2004 Beltran vs 2017 Altuve. Discuss.

Both incandescent at the plate but for me CF is so much more critical a defensive position.

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.

For those of you at the game or unable to watch who may be wondering what percentage of the strikes called are actually strikes, I'd say about half of them.

I've always believed you to be a man of a generous nature, but...wow.  I'm guessing it's closer to about 30%.

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.

He’s counting the swinging strikes.

Wasn't due to lack of effort.

The Astros Strike Zone twitter account shows 5 pitches which helped the Astros and 1 which helped the Sox, but I'm pretty sure it missed a pitch or two during the Yuli at-bat.

Two for sure during the Yuli AB.

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.

That seemed like a huge inning by Keuchel. Can't let those fuckers feel like the're in it.

In case anyone is interested, Angel Hernandez is trending on Twitter.  Probably because of things like this:
