and blasts it off the wall in LF
Gattis flies out to CF which was noisy only because people were still gasping at Correa's shot

BOS  0-1-0
HOU 2-2-0

Top 2:

Young smacks the first pitch into the corner by the boxes for an easy double - steals 3rd by a kilometre
Vazquez works the count to 2-0 and 3-1, then walks
Marrero (sporting a baby Keuchel beard) puts up a fight but gets ponched wailing at an inside cutter
For the record, Hernandez' strike zone is consistently inconsistent
Bradley Jr. works the count full, spoils a couple more pitches, then pokes one on the ground right up the middle
Young scores from 3rd, runners at 1st & 2nd, 1 out
Hernandez is going to cause a riot before this game is over

Bogaerts gets a called strike on a head-high pitch on his way to whiffing at that inside cutter
Pedroia falls behind 0-2, works it back to even, a goes down swinging at a curve in the dirt - give Angel the assist on that one

BOS 1-3-0
HOU 2-2-0

Keuchel struck out the side around 2 hits and a walk, giving up only 1 run.  Hernandez is a fucking disaster and is making it impossible to bat or pitch with any aplomb.

Bot 2:

Reddick pops up a 2-1 pitch to LCF
Gurriel takes a 4-pitch gambol to 1st
Gonzales falls behind 1-2 and then whiffs at a high curve (that Angel may or may not have called a strike)
McCann pops one up to the shortstop

BOS 1-3-0
HOU 2-2-0

Maybe Keuchel is settling in. Nice 1-2-3 inning.
He breezed him, one more time!

Top 3:

Keuchel starts the inning on 48 pitches
Benintendi (good name) lofts one a scoash shy of the track for Springer to pocket easily
Betts grounds on past Keuchel but Altuve deals with him
Ramirez shoulders his bat on a 3-2 pitch inside, off the plate, on which Angel theatrically rings him up

BOS 1-3-0
HOU 2-2-0

Nice quick inning that.

I am really appreciating Bregman on this team. Getting better as a hitter and there have been a few plays the last couple of days where his SS footwork  has come in handy at 3rd. Particularly on these extreme shifts where he moves towards the hole.

Bot 3:

Springer lofts a seemingly lazy fly to right...drifting....DRIFTIIIIIIIIIING...GONE!
3-0 Astros
Pomeranz seems a little rattled
Bregman Charlie Brown's one into CF for a pop-slide double
Pomeranz seems a lot rattled
Altuve plates Bregman with another hit off a shot-top curve - later gets to 2nd on a passed ball
4-0 Astros
Pomeranz replaced by Smith
Correa works the count full and checks his swing on one low and away to earn a stroll
Smith not finding the strike zone - either Angel's or the real one
Gattis walks on 4 straight to looad 'em up
Sox trying to get Price warm and just stalling at this point
Reddick slaps a liner at 3B where Marrero makes a diving catch, everyone stays safe on the bases
Nearly busted it wide open there
Smith makes way for Price
Gurriel hangs in against a combination of Price and Hernandez, works the count full but then pops up to SS
Gonzales pops up the first pitch to the catcher - shitfuck

BOS 1-3-0
HOU 4-5-1

2 runs scored, starter gone, but could have been SO.  MUCH.  MORE.

it's early in the postseason, Altuve has only begun to silence those who would make the comparison to players not named Altuve. In the postseason, EL Senor Octuve may only be judged by God, and may be compared only to earlier and later Altuves. It is known.

Top 4:

Young hits a routine liner to SS
Vazquez whiffs - stop me if you've heard this before - on an inside cutter
Keuchel's cutter is hot enough that I think I shall henceforth refer to it as a "Qatar"
Marrero whiffs to a Qatar

BOS 1-3-0
HOU 4-5-1

That was fast!  Keuchel's pitch count now looking much more appropriate.

I'm pretty sure you're right. Going into this I was just hoping that he wouldn't make Keuchel have to elevate to get a strike and that he'd be more or less equally terribe to both teams. So far, so good.

Bot 4:

Price still in
McCann drags one on the ground perfectly into the shift
Springer gets ahead 2-0 and hits a pop-fly double down the LF line that never even reaches the corner
Bregman grounds one to 2nd but a bobble nearly lets him beat the throw (he doesn't); Springer to 3rd
Altuve gets the respect of an IBB; Red Sox grinding; runners at the corners
Correa hits a routine pop-up to shallow RF that they almomst make a hash of

BOS 1-3-0
HOU 4-6-0

He's annoying to listen to and misinformed.  I literally did a confused dog head tilt when he referred to Yuli as "free-swinging."

He also said he played at Minute Maid Park in the '05 World Series and the roof was closed.  It should have been and thanks for rubbing that in, fuckhead.

So let me get this straight. Yesterday Chris Young doesn't play at all. Today he starts and promptly rakes a double into the gap and ends up scoring their only run to this point. Then in a crucial situation he gets replaced by a pinch hitter.

This is not a different Chris Young, right? This is the guy who has terrorized the Astros for years?

Marwin singles down the 3B line, the ball kicks sharply off the wall in foul territory to hold him to a single.

Moreland's always been a tough out against us.

Here are two other quick unscientific BoSox/Astros facts that I believe:

1) whoever is catching for them comes up big against us
2) we pitch well against Price.

He has very similar regular season stats to Derek Fisher.  Difference is we don't have to play Fisher in the hopes he gets hot and provides some offense.

He has very similar regular season stats to Derek Fisher.  Difference is we don't have to play Fisher in the hopes he gets hot and provides some offense.

If we hadn’t picked up Maybin, that’s exactly what we’d be doing against righthanders.

Baseball is fun!
In the end, my dissolution with the game of baseball will not be a result of any loss of love for the game, rather from the realization that I can no longer bear the anger its supposed stewards cause to be built up in my soul. -Lee (01/08/2013)

Yes. Wore my Astros hat.

The try-outs were happening on the concourse. The line wrapped around the stadium.

Just go to wherever the hell the Rowdies practice and grab the first fucker you see and be done with it, I mean, that was brutal.

Also, ignore me.  I was looking a different set of stats in regards to Devers this morning.  I confused a set of situational stats with his season stats.

So let me get this straight. Yesterday Chris Young doesn't play at all. Today he starts and promptly rakes a double into the gap and ends up scoring their only run to this point. Then in a crucial situation he gets replaced by a pinch hitter.

This is not a different Chris Young, right? This is the guy who has terrorized the Astros for years?

He was the injury replacement for Nunez, the real question is has the Boston braintrust never seen Chris Young play against Houston?  And if so, why was he left off the roster in the first place?  But to be fair, Marrero was they guy they took instead, and he made a heck of a play on Reddick today.
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

On the first pitch, Pedroia hits a weak grounder to third, Bregman tries to barehand but can't make the play.  Brock Holt pinch runs for him.

Seemed to hurt himself on one, too. Poor guy not having the best game.

BOT 8th - 8-1 Astros.  Kimbrel relieves Maddox - nice to not be facing him for the first time in a pressure situation.  Rajai Davis replaces Betts who tweaked his thumb during his last AB.  Correa-Gattis-Reddick due up

It was a good at bat by Maybin. Fouled off several before hitting that on the screws.

On another note, sure looks like a pretty obvious foreign substance on Kimbrel's hat. It glistens pretty nice when they show his facial close ups. I know most use something, I'm just saying....

Giles needs to bear down here.

Something about the score 8-1 and the name Giles...

He's annoying to listen to and misinformed.  I literally did a confused dog head tilt when he referred to Yuli as "free-swinging."

No kidding.  Yuli was exceptional at working the count, especially after two strikes, all game long, yesterday and during  a fair amount of the season this year.  Strange.
Another trenchant comment by a jealous lesser intellect.

Can you blame them? It's impossible to see the Astros on a national telecast. How would they know what this team looks like?

Yessir. There was a point in the game, too early, really, when they decided to show three or four sets of despondent Socks fans. Those two idiots behind you guys? Yeah. Them too. They were the last ones shown. It probably won't make the screen in the condensed game that Hap will watch tomorrow but Hap probably vaguely remembers what you two look like so all is not lost on that front.

What amused me was that while the guys behind you looked like they were suffering from an insistent case of the howlin' skitters you two were fixated on the game, eyes wide open, like two owls staring at a nest of rats.

Here you go.

My gosh, that is us. Wonder why the camera was there? We were very close to the swells Thursday so I thought we might be glimpsed on TV then.
The Sox fan behind us was cool. He was like a condemned man awaiting his fate at the firing squad. He told us the series will end Sunday. Hope he is right.

I’ll tell you, boys and girls, those were two fun days. Saw Neil and Leslie yesterday after seeing Geoff and Allison the day before, and some might be amused at the lengths to which Matt and I went to do everything Fri exactly the same as we did Thurs so as not to jinx anything. Sorry my baby boy missed this experience, but he was having fun too and caught the vaunting on TV.

I love this team. I love this season. Even if we go all the way, I will be sad to see it end. Thanks for posting the screenshot, chuck, but i’m Not sure I like your latest name for me.

Thanks for the explanation. I wondered. The guy with the beard did not utter a peep all day except for telling all of us Astrophiles around him he knew well which team was better. He was a good dude. I saw surprisingly few people in Sox gear, and for the most part, they accepted the butt-kicking quietly.

Yeah, the Red Sox fan behind us seemed like a decent fellow.  He accepted his team getting throttled graciously.  The Astros fan behind me was clueless.  He didn't know who was pitching for the Astros, even after they announced it and was told three times.  I'm not sure he paid any attention to the game at all, thought that didn't stop him from tying to impress with lady friend with his dumbassery.

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.
