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.

Joe Girardi has rocketed past Joe Buck as my least favorite sports commentator. Holy fuck, he just doesn't shut up. It's like he's a robot designed to fill silence with useless information.

The Astros have taken a bunch of hittable pitches this inning.

T1:

Springer...takes strike one...takes strike two...ball outside...singles to RF against the shift
Brantley strikes out looking
Altuve...0-2...fouling off pitches out of the zone...strikes out swinging at ball five at his back foot.
Bregman strikes out swinging

No score

And swung at slop.  Not a good start.

This fucking guy has thrown THREE spinning breaking balls center in, and the Astros have swung at zero of them.

But Altuve swung at a pitch that was probably going to hit him to strike out, so we've got that going for us, so that's nice.

And Bregman swings through a spinner at the top of the zone.

Fucking beautiful.

So far in 1 game + 1 inning, the Rays are murdering every single mistake pitch the Astros make.

And the Astros are taking those pitches.

Also, Astros hitters... This is what happens when you actually swing at strikes.

Well, the hitters have to win this one.  Assuming the Rays wouldn't score would be stupid.
