Soto can prance around the bases all he wants as long as it isn't out of the park...    And he's stranded there..

Verlander is hit or miss with his breaking stuff right now.

There's no need to pitch to Soto given the hitters behind him.  Guy is locked in.

Springer sometimes needs to be reminded that a 460 ft home run is worth the same as a 380 ft home run.

Strasburg caught a break on that hanging breaking pitch, too.
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
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

Man, Buck is seriously bitching about the strike zone.
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.

Sloppy play, make 'em pay!!!
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it
Truth isn't easy, the easy part's shit

Buck is anti-Astros.    Doesn't matter who the Astros are playing, he's for 'em..

I'll say this for the Astros offense, they are inflating Strasburg's pitch count..

His dad was an announcer for the Cardinals for a long time.  Maybe that is the source of his hatred.

Cub fans say that he is anti-Cub. Can't say I blame him about that though.

I've managed to tune out his between pitch banter.

He calls the action just fine for me.
