They're at something like $298.5MM payroll now. Almost makes you pine for the days of Steinbrenner.

I'm not as in love with the other two (although I don't hate them), but Marisnick is one of my favorites, too. Every team needs the unheralded guys who nonetheless make important contributions, and he's definitely one of those.

Castro, too. Gattis's fly out was hit really hard as well. Good to see a pitcher who isn't Archer I guess.

Fiers has the same release point on all his pitches with the over-the-top delivery. I think it makes it harder for hitters to pick up what kind of pitch he is throwing.  But he's a bit up a nibbler too.

I had a number of years listening to Astros radio back in the days when we had dial up modems with long lags and incoming phone calls would bump the feed.  I actually liked Ashby on radio but when you can see what is going on you realise what he says doesn't always line up with what you see.  Not sure but I think he inserts a lot more of personal opinions these days and perhaps tries to come across a lot more intellectual than he used  to.

I like Fiers. I think he's a valuable guy. I think you could do a lot worse than five starters like Keuchel, McHugh, McCullers, Feldman, and Fiers.

Altuve  really pisses me off sometimes. He appears to have no idea about situational hitting.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

Those last few pitches to Pederson looked good.  But he's running on adrenaline right not.  I think you gotta give him a shot in the 9th.

mlb.com had a red no hitter label on the scoreboard panel on the left to alert people what was going on.  Still there now.  But they had it up at least at the beginning of the 9th

That's as excited as I've heard Brownie call a strikeout.

That was the end of the eighth?  I thought at the time he was trying to choke it down but there was probably some fist pumping.

Great recap.

I could only get the radio feed to stream here, so listened during the game. I'm watching the video clip of Fiers in the post game interview. Fantastic. I'm really happy for him.

That was absolutely fantastic.  Both the recap and the game.

And to HH's point about not doing anything different the last two innings, in our house it went from telling the older kid "get ready for bed" to "just keep doing whatever it is you were doing.  This is 'free time.' No explanations, just keep doing it."

I was hanging out with friends tonight. Few hours ago looked and saw I'd missed a couple text messages: "You watching?" from my dad and "!!" from Spiers for Hall of Fame. So after everybody left I tucked my wife in and turned on the game.

Mostly I am thinking about Castro the Astro, who has been on this absurd train ride longer than any of them; who went from purposeless summers catching meaningless games in an empty stadium to 30,000 Astros fans on their feet for a no hitter during a pennant race in late August.

Regardless of how this season ends up, they and we and Castro have exorcised some fucking demons.

Excellent point.  I will be disappointed if the Astros falter because of all they've accomplished this year.  But I'm also immensely proud of them because of what they've accomplished, and that will not change.  I love this team.

Except when they drive me nuts.

Last night I re-watched the first three innings before going to bed.  I got up this morning and re-watched every video clip, read every article, re-read the GameZone. 

The rest of the season is going to be fun.

Did anyone listen to the Astro radio broadcast last night? I did not but they were using some audio from Ford as voiceover for ESPN clips this morning. After the K that ended the 8th he said something about it being a no-hitter through 8.

I only listened to the 9th and he said no hitter through 8. Then he would say, 2 outs away, 1 more out to go, 1 strike away from a no hitter.

I missed the entire game because I was flying out to visit the in-laws (ironically, to Los Angeles). Took out the phone when we landed, opened up MLB atbat, and thought "something looks odd about that box score..." I can't remember the last time I didn't get to at least check the score once or twice during an Astros game.

I did manage to witness the previous one in person, though.

Obviously what we do and say in the stands and in here means absolutely nothing. Still, you respect the tradition. I can understand, however, an announcer wanting to make it known what was going on.  They do not want someone to tune in and say, "eh, games almost over" and tune away without knowing what was happening.

Gene Elston did not believe in the tradition/superstition. I do. Like Knox's dad, I texted Mark "Are you watching?"

I often read the GZ after the game, it is still fun even if you know the score.  GZ has been a good read this last week with walk offs and all.  Mind you, you need to be careful where and when you read, if you LOL on the bus or in air port lounges you get some pretty funny looks for the people around you.

Don't blame the GZ for those funny looks.

I listened to the whole thing. He first said "no hitter" at the end of the 7th, I think. Sparks seemed to be at a bit of a loss to know how to reply.
