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.

We're spared from Buck tonight.

Hudson and Hicks in the GZ tonight.
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

I will be in and out.  Have conference calls from 9-midnight.  And making soup for Mrs. Hawk.  Tonight will be a grind.

Due to my usual state of being gripped with fear of losing, it was somewhat of a shock to hear Smoltz talking about how the Yankees must win at least one of these games just to get back to Houston.  I hope they will be pressing like fuck tonight because they won’t want to face JV tomorrow needing to win to stay alive. 

I hope Greinke can keep them quiet for a while to ramp up the pressure.  I also hope that the Astros will wait on Tanaka and take him the other way (NTTAWWTJ to give Zack something to work with.

I’m Hudson, sir.  He’s Hicks.

Oh look!   An Astro trying to pull Tanaka and making an out.

The ball really seemed to carry to RF even with weak contact off Altuve’s bat.

Nice job, Brantley.  Let’s work this slop-throwing scrub and get into their bullpen.

T1:

Springer...who is hitting .083 this series...lines out to SS in the shift.  Robbed.
Altuve flies out to RF...one handed half swing went almost to the track
Brantley...takes two floating meatballs down the center...evens the count at 2-2...works it full...fouling off pitches...walks
Bregman takes strike one four inches off the plate...pops up F6

No score

I’ll give you the first pitch but pitch 2 was a strike.
