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.

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

Time for Bregman to return to form.   He was so solid the second half.

And Springer might want to pounce on a first pitch FB if they're gonna freaking groove them.

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.

So they just described Judge as "a matinee idol who has earned the adoration of the masses."

Well that settles that.

Thomas, Hernandez, Ortiz, and A-rod all predict a Yankee win.  I hope the Astros get that win, not that it will shut any of their biased pie holes up.

Good to see Meals has a strike zone for the Yankee hitters and one for Astros hitters. Unsurprisingly, the Yankees one is about 4 inches wider across.

Yes, but he has trouble driving in runs.  I get that someone has to DH.  But you don't have to hit them in an RBI spot.

So, runner on second and he scores.

Hmm, of course, Keuchel is going to need runs today.   This team seems to be playing so tense they don't look like themselves.

Their 2 out double scores while our lead off double is stranded.

don't forget there were two outs versus none for us.

Maybe tip off the Astros hitters that Tanaka is going to throw around the bottom of the zone mostly, and to wait back and crush it...

The other best team in Astros history, the 1998, saw their incredible offense fall off the cliff in the playoffs. It happens, particularly with younger players. Dallas is not going to be able to shut down the Yankees by himself, particularly with this ump.

Marwin lobbed that ball back to the infield and they just missed Gardner at the plate.

Both teams are gonna be aggressive here. The outfielders can't assume the runner is gonna stop at 3rd

Altuve's average dropped to .313 after his last at bat. This is higher than Beltran, McCann, Springer, and Reddick's combined. WTF?

Our vaunted offense needs a quick meeting in the tunnel that goes something like this:

Correa: we gotta pull our heads out of our collective asses and get some runs now.

Altuve: ok, let's do it!

Correa is one of the guiltiest of all.

Bases juiced in Game 3 with a chance to get back in the game and he never even makes contact, and it's gotten worse from there.

These guys have been kicking your nuts for 3 straight days. Fight back!  Hit that round thing hard and run around the bases, then do it again.

This isn't The second coming on the mound.

I'm just paraphrasing their convo before their game 2 walkoff.  This whole lineup has been guilty AF

Just down two runs, and although the Astros haven't hit much this series, what hitting they have done has been against the bullpen.

I don't think it will take much to shake off the funk and start the vauntin', I just hope they hurry up.

Finally.  A hit from Marwin.  How about a McCannonball.

Someone called him McShitCann early this year, I stil laugh when I think of it.

Is it me? But in that moment, if I watch the fattest most hittable pitch into the catchers glove, I'm breaking my bat or destroying part of the dugout. Springer didn't seem to be the least bit concerned, chewing his bubble gum.

The next inning for the Astros is going to be key.  They have to score with Altuve/Correa/Gurriel/Bregman. 

Needless to say, Dallas needs to be perfect.

Overall, the ball-strike calls have been abysmal all season. I dream of a game where consistency in the strike zone is a reality not only within a game, which is hard enough for these guys, but throughout all games everywhere in MLB.

Harris went from All-Star to far end of the bullpen pretty quick. Wonder if he is healthy. Wonder if he will be back. They need to do some serious reworking of the pen this winter.

Well if they were going to lay down like this, it would have been better if they had just done it against the Red Sox, when we would have somewhat accepted that they simply had stumbled down the stretch and that the first half Astros were just an apparition.  I know there are 2 possible home games to win, but these Yankees have all the momentum and will likely steamroll their way to LA

Why the fuck was Reddick shaking his head on the called strike?  That was clearly a strike, right?

Verlander can make the start of his life (again), but if they don't start swinging the bats . . .

He's got to be wondering what the fuck he got himself into at this point.
Unless something changes in Game 6/7, this has to be one of the worst offensive performances in postseason history. Adjusted for context it might be the very worst, as the only comparable events I can think of happened in the dead ball era or 1960's (Dodgers in 1966 World Series, etc.).
When the Clark is dead, Spack will eat his spleen. Before he dies, Spack will put his posts under the knife so the Clark will see his threads wiped out forever...

I'm pretty sure he knows he got himself into the fucking American League Championship Series, with a chance to pitch his team to the fucking World Series.  Something that was not possible in his previous situation.
