Vaunting must return.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

Don't think twice, it's alright.

We really need the Good Guys to come right out in the first inning and hang a crooked number on the Yanks.  Then we need to do the same thing again in the 2nd or 3rd inning.  After that we just hope our pitching can make it stick.  Ready for the game.  Go Stros!

I thought a DH hitting 7th was sad, until I saw where they have Hedy.  Sanchez batting 3rd is interesting, given a 4 for 23 post-season average.

Need Keuchel to be at his witchy best this afternoon.

I'm back in Texas! Ready for some overdue vaunting.
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show

Here's hoping that it's the south side of the north-south divide that has the joy today.  I want us to be in the joy division.

I'm shocked that Big Poopie is calling for a Yankees victory.

I expect shadows to be a factor for the first 2-3 innings.

Enormous pressure on Keuchel - no hitting; no bullpen. He must feel like he is taking on the Yaankees single handedly.
E come vivo? Vivo.

Funny that you said that...I was just hexing a little origami doll of Mr. Tanka while singing "she's lost control" to it. RIP I.C.

Pettitte just threw out the first pitch in a Yankmees jacket.
He's dead to me.
