T1:

Diaz chops into the 6.5 hole, Correa with a backhand and spectacular throw to nip the diving Diaz...6-3
Meadows...0-2...1-2...fouling off pitches...2-2...strikes out swinging
Pham...who is 9 for 18 against Cole...works the count full...singles to RF...now 10 for 19
Choi...0-2...1-2...strikes out swinging

No score

Absoulutely.  Of course, I have personal reasons, but if not for the Astros, I'd easily be a Rays fan.

The worst thing about the Rays is that they're the opponent.

They have no payroll, no fans, the worst stadium in North American professional sports, I mean, the fuck are they doing over there? There is no universe in which they should be any good, ever.

I liked the old days when the Astros were my NL team and the Rays were my AL team.  No question which team is number one for me but I am glad they don't play in the same division.

Well they're swinging at FBs.

Popping them up, but swinging.

These guys have somehow put together a really, really, really good team.

And here's another thing - they're not really unlikable in any way, unlike most of the other teams still playing.
Really impressive what they did with their pitching staff with Snell and Glasnow missing a huge chunk of the season.
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

If the Rays stay good and the Jays get good I will not be terribly upset.

And if the O's can... ahh, who am I kidding?

If only they could hear Pierzinski, they’d be winning by now.

It was going to be that first FB or nothing for Correa.

It was nothing.

He needs 30 more at bats before he's ready to hit in a big league game.  His defense, however...
