Cole gave up 5 runs for the first time since May 22nd.

If it happened last night, the Astros win that game.

Just got some last minute it handed too me, 438.    Lets even this series up!!
There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese.

That was a foregone conclusion, no?

On a side note, one of my co-worker's best friend is Sanchez's wife.  She's going to the game tonight, but was told she couldn't sit in the players family section unless she wore red.  So she did.

Welp.  Looks like the Astros are out off the news cycle.  An Ump just tweeted out if Trump gets impeached he is buying an AR15 and there will be a civil war

Major league umpire Rob Drake tweeted “I will be buying an AR-15 tomorrow, because if you impeach MY PRESIDENT this way, YOU WILL HAVE ANOTHER CIVAL WAR!!! #MAGA2020”, according to a copy of the tweet obtained by ESPN. MLB says it is aware of it. News:

Maybe after last night, but I had seen a lot of prior discussion that it would be Corbin in G3, Sanchez in G4.

So i just learned that the nats stadium is a no wave zone. Gotta give’em credit for that.

I’m going to try really, really hard to hate this Nationals team but, even over 7 games, I’m not sure I’m going to succeed.  They’re the reincarnation of the 2017 Astros, and anyone who could bring themselves to hate that team was a dick. 

I still want them to lose in 5, but they’re a fun team to watch, presumably, for those who don’t want them to die like dogs.  (See?   I’m really trying). 

I suspect that we'll hate Soto for one reason or another before it's all over.

But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy

Call me crazy, but I kinda like him. I know the fox guys going on and on about him being 20 and all that gets old. But I like his enthusiasm.

Of course I reserve the right to change my opinion, depending on how the rest of the series goes.

i think Fox called MLB who called the Washington front office who called Soto and told him to drop the crotch grab. That makes his "Soto Shuffle" bullshit slightly less annoying, but it's still an arrogant piece of nonsense. I wish Bob Gibson were still pitching. Soon enough  Soto would have a real reason to grab his crotch.

 A couple of observations: The Astros have certainly run into a buzzsaw regarding the Nats. The Nats are playing very well and every single thing is falling right into place for them. It will be interesting to see how the Astros regroup and respond. Expecting the Nats to come back to earth is probably not a reasonable expectation. One other thing; the radio and water cooler conversations here in DC are insufferable if you are an Astros fan.  Any attempt to put the last couple of games behind you and focus on the next game is exceedingly hard. If I can make it over the next couple of days without punching someone in the nose, I will consider that a moral, spiritual and emotional victory.
Another trenchant comment by a jealous lesser intellect.

Good luck Das.

You should be here in Houston then.  The only topic of conversation on the radio is tonight's NFL game and who to start in your fantasy league.
