The rules are a little different these days.

First thing I thought when I saw it: now what exactly does the Posey rule say?

Second thing was that I hope someone punched Joc Pederson

Yesterday Gattis achieved his career high with 5 rbi.

Tonight,  a sac fly, a 3 run dinger and a solo shot give him another 5 rbi might.

See ball. Smash ball.  Oso blanco esta en fuego.

Btw he's the first Astro to record consecutive 5 rbi games.

Quite the turnaround for Captain Caveman since April.  Went from a DFA candidate to arguably the hottest hitter in the lineup.
Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.

Jake looks real good in the field tonight.

Jake saves Guduan's bacon in the 8th, turning a HR into an 8-4-3 double play.

Reymin's eighth inning was a little shakey, but his ninth was a guduan.
He breezed him, one more time!

On that note,  good night/morning.

DFA Gattis

Correa has the yips

Put Keuchel in the pen

Once Keuchel turns it around who’s next? Just want to be prepared....

Altuve. Fucking enanito hasn't had a hit in three or four days.
I really believe I’d run in there even if I didn’t have a weapon.

'17 Reddick.  McCann after that.  Then Peacock's slider.

You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

Eh, not sure what the point is  Seems like premature gloating/I told you so.  Sure, anyone who said that Gattis should be released was wrong,  Correa did have the yips and might still in the future, and last time I saw DK, he looked pretty bad.

Yes. I am late on this one but I do want to put on record my admission of foolishness with respect to Gattis and officially recant.

Then hits one.

Some insights from the A's broadcast during the 9th inning last night:

...when Smolinski pitched the 9th, he became the 1st position player to ever pitch in a home game for Oakland.

...while the guys were ticked @ Marisnick's first pitch HR off Smolinski, shey shared that prior to last night's game the Astros were leading the league with seven 1st pitch HR during the last two weeks.  "That's the way they do business."

...they joked that there would probably be a small brawl at the bat rack during the 9th.
“I just pitched the best game of baseball I ever pitched in my whole life — how could I possibly be unhappy?”

Where were we wrong?  We wanted some bags. Kemp came up when Jake went down.  JD for Fisher.  Those two helped. 2 out 3 is pretty good.  And if you think the bullpen doesn't need help you might want to watch the games.  I'm glad Evan may have turned it around, he needed to turn it around.

Nothing wrong with fans wanting the team to perform better.  It's hard to let go of expectations they set in 2017.
