Verlander getting the shit squeezed out of him this inning.

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

Granted JV has not been good enough this evening.

B2:

Adames flies out F7 on the first pitch
Meadows...full count...flies out F8
Pham...3-0...3-1...3-2...fouling off pitches...singles up the middle
Choi...3-2...walks, Pham to 2B
Garcia...0-2...strikes out swinging

3-0 Rays

These guys are hurting my feelings.  They are better than they are playing.  Baby Jesus help the Astros score some runs so they can start having fun again.  Please and amen.

Springer wasn't exactly top speed out of the box.

T3:

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

We can’t even get one past the pitcher’s mound.

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.

Pretty sure most of the hits have been on the slider.

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.

This team looks totally uninterested in playing baseball today. This is fucking pathetic.

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

Verlander pretty upset with Chirinos.

Verlander just was not ready to pitch today.
Short rest.  I'm sure it's different for a catcher.
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"
