Blake Snell's longest outing in September was 2.1 innings.  Tyler Glasnow's was 4.1.

-The Rays won four out of seven games against Houston in 2019.
 -The Astros outscored the Rays 40-27 in 2019.
 -Tampa won three of those four games to open the 2019 season.
 -The Astros scored nine runs in those four games, and scored four runs in the last three games of that opening series combined.
 -The second HOU/TBR series was Aug 27-29. Houston won 15-1, won 8-6, and lost 9-8.
 -The Astros are 5-12 at Tropicana Field since the beginning of the 2015 season. They're 2-6 in 2018-2019.

Buckle up, folks. Tampa is a good baseball team. Their bullpen is purportedly one of the best in MLs so getting runs early is key.

We probably should forfeit.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

No doubt. I've made plans to travel outside the country where there is no baseball or even t.v.

I'd like to think it'll be 2017 all over again, when the Astros were warned before all three series the it was crucial they score early because their opponent possessed a shutdown bullpen.  The Astros proceeded to shred all three bullpens, including the three vaunted closers.

And Reddick is a dad. Maverick Joshua Reddick and Ryder Blaze Reddick were born yesterday.

Great news for both Correa and Reddick!

Seriously?  You name one of them "Maverick" and the other one something other than "Goose"?
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.

I was thinking Cheyenne to go along with Maverick. Or Gunsmoke.

I have a friend that used this description:

As luck would have it, my company is upgrading its IT this weekend, and so we're shut down for the day.  I will be at Johnny McIlroy's watching the game if anyone cares to join me.

Point of order:  wear my WS Game #7 shirt, or save that powerful juju for later?

I have the same outfit I wore to all home games in the 2017 post season.  I did include a Springer jersey today.  I even have the same necklace on.

I'll be at game 3. Not sure what I'm going to wear but whatever it is, I hope it has good Greinke mojo.
