Devo AND Peacock out surprises me.  That's some serious reliever experience missing from the team.
Another trenchant comment by a jealous lesser intellect.

Neither one is pitching particularly well at this time.

Neither is Miley and he's coming out of the pen. Anyone know if he's done that before?

That was kind of my point.  Starter/reliever mindset and pitching style is just so different.  Even with Peacock and Devo struggling a bit, they know the plan.  Miley, not so much.  Maybe he'll be a pleasant surprise.

I am wondering if the plan is to start Miley in Game 4 then flip to Urquidy if Miley starts to implode again.  And just hope that James, Rondon and Smith can fill the gaps in any pre-7th inning relief work that is necessary.

I could see that if it's 2-1 Astros, of course. Verlander on 3-days rest if it's elimination.

FWIW, I'm going with a generic Astros shirt today.  Saving my Game #7 shirt for must-win games.

That FS1 pregame show was hideous. Truth be told,  I only saw the last segment but it was almost impossible to endure.
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show

My wife and I have both lost a lot of weight this year, and we can fit into our old Larry Dierker Hawaiian shirts. So we're going old-school.

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.

when Millie our 9 year old ragdoll rescue cat laid on the couch today it was a good omen as she has a history of laying in the same place during play off games.

Had to look on the map to find Todd Mission, that's a new one for me.
