Will Harris will not be available. He had a baby boy yesterday! Will return tomorrow. #astrosbabies
There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese.

our bullpen needs to do more impregnating during the season and less in Dec-Feb.

Congrats to the Harris' though.

Just great.  I'm in Santa Fe and DBacks games are blacked out here.  Think a VPN from another state university will trick MLB.TV?

Whew!  Springer's trip at second nearly costs them, but three straight singles plate the first run.

T1:

Altuve strikes out looking
Springer reaches on E5
Correa fists one over 1B, Springer to 2B as he stumbles over the bag and can't move to 3B
Rasmus singles to RF, Springer comes around to score, Correa to 2B
Valbuena...3-0...walks on four pitches
Carter singles to LF, Correa scores, Rasmus scores
Tucker grounds out 4-3, Valbuena to 3B, Carter to 2B
Castro intentionally walked
Keuchel...plate suddenly got 9 feet wide...strikes out swinging

Astros lead 3-0

So, never thought about it before, but imagine they couldn't have had someone else hit 9th and then replace them with Keuchel?

No.  The starting pitcher must face at least one batter before being replaced.

Rasmus walks, Valbuena bloops one to shallow LF that the LF literally kicks away allowing Rasmus to score.  5-0.

As a catcher, I never complain about a wide strike zone.  Even less so with a 5-run lead.

So one of the events of my past, I used to work for Go Daddy and they held their Christmas parties on the field there at Chase Field.   Fun times in the past as I no longer work for that company and they stopped flying far flung employees to Arizona a couple years before I left.

B3:

Romak, pinch hitting for De La Rosa, doubles down RF line
Pollock lines out to 2B, Romak too far off the bag and is doubled off
Gosselin hit by 1-2 pitch
Goldschmidt singles to RF, Gosselin to 2B
Hill doubles down LF line, Gosselin scores, but Goldschmidt nailed at the plate 7-6-2

6-1 now

I assume that's it for Keuchel...he was really laboring after the Correa miscues.

I got back from the mandatory party last night about 12:30, fired up the phone with a bit of trepidation, and then looked at it cock-eyed and wondered if ESPN had somehow screwed up and mistakenly entered the score from some football game. I had to dig a little further to determine that, yes, the Astros had in fact cranked out 21 runs. Amazing.

And now the Twins have lost and the Angels are losing (they are literally paying Hamilton to beat them, which is pretty funny), and thinks look a lot more encouraging than they did a couple of days ago. I'm trying to decide if I dare watch tonight's game. If I thought that watching the ND-Clemson game would fuck ND, I'd do that in a heartbeat, but the bad juju will probably ricochet and fuck Clemson instead.
