Escobar drops a routine pop up by Gattis with the bases loaded. 4-0.

No comment by team, but I'd assume Worth.

The question is... Who comes off the 40 man? Has the time for Singleton's DFA arrived?

Fontana or Duffy are likely candidates.  Reed would make the 12th infielder on the 40-man

I don't know, but if Valbuena was actually grabbing his back like it looked like he was after that K, that may be your answer.

That makes no sense.  Valbuena to the DL, but he starts one more game with Worth on the bench?

But if you meant they have their answer now then yeah.  But the move was already made.  Can't be undone?

Maybe Marwin goes back into a strict platoon with Valbuena. Or maybe Reed takes ABs away from Gattis at DH.

Ashby's Julia commentary is the verbal equivalent of musking up with Sex Panther.

He is quite the creepster.

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

Does Ashby even watch the game? How could he not know that was Gattis?

Watching people on the Rangers' kiss-cam is deeply disturbing. These people breed.

6 in a row! Maybe this season will be the mirror image of last year's hot start followed by malaise. 2 games out of the wildcard.

ETA: per Brian Smith in twitter: From 17-28 to 38-36. #Astros.

21-8 run not bad.

I mentioned that in my survey response. He's gross.

This was a great game to hear on the radio.  I love those guys.  They were talking about the Negro League Museum in KC when I got to my parents house. I almost sat in the car to listen to the rest of their conversation.  They know the game and its history.

Just watched the end of that game. Red Sox trailed 7-4 with 2 outs in the top of the 9th and came back to win it 8-7.

FSSW pans to the crowd after the final out for a reaction shot--captures a 70-ish woman muttering "I'll be damned" to her husband who has a dazed expression on his face as he shakes his head back and forth. It was priceless.

9 games back.

I guess now I have to go to random Rangers games every night the rest of the season. I am so screwed.

That was your doing?

And... why did you go in the first place?

I was in Fort Worth and the Cats aren't playing any more. I thought I'd go see the place. I am so screwed.

I clicked on that, and the pre-roll commercial I got was one of the "Shot on iPhone" film clips of a hippo chasing a boat. I'd like to think that was intentional, but it probably wasn't.

I didn't realize you were actually at the park. You poor, poor man.

You might as well eat a Frito pie, too before you go to the next Ranger game.

They sell Frito pies there. It was the best thing about the place.
