Weak ass rollover after weak ass rollover. Offense is a fucking disgrace tonight.
He breezed him, one more time!

Baseball savant says we have a 1.5 percent chance to win this game. I think that's wildly optimistic.

Wasted a ballsy outing by Greinke.
Yeah, he was good enough to win with a little offense.

Painful to watch. Tomorrow is must win. And this is a team looking defeated already.

I figured there was a good chance they would lose this game, but I thought they would at least make it interesting. I'm really concerned that the offense is going to take the rest of the month off. They've had one good inning in six postseason games.
I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy

3 over 6 innings is a solid day against their offense.

But when your bats are in the deep freeze, a shutout is the only thing that works.

Fucking embarrassing.

100% this.

This team's offense is supposed to be historic. Instead they're historically embarrassing in the playoffs.

Even a shutout doesn't do much when your team doesn't score

Top 8, James pitches to

Stanton - quickly 0-2,  This ump is nothing if inconsistent.. ball 1 on the outside black..  there we go.  Strike 3.   1 out
Gardner - inside ball 1, ball 2 inside and down, grounds to Altuve.. 4-3.. 2 out.
Sanchez - breaking ball high, ball 1, fastball high ball 2, strike 1 called at the top of the zone,  98 down the pipe strike 2,  99 on the outside black gets him swinging!   3 outs.

This James kid is pretty good..

Astros 0, Yanks 5

A couple things -

1.  We are better when we are aggressive (any pitch, any count type of readiness)
2.  We need to go to opposite field better (Brantley drove one right at Stanton) and Bregs once but the Chirinos DP is stupid
3.  Who the fuck cares about pitch count when it comes to their starting pitchers --- their strength is their bullpen (claimed to be)
      So lets get after them on mistakes
4.  Would not hurt to get on base more (shit I'd take a bunt from Chirinos or a strike out there; anything but weak sis to 3rd for 2)
     Hit em where they aint.

While the announcers were blowing every member of the Yankees bullpen, James has a great inning.

Let him bat.

The rest are pretending, they put on a show

Agreed. Greinke did fine. This offense better wake up soon.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

My current predection is this series ends 4-1 Yankees.

The Astro offense is garbage at best.

There’s a shaved gorilla vibe to a lot of the Yankees.  Britton and Gardner to name two. 
Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.
