I just finished saying a rosary and my prayer to St. Rita.  The rest is up to the men on the field.

Glasnow got off to an amazing start this year but his career numbers are pedestrian at best. Granted he is just 25.

Bregman stops on the way to the dugout to tip Correa off on something about Glasnow.

Bregman (or someone else) has picked out something that is giving away his pitches. He said "something something curveball, something top fastball".

And Correa has the first shitty Astro at bat of the night, taking two fastballs and wildly swinging at a curve that bounced.

B1:

Springer singles to LCF
Brantley...0 for his last 13...singles to LCF, Springer to 3B
Altuve singles to RCF, Springer scores, Brantley to 3B
Bregman doubles to RCF, Branltey scores, Altuve scores
Alvarez grounds out 6-3, Bregman to 3B
Gurriel singles to LF, Bregman scores
Correa...takes two strikes...1-2...strikes out swinging at a pitch that bounces in front of the plate
Reddick...quickly down 0-2...strikes out swinging

But the Astros put up a crooked number...lead 4-0

That doesn't seem smart.  It worked for the Astros, but against?

B5:

Roe in for the Rays

Maldonado pops out weakly F3 on the first pitch
Springer grounds out weakly 6-3

Roe out, Yarbrough in

Brantley...full up...walks

That's all for Yarbrough, Anderson in

Altuve pops to shallow RF on the first pitch

4-1 Astros

It's almost like the Astros have entirely forgotten the first inning, and putting together good at bats while swinging at hittable pitches.

Brantley managed to work a walk that inning, but the rest was extremely weak contact early in the count.

I have it on good authority that Sparks is not very smart.

However, it might have been Ford that said that. I still have trouble telling them apart.

@ESPNStatsInfo: In the 3rd inning, Gerrit Cole didn't record a strikeout.

Why is that significant?

Cole had recorded at least 1 strikeout in 73 consecutive innings (reg. and postseason) dating back to Aug. 1.

It was the longest such streak in the Expansion Era (since 1961)....by 33 innings.

For a team that thrived in the first inning of going after the ball and putting it in play, it seemed odd to watch Alvarez and Correa approach their ABs by taking fastballs down the middle.  Odd that.  Alavarez taken 3 meat pitches down central tonight.

Red Dawg with a knock!!!  Finally.
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.

Castillo in for the Rays

Correa...quickly down 0-2...1-2...2-2...strikes out swinging
Reddick with a Texas League single to CF
Tucker, steps in for Maldonado...

And Cash will counter...Castillo out, Poche in

Tucker...quickly down 0-2...strikes out swinging...good morning, good day, and good night

Poche out, Pagan in

Springer...taking strikes, swinging at slop...1-2...strikes out swinging trying to hit a 9-run home run

4-1 Astros

Well, he's not Dave Roberts, that's for sure.  Cash has to manage this way.  That's the way his team is built, and getting behind early meant he had to pull out all the stops at every stop.  It caught up with him.

B8:

Brantley homers to RF
Altuve homers to LCF
Bregman pops to shallow RF
Alvarez...3-0...walks

That's it for Pagan, McKay in

Gurriel flies out F7 in the deep cutout in LCF...Alvarez goes all the way to 2B and goes back to 1B...Rays challenging that he didn't retouch 2B...upheld...two outs
Correa...takes strike one at the ankles...1-1...1-2...strikes out on a half swing

To the 9th...Astros nursing a 6-1 lead

T9:

Osuna in to try to close it out...Marisnick in for Brantley into CF, Springer to RF, Reddick to LF

Meadows flies out F8
Pham...0-2...takes strike three for a ball...jeebus ump...flies out F9 in foul territory
Choi...1-2...PONCHE!!!!!!

And the Astros are movin' on!

6-1 is the final

Last game the Astros were down 4-1 and it felt like 40-1.  Tonight they're up 4-1 and it feels like they're down 4-1

Fitting end to punch him out.

And I can officially say that I actually really like Ji-Mann Choi. But man he was a fucking pest this series.

Also, JESUS FUCKING CHRIST, Joe Girardi is fucking horrendous in the broadcast booth. I hope some team hires him just to save the baseball loving world from having to live through that experience again. What a fucking slapdick.

The Rays’ strategy of using multiple pitchers in short stretches makes it tough on hitters. There’s a reason many starting pitchers struggle the third time through the batting order.  The hitters figure out the starter’s release point and can hit pitches that made them look silly earlier in the game.  When you see a new pitcher every inning, and they all have plus stuff, it’s a challenge to get comfortable in the box.

Who cares?  Let the media think what they want.  I believe the Astros are a great hitting team that has pummeled talented starting pitchers in the past.  This was also the third time they had seen Glasnow this season.

Also, apparently Cintron is the tipping savant.

Judging just from the camera cut of him yelling at Maldonado in the 7th or 8th, I'd say that is a fair statement.

Glasnow said in the postgame that once he reviewed the video it was obvious that he was tipping. He wouldn't share the details.

Also, apparently Cintron is the tipping savant.

Dan Plesac on MLB Network gave a good breakdown.  Glasnow was holding his glove much higher when he would throw a fastball than he would when throwing his curveball.  It was a stark difference and an easy tell.
Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.

Judging just from the camera cut of him yelling at Maldonado in the 7th or 8th, I'd say that is a fair statement.

They showed him in a very animated conversation with Chirinos as well.
Oye. Vamos, vamos.

He must have stopped after the first inning.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

The narrative is out there,  and there's no stopping it.

Just like with Kimbrel last year.

People act like it's batting practice if a guy tips.

Exactly right. I posted on this issue in the TZ.

Re tipped pitches: supposedly Glasnow was getting thousands of texts that he was dropping his hands when throwing the curve.  Fox showed the Astros hitters talking to each other as they cane to the plate.  Twitter showed Glasnow taking his grip with his arm by his side. 

Bottom line(s):  the Astros weren’t cheating and, as pointed out by the Rays’ coach, they still have to hit it even if they know what’s coming. 
Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.

Didn’t help Carlos at all. I think he stared at two meaty fastballs, layed off one curve and swang at the next one in the dirt.

Learning pitches from mannerisms is not cheating.

Did Cintron discover the tell from video, prior to the game? Or did he catch it in the lead off Springer at bat?
Lighten up, Francis.

Total silence at my house...except when I talked to myself or to my dog.

trust me....you and your do would have been better than this crew. And PBP was actually ok. The two analysts acted like they were there for reasons other than analyzing what was happening on the field.

FWIW: https://mlb.nbcsports.com/2019/10/10/former-major-leaguers-think-tyler-glasnow-was-tipping-his-pitches/

Trevor Plouffe, who re-signed with the Phillies on a minor league contract for the 2019 season, responded to Frandsen, “I had his pitches this Spring Training. Every one of em and it only took an inning.”

Jayson Stark in The Athletic:

Quote
Gerrit Cole is 18-0 in those five freaking months. Yeah, 18 and 0! If you’re thinking that seems like a lot of games to win in a row, let’s just say you’re on the right track. According to STATS LLC, to find the last pitcher who won that many games in a row within a single season, you would have to go back 107 years – to 1912, when Rube Marquard spun off 19 in a row for John McGraw’s New York Giants. We’d cue up the Rube Marquard videotape now, except that was like six decades before the invention of videotape.

ETA: not sorry if Cabrera'd.

Joe Smith to Sparks: ‘You’re having more fun than half the room.’

Sparks screaming at Harris "you're skanky" and "your wife loves money" as Harris cheerily replied "she loves winning and being a party of this thing."

Somehow I was not aware that Brandon Crawford is Garrett Cole's brother in law.
"Holy shit, Mozart. Get me off this fucking thing."
