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.

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.

B1:

Meadows...0-2...strikes out swinging
Pham homers to LCF...on a 2-strike hanging changeup right down the pipe, of course
Choi...full count...walks
Garcia singles to LF, Choi to 2B
Lowe pops out to shallow LF
d'Arnaud with a soft grounder past Bregman into LF, Choi scores, Garcia to 2B
Wendle doubles to RF, Garcia scores, d'Arnaud to 3B
Kiermaier strikes out swinging

But the Rays jump all over JV...lead 3-0 after one

I'm thinking about the umpires union and MLB execs who were upset at JV's comments about a juiced ball right about now.

I'm thinking about the umpires union and MLB execs who were upset at JV's comments about a juiced ball right about now.

Chirinos flies out F9
Springer taps back to the mound on the first pitch...pitcher bobbles it, but Springer jogging down the line and the throw just nips him
Brantley taps back the mound

3-0 Rays

So this lineup change has put all your black holes together...Reddick, Chirinos Springer, and Brantley.  The Astros have no chance to win this series unless these guys wake up.

You know, Verlander might be pitching better if his team could get some hits.  Must suck to feel as though you can't pitch without making a mistake. 

And right now, I blame this offense way more than Verlander.  At least he is trying.

Where is the MVP when needed?  Altuve and Bregman get on and Alvarez can finally hit a homerun and get out of his funk.  Did that funk start when Jim R went to Europe.  Maybe Jim needs to make sure Alvarez knows he is watching??

Home run was a changeup.  But he's definitely fallen in love with the slider, which he has no feel for.

And not spotting the FB.

You’re right, just the last 3 hits were on sliders. Others were changeup, fastball, and curveball.

Kiermaier is as good as there is in CF.  He played that perfectly, and Adames made a perfect relay throw.

So...there is at least one reason to hate the Rays.  Willy Adames.  And not because he's good.

B4:

Adames homers to LCF
Meadows strikes out swinging
Pham flies out F7
Choi...0-2...1-2...2-2...3-2...walks

That's all for Verlander, James in

Garcia with an infield single up the middle...nice effort by Correa on the 9-bouncer, but no chance...Choi to 2B
Lowe...0-2...takes strike three for a ball...strikes out swinging

4-0 Rays

Correa flies out F9
Reddick flies out F7
Chirinos...3-2...not a strike thrown yet...takes a meatball right down the center.

4-0 Rays

Chirinos swings at a pitch that bounces in front of the plate, then one over his head...takes a fastball right down the center.

Chirinos works the count 3-1 then swings at a pitch around his eyes.

Then takes a fastball that catches a ton of the zone for strike 3.

What the FUCK!?

How about ONE inning where the Astros put together more than one good at bat!?

Fucking trash baseball.

Here's what we need:

1.  1 run in the 7th - to remind ourselves what this feels like (scoring a run)
2.  2 run dong in 8th Alvarez or Yuli (get within a run)
3.  Game tying steal of home in the top of the 9th by Straw
4.  Game goes to the 15th inning and we get a walkoff from Ted

I for one am not too optimistic about the Astros winning on Thursday either.  Today was the day.  They'd rather be somewhere else.

I still am not sure they will have to play Thursday.
It's my estimation that every man ever got a statue made of 'em was one kinda sombitch or another.

There hustle/effort-- Springer not hustling down the line.  That's not his MO, and I don't think lollygagging is an issue.

Then there's getting led by the nose thru every AB.  That's what drives me crazy thru these stretches.

Then there's 3 hard hit balls all turning into outs.

Remember this:

1.  Nothing is ever easy with the Houston Astros in the post-season
2.  We still have 9 outs
3.  Past does not necessarily predict future outcomes
4.  See #1

*** we can do this.  Its only 4 fucking runs (at present in the 6 inning with one out and two on) .

JVs performance was a nut punch,  but realistically I was hoping to get to the 6th with them having 3 runs.  Hoping the Astros would have more than zero,  of course.

So let's put some fucking ABs together and see what happens.

They led the AL in ERA, OPS, and basically finished 1 or 2 with the Astros in most categories.

Yes.  I was just annoyed at the thought of someone enjoying this.

T7:

Poche in for the Rays

Bregman pops up to shallow RF...that's three popups tonight
Alvarez...dives back from one at his head on the first pitch...2-0...swinging through a meatball...swings though another meatball...takes a meatball for strike three
Gurriel flies out F9

At the stretch...4-0 Rays

Smith in for the Astros

Wendle pops up the first pitch right behind the plate, Chirinos catches it...but it hits the catwalk...dead ball...flies out F8 on the next pitch
Kiermaier flies out F7 on the first pitch
Adames flies out F9

6-pitch inning for Smith...first clean inning of the night for the Astros...Rays up 4-0

Four hits - two from Springer and one each from Altuve and Alvarez. Gonna need a rally. I’m hoping for an Astros win in extra innings.

Correa with an excuse me swing groundout 4-3
Diaz, pinch hitting for Reddick, strikes out swinging...completely overmatched
Chirinos homers to RCF

That's it for Poche, Pagan in

Springer flies out F8

4-1 Rays

Choi...shiftfuck single ground ball to 2B...hit it through the shift, but it's an easy out in normal position
Garcia singles to LF, Choi to 2B
Lowe...0-2...1-2...strikes out swinging

To the 9th...Astros chasing three runs...

Imagine Snell will come in to face Alvarez if he comes up.
Good call!!!
Nothing worthwhile comes without pain, ask any Astros fan.

Alvarez does not handle the high fastball well.
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.

Strike 1 should have been bombed.

Instead he flails at a worm burner to strike out.

T9:

Brantley takes a cookie for strike one...foul...quickly down 0-2...flies out F7 at the track
Altuve...works the count full...walks
Bregman singles to LCF, Altuve to 3B

Pagan out, Snell in

Alvarez strikes out swinging at a pitch that bounces...putrid at bat
Gurriel...takes a meatball for strike one...foul...quickly down 0-2...1-2 as Bregman takes 2B...grounds out 4-3

On to game 5

Offense better wake the fuck up for Game 5, because the shitty fucking effort tonight isn't going to win many games.

Other than the one Chirinos hit out.

But if the Rays don’t cut down Altuve, then Alvarez and Yuli are trying to single in the tying run instead of homering it in. Big difference.

Alvarez never stood a chance against Snell.  Yuli hit the ball well, but the Rays were in the right spot.

Brantley...Gurriel...Correa...Reddick...time to reach down and find a pair before Thursday because you're getting another dose of what you got tonight from the Rays.

Brantley at least hit two balls hard.

Moral victories ain't gonna be enough.  They've dicktepped themselves into an elimination game.  Results matter now.

Game #1:  Comfortable home win delivered by lock-down pitching and solid run support
Game #2:  Squeaky home win behind lock-down pitching and barely enough run support
Game #3:  Comfortable home win delivered by lock-down pitching and solid run support
Game #4:  Squeaky home win behind lock-down pitching and barely enough run support
Game #5:  🤷‍♂️

As much as we fans like to think we make a difference, we don't get to play.  Unfortunately, I did not make the postseason roster, though I'm certain I'd be hitting as well as Josh Reddick.

They were in the right spots all night. When Choi is a defensive wizard, you know it is not your night.
