ARod showing off his Yankee World Series ring, root, root, rooting for them.  Way to be objective.

As long as they don't give him back to back fastballs in the happy zone they'll be fine

High and inside is not the hole in Judge's swing.  I hope Harris goes back to sleep.

Game 3's opener at least mentioned the Astros. Today's whoever-the-rapper-reading-cuecards-is didn't even say Houston or Astros, let alone talk about them.

Fuck Fox and their pathetic inability to even TRY to be balanced.

Would be more concerned if he hit something off the outer corners.  I was more concerned about the ump not calling strikes at his knees.

Pitching a lot more tentatively to Altuve and Correa.  It's like they're the only ones hitting in the lineup or something.

Correa saw 6 pitches, none of them strikes after a four pitch walk

No score.

Gray threw the last 10 pitches out of the zone and got the final out.

Early returns......Astros hitters reaching and trying to pull everything on the outside corner at the knees. Will be a long day if they don't stop that.

Gray hit the bottom of the zone to Reddick, but couldn't get anywhere near it after that.  Correa bailed him out big time.

McCullers is so fidgety. I noticed last outing that he was constantly adjusting his pant leg at his ankles between every single pitch. Tonight it's the jersey and chain.

George promptly rolled over a fat fastball.

Hey Astros, take notes. Not rolling over on slop will lead to things other than ground balls to the short stop. Some of them might even fall in for hits when you don't hit them well.

More than mildly concerned this will be McCullers' meltdown inning.

Replay clearly shows that Judge did not re-touch 2B though he made it back to 1B...will probably have a double replay.

HH,

Judge slides into first,  is tagged.   Is that tag enough to get the out for not retouching or is the rule that the defense must do the appeal/ force play thing before the next pitch?

Yeah but I mean after he got to second on the appeal throw.  But evidently not.

Also it looked to me like judge's foot pushed yuli's foot into the bag regardless of the tag.

Back to the top of the order.  I hope they’ve learned something from the prior futile flailing.  Got to hit Gray hard and early to get something on the board as he’ll have the shortest of leashes.

Yes. It is there for the taking. Not far from the parade of their relievers though.

Can we choose to face Chapman for 3-4 innings?
