They need to stop swinging at that slop off the plate.
...and start swinging at the slop over the middle of the plate.
He breezed him, one more time!

Upon reflection, I am not surprised Greinke's zone is a bit less consistent than Tanaka's. He changes speed more and throws weirder pitches. Tanaka's kind of a basic bitch.

Veins bulged on the phallus due to its indignation a breaking ball over the plate was called a strike.

Good afternoon, good evening and goodnight.

I'm feeling pessimistic about the team's offense tonight. I knew that when the count on Altuve went to 3-2 he'd strike out on a ball off the plate.

Yet for some reason I'm optimistic about Tucker tonight.

Tanaka is not expected to go much more than 5, then we get the pen.

With the way Tanaka pitches, the Astro’ hitters need to think backwards and do a better job of spitting on Tanaka’s junk out of the strike zone.  He’s not going to throw them many fastballs.

It's hard to believe you screw up a movie on the battle of Midway, but it looks like someone is trying.

Has anybody really tried to take Tanaka the other way tonight?

I'm watching the Spanish broadcast (muted with Ford and Sparks synced up) and their graphics are in English.
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show

I wonder if they're going to talk about how the code-breaking factored in. In the middle of his extraordinary historical novel War and Remembrance, Herman Wouk interrupted the narrative to memorialize the pilots who--he thought at the time--just "happened" on the Japanese fleet after a desperate search.

They fucked up Pearl Harbor.  On a related note, Hanks and Spielberg are doing another WWII series, this one's about the Allied air war over Germany.

So I got Germans and Pearl Harbor into this same post, which has to be some sort of omen.

Bergman laid off the outside pitch up in the zone on 3-2 that felled Altuve
