With that last replay - how in the hell did the ump call him safe in the first place?  He was right on top of it.

Two words...Fuckin New York Yankees.
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.

How many times do you see it - guy makes a great play and comes up third in the bottom of the inning.

 roughly 33.3% of the time

There was so much that had to go right to make that play.  It's no wonder they sent Gardner.

True, and the Astros executed but didn't do so flawlessly. Reddick's throw caused Correa's momentum to drift towards the first base side, which pulled his throw a couple feet off the bag. I'm not bagging on the  Astros' play, just saying that Gardner would have been toast if the relay went off without a hitch. The 3B coach should have held him at 2nd

I know this was a big thing in 2005, too, but I will never understand closing the roof during good weather (I don't know what the weather is in Houston today).

Think hell with humidity.  Fall arrives Monday though, so I hear.

I thought the quick throw by Reddick was key, if he took the time to make a perfect throw they probably wouldn't have got it to third in time.

Yup, with Ariza and Fertitta the Younger and Elder.

But, I'm thankful he unnecessarily attempted to stretch a double into a triple with two outs.

Wasn’t going all out from 1st to 2nd, so he deserved that.

Runs, score them. Por favor Astros
There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese.

It does. Here in DC too.
Another trenchant comment by a jealous lesser intellect.

Harden showed up.  Maybe he was at the diamond club bar.
