Something to take the Phillies out of the record books would be sweet.
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

T1:

Deshields flies out F7
Choo bounces back to the mound, and Kazmir  takes his time, then nearly knocks Valbuena over with a 95 mph heater at the knees
Beltre...full count...walks
Fielder doubles off the LCF wall, Beltre scores
Napoli strikes out swinging

1-0 Rangers

How the fuck does Kazmir have an ERA under about 8.00?

Velo was low I think, highest 93?  Is he a guy that usually works up to his max over a couple of innings?

You know, Beltre and Fielder are really good baseball players. Both are veterans who have been through a lot of playoff chases. It's wrong to think their not ready to drive nails.

That was a nice job by Altuve to move up. Negated by Correa striking out.

And Gallardo's rat tail takes second place to his fugly beard.

Altuve doubles down RF line
Springer lines one off the pitcher, but caroms right to the SS, out 1-6-3, Altuve has to stay at 2B
Altuve to 3B on a wild pitch...Gimenez blocks it, but nice read by Altuve
Correa...full count...infield in...blown away by a 91 mph fastball
Lowrie...fouls off the 3-0...walks
Rasmus flies out to shallow LF

Astros right on script...0-3 w/RISP

1-0 Rangers

3-0 Rangers, still hitting with 2 out in the 2nd.

This is the worst defensive outfield the Astros can possibly put out there.

That wasn't Tucker's fault. That was just more of the fantastically shitty luck that they've been having this month. They've done plenty to hurt themselves, but they've gotten zero breaks, too. (Other than Lowrie's improbably HR, I guess.)

Not an easy play because Tucker is slow and gets a terrible jump on the ball.  He's simply not a good outfielder.

Is Kazmir normally 95+ or am I having flashbacks to his TB days ?

T3:

Fielder flies out F8
Napoli singles to LF
Moreland grounds out 4-3, Napoli to 2B
Andrus flies out F6 to shallow LF

3-0

Is Kazmir normally 95+ or am I having flashbacks to his TB days ?
He was able to get 94-95 back in July.

Jose has had his chances to leave his mark on this late Sept. stretch and has consistently not come through with men on base.

Who on the team has come through with men on base? Jose been left on base more than anyone. Jose and his terrible approach is the reason this team can't drive in runs?

He's an incredible hitter, but he hasn't come through with men on over the last week or so when the team needed it. I have high expectations for him. It's a team game but there are a couple guys on every roster who are counted on more than others.

B3:

Springer reaches on E5...Beltre double clutched and couldn't get the throw off...inexplicably ruled a hit now
Correa...2-0...misses a meatball...misses a second meatball...swings and misses a bouncer 5 feet outside
Lowrie...2-0...2-1..Springer running on the pitch...grounds to 1B...ump calls it foul...not sure why...looks like they'll go to replay...should be a 3U with Springer moving to 2B...no replay needed...called correctly
Springer gets caught off 2B, but throw goes into CF, and moves to 3B on the TE2
Rasmus...3-1...grounds out 3-1

0 for 5 tonight, 2 for the last 24 w/RISP

3-0 Rangers

Deshields doubles on a liner up the middle...man that kid can fly
Choo homers to RF, Deshields scores
Beltre...full count..doubles over Tucker's head...
Fielder bloops one to CF, Beltre scores, Rasmus throws it against the screen, Fielder to 2B

That's it for Kazmir, Fields in

Napoli grounds out 5-3

Rangers just toying with the Astros now...lead 6-0

Think about this carefully, because it's exactly what Bud was hoping for.

Bud was right to hope that the Rangers would handle turds and suck shit.

Correa has had three terrible at bats tonight.

On top of everything else that sucks about the end of this season, Price is going to win the CY over Keuchel, and Lindor is going edge past Correa for ROY.

A good tactic may be to not give these runs right back, we should try that.

All we would need is about 20mm for a middle of the order bat and 10-15 more for a fireballer in the bullpen.  He can pocket the other 45-49mm or so.

Andrus flairs one behind 2B, Altuve catches it but is run over by Correa, Altuve hits the ground and the ball rolls out as he rolls over...Andrus to 2B...Altuve still on the ground...scored an E6
Odor pops out F6...no one tackles him so the inning ends

6-2 still

Is that Timmy Lupus out there in the outfield?  What a clusterfuck

That's how tight they are.

T8:

Gimenez lines out to LF against the wall, Rasmus takes out part of the scoreboard, but gets there
Deshields flies to CF, Marisnick calls for it, is there, and Rasmus knocks it away at the last second...ruled a single, for some unknown reason
Choo grounds out 3U, Deshields to 2B
Deshields to 3B on a wild pitch
Beltre flairs one to shallow RF, Villar, Marwin and Springer converge and amazingly don't run into each other...score it F9

6-2

Singleton was smart to sign that contract. I hope he invests wisely.

B8:

Dyson, who may be a hobbit, in for the Rangers

Gattis chops a slow roller to SS, out 6-3
Singleton pinch hitting for Marwin...hits one 450 high and 100 feet deep for an F6, as the Rangers yuck it up with a choreographed catch
Villar...full count...bounces over the mound, Andrus throws it into the dugout, Villar will go to 2B on the TE6
Castro strikes out swinging on three pitches

6-2 Rangers

Heard a rumor online that Correa is sick and trying to play through it.
If so, that may not have been the best idea ever...

Tolleson in...

Marisnick...3-0...3-1...3-2...pops out F3 in foul ground
Springer...swinging from his heels...quickly down 0-2...continues to swing from the heels and punches out
Correa singles to LF
Lowrie...quickly down 0-2 as Correa takes 2B...flies out F7

Astros take it in the shorts again.

That was damn lame.  I should be pissed off after a game like that but I must be still enjoying the afterglow from the footy last night.  MF Hawks qualified for their fourth consecutive Grand Final and have a chance that three straight premierships... winning is a nice feeling.

Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy
