Absolutely incredible catch by Hamilton. That'll be a highlight for a few weeks.

I was watching Ronaldo spit the bit in the Euro Championships. What did Hamilton do?

Wow, I just saw the replay. What a remarkable catch. Marisnick must feel snake-bit.

Nice job by Gregerson there.  Strikes out the side in the eighth.  4-2 good guys.

He threw some really wicked pitches that were called balls. It was indeed a nice job.

If I could throw a 98 MPH fastball for strikes I would use it more than Giles does.

There's nothing wrong with his fastball and nothing wrong with his slider.  There's everything wrong with the consistency of those pitches and his ability to locate them.

His penchant for throwing spinners and belt high fastballs with 2 strikes is fucking maddening.

Dear Root Sports, playing a commercial talking about how clutch Rasmus is after that putrid attempt in extras is making my blood pressure spike.

He reminds me very much of Kyle Farnsworth.  100 mph fastball, quality slider.  Mediocre command, control, and results.

Why on earth would you not squeeze with the winning run there?

Since May 1, 2015, why do I continue to think (hope?) this is a better than .500 team?

It clearly is. The difference last year was Keuchel's home record of 15-0. Take that out of the equation and you have your 2016 Houston Astros.

Someone convince me that the rest of the team isn't picking up the fucking horrendous swing-out-of-your-shoes-shit from Gomez.

I can't remember seeing it happen more than once or twice a season until last year.

I remember Springer and Singleton both taking pretty big rips when they first appeared, probably not falling over?

Finally found a plug for my iPad and tuned in just in time for Castro's single.  I can at least relax now.

Thank you. We were screaming in our seats about this.

Hinch absolutely butchered the 9th, top to bottom.

Fuck, I had no idea this had gone to extra innings until my wife told me that the Astros had won in 11. WTF? Giles is a mystery.
