Astros give up three runs in top of first after two outs.  Just awful - again.

Cubs v. Pirates on my FOX channel, but Astros still blacked out on MLB.TV.  These days, who wants to watch.

I guess everyone who was in the GZ last night is too hungover to show up today.

At this point I would consider it a triumph if the Astros finished above .500.

@darenw: Carlos Correa's home run was hit 109 MPH... His 3rd hardest HR of the year.

Hinch is a sharp dude. When considering manager of the year, I think having a team that overachieved like the Astros have makes  a strong case for Hinch. Hell, the Rangers have underachieved, they should be 25 games over .500 with that roster.

This is the first time in 46 innings against the Rangers that we have held the lead at the end of an inning.

Astros now up 6-4 after a Gattis sac fly on a shallow fly ball scores Correa. DeShields' weak-ass throw allows Lowrie to take 2nd.

They tanked last year. Their so damn good if they kept Bogar they would be 35-40 games over .500 by now. Banister has held them back. He's a cocksucker.

Yeah, he's got a lot of talent to work with, although they did lose Darvish for the season. Last year they lost everybody for the season; that's why they finished last.

Tonight's most intriguing matchups:

Twins vs. Tigers, 6:08pm CT
Duffey (4-1, 3.15) vs. Simon (13-10, 5.21 ERA)
Let's hope Brad pulls out all the stops for this win.

Mariners vs. Angels, 8:05pm ET
F. Hernandez (18-9, 3.54) vs. Heaney (6-3, 3.30 ERA)
Let's go King Felix.

For me, since the Gomez pickup, it has been anything less than a wild card will be a disappointment with the hope on the division. 

Edit:
And even though the division is likely out of reach at this point, I think tomorrow's game is huge.  We will need Texas giving everything they got against the Angels next week.

I got curious about King Felix' numbers vs. Trout. Unfortunately Trout has killed him: .349/.377/.651 with 4 HR in 63 ABs. David Murphy has also done well (.294, 4 HR in 85 ABs), so has DeJesus (.317/.391/.488 in 41 ABs). But most of the other current Angels have struggled - Calhoun, Freese, Cron, and Ianetta are a combined 5-for-87 lifetime (an .057 AVG). Pujols is .196/.226/.353 in 51 ABs.

Overall, current Angels have hit .212/.268/.352 vs. Felix.

Neither Alfredo Simon's season stats nor his stats vs. the Twins give any reason for optimism in that game.

Edit:
And even though the division is likely out of reach at this point, I think tomorrow's game is huge.  We will need Texas giving everything they got against the Angels next week.

This. They're 4 games back with 7 to play. The must win for any real shot at the division was last night. They stepped on their dicks. Now you just don't want the Rangers sandbagging next week against the Angels.
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.

Yes, beautiful Art Deco designs. Not sure why you think they are ugly.

He's hurt. Has been for a couple of weeks.

Strained oblique a couple of weeks ago. Predictably slow recovery.

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

Sorry, I know he's hurt.  I was just wondering what, and how long.  Got it, strained oblique, slow recovery.

Four of the five relievers pitched well today.

It only takes one.

I agree, the City Hall building is a fine architectural design. Same with the Cullen building on the UofH campus.

I stood in line at the City Hall building to get my marriage license in '79. A line, and I was working on a programming project on the back of an envelope. Do people even have to do that anymore?

When Mrs. Hawk and I went to get our marriage license in 2002, we spent more time convincing the clerk that neither of us had been married before than we did in line.  The first thing the clerk said to us  was "OK, I'll need to see both your divorce decrees".  We said "neither of us have been married".  She looked at us and said "seriously, I can't issue you a license until you're both legally divorced."  Only after five or six more clarifying questions would she proceed.  The idea of two 35-year olds getting married for the first time was beyond her comprehension.

One of the reasons I got married in Florida is that here or in Colombia they demand a certificado de soltería. From my home state. I'm like, Yo, we don't do those. That's not really the answer they were looking for.

Mike Trout made a rather spectacular catch to rob Jesus Montero and the Mariners of a 3-run homer tonight. Kept the score at 2-1 M's. Now 2-2 in the 8th. This one will get replayed a lot.

I thought this catch by Mookie Betts had to be the best of the day, then I saw this catch by Mike Trout. Wow.

No doubt. I believe my mind's eye was seeing the Ezekiel W Cullen Building but my mind is always playing tricks on me, so maybe it was the Roy G Cullen building.

Is there a way to find out the Astros BAA with 2 outs? It has to be ridiculous.
No outs - .260
One out - .227
Two outs - .232
Scoring position two outs - .235
Astros BAA in September - .266
Pitchers' BABIP for season - .284
Pitchers' BABIP for September - .308
Bullpen BABIP for season - .266
Bullpen BABIP for September - .349

Where are you getting the numbers?  I'm assuming you're not working those using long division, but either way, I salute you.
