No score.

Well that wasn't how it was supposed to go at all.
Quote from: NYT
On the Web ... is a recording of what she describes as her latest track, “What We Want,” a hip-hop-inflected rhythm-and-blues tune that asks, "Can you handle me, boy?" and uses some dated slang, calling someone her "boo."

Marwin jams his hand again on the dive.  Expect him to leave the game at some point.

I think every Astro hitter so far has taken center-cut fastball for strike one.

I don't get Root. I live within the Rangers blackout zone.  The 95% of the Astros games I've seen this year have been against the fucking rangers.  I want to vomit from the bottom of my feet.  Everything they do turns to gold.   Everything we do is a wet turd.

When a game is on the mlb network,  it's blacked out. Only the tbs/espn games have been viewable.

I get the rangers on fssw. I can see every rangers game i can stomach.  When they happen to play the Astros,  i can watch that game too. But if the Astros are playing the angels on mlb, no dice. Blacked out.

The poorly made point on my part was the vast majority of astros games I've seen this year have been the turdpiles they've thrown up against the rangers.

B5:

Choo hits one to where the SS should be, but with the shift, no one is there, and Choo hustles all the way into 2B for a double on what should have been an easy out
Wild pitch sends Choo to 3B, as Conger half-asses an attempt to stop the pitch
Beltre...infield in...punchs one past Correa, Choo scores
Fielder strikes out swinging
Napoli punches a little slow roller right to where the second baseman should be, an easy double play...but the shift...Altuve is able to run it down before it gets to the grass, but it's a single and Beltre to 2B
Venable to run for Napoli
Moreland pops out F6...IFR in effect
Andrus bounces one up the middle, Keuchel lets it go, but it goes past a diving Altuve into CF, Beltre scores, Venable to 2B

That's it for Keuchel...Feliz in

Odor hit by the first pitch, bases loaded
Wilson grounds into FC, Odor out 6-4

9-0 Rangers after five

Oh, can I feel your pain. At least when we were still in the NL, I could catch a few games on tv sometimes.

Why do we always play like this against the stRangers? Chrissakes.

So Keuchel has the worst start of his career in the biggest game of his career so far...
When the Clark is dead, Spack will eat his spleen. Before he dies, Spack will put his posts under the knife so the Clark will see his threads wiped out forever...

The debate is even more of a train wreck than this game, as far as I'm concerned. And I'm a Republican.

It's a hell of a lot more emtertaining than the game, that's for sure.

Trump is going to win the nomination and then get his ass kicked by an 80 year old Jewish socialist.

I don't believe in reading too much into whether a game shows that a team has what it takes to get to the playoffs and be successful there. But there's nothing good to take away from this game.

That's funny, but not ha-ha funny.

B7:

Andrus flies out F7
Odor singles to LF
Wilson homers to RF, his first of the year, Odor scores
Deshields flaps his ass then grounds out 5-3
Choo singles to RF
Beltre singles to LF, Choo to 2B

Strom chewing Feliz out

Fielder flies out F7

14-1 Rangers
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.

I'm encouraged by a couple of Carter's swings the last few nights.

It's more like the last dozen games that have me worried.

Pretty much like every ass clown on this stage. Actually I don't think Kasich qualifies as an ass clown. Which is why he's wasting his time unless he's angling for a show on MSNBC.

The fact that the Rangers are going to score 23 runs is not illustrative of what I've been talking about. It's that the Astros are going to score one.

I saw maybe a dozen ballgames at old Arlington Stadium when I was a kid in the 80s and the Rangers were in powder blue. There was something lovable about those fucked up clubs, and hey, they were in the American League! It wasn't really baseball, anyway. I've carried residual goodwill for the Rangers through the years. And hey, they were never as noxious as other Dallas teams.

The drunkish lady in the cowboy hat behind home plate may be the last straw. They can all go to hell. Every last one.

On the Web ... is a recording of what she describes as her latest track, “What We Want,” a hip-hop-inflected rhythm-and-blues tune that asks, "Can you handle me, boy?" and uses some dated slang, calling someone her "boo."

Carter almost looks like he has half a clue.

Of course as I mentioned I've been watching the debate so my perspective is carnival mirror skewed.

I meant to say three runs.

Strom chewing Feliz out


Way to go, Einstein...
Because clearly this team's problem is its total lackadaisical attitude and not the fact that they're pressing so hard that their fucking eyeballs are about to burst.
Throwing a tantrum and showing up your player in public ought to clear that right up...

Interesting stat...in the National League, six teams have been mathematically eliminated.  In the AL?...zero.

Stassi...full count... strikes out looking at a fastball right down the pipe, not sure what he was waiting for
Marisnick grounds out 6-3
