I think Smoltz is actually on to something. Think about how many times this year the Astros did nothing through the first few innings and then destroyed the pitching in the 5th or 6th innings after they had seen the stuff a bit. With the way Boone is handling his staff (and same for Cash in the last series), they're simply not getting that third time around against the same pitcher.

Exactly. This is not hard to figure out.

But, they will get to a third time if they are used that much in relief....

They just need to see the ball and hit the ball.  It's simple, right?

I don't know if it's simple. Probably not but seeing the ball well against a different guy each time is probably really hard.

Meanwhile...7.2IP, 3H/2ER, 11K:4BB Yankee pen this series
                      4.2IP, 1H/0ER, 5K:2BB.   Astros pen this series. 
Our guys are holding their own very nicely.

The pen was great last night but they gave up four runs in three innings in game one.

Video of Ford's call of Correa's game winner

Quote
(Correa's view) ....When it hit [Altuve] and I saw the ball go my way, I just went after it. And I grabbed it and when I looked up and I saw [third base coach Phil Nevin] was sending the runner, I thought, ‘Oh, I got this guy.’ So I threw him out. I don’t know why he sent him, but, thank you.”
Nothing worthwhile comes without pain, ask any Astros fan.

that's great. Makes Sparks look like the calm one by comparison.

He almost missed calling it because they were discussing Sanchez and the phantom foul tip

Just want to say sorry about the Saturday night Correa - useless comment ---- not useless at all --- thanks.

never so glad to be wrong

Beyond awesome. SIamming  his fist down in the air - I haven't seen anything that great in a long time. 

I can't understand what he is saying. Is there a transcript anywhere?

Here's the actual radio call. Much clearer.

I saw something today where Sanchez is still claiming he fouled off that pitch, and that the Yankees got royally fucked in that game.  I know no one needs another excuse to hate those fuckers, but...
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.

He came as close to fouling off that pitch as I came to making the Astros roster.

I think you're selling yourself a little short there.

He missed it by so much that there really wasn't any need for slow motion to tell.

Gary Sanchez is a cocksucker, which definitely isn't news.

Much obliged. From now on when I listen to the radio broadcast, I will have this image in mind.
Its funny that Sparks doesn't seem to react at all. It looks like he his filling in his score book.
