    Josh Reddick robbed the Orioles of a HR at the wall in RF, then hits one his next at bat to almost the same spot (RTIC sign). The following at bat? Grand Slam. This team is stacked. Oh yeah my man Jake got his first hit last night that was *not* a HR (he had 2 HRs in 2 starts against the Rangers). Meanwhile, Altuve and Correa both hitting well over .400 - did I mention we are stacked?

    Correa's inside-the-parker
    He was pulled from the previous game due to a bad big toe

    Correa's boo-boo toe felt better I guess.

    Red Dog was en fuego last night!

    And I can go back to going to Express games. I used to go to 2-3 a year when they were with the Astros, since the switch I have been to ONE game and that was because my wife made me. I saved my Express hat, tho, so I am ready.

    ya'll are my pick. as a dallas guy, i don't like the astros and rockets on principle (not the Texans though. maybe because they're not the Oilers and i like their logo).
    but i love the astros roster (and rockets roster to be able to take down GSW-though i dislike CP3, i respect him).
    the yanks will be tough. my guess is it depends on who the top 2 starters for each end up being in the ALCS.

    Hosner probably feels like crap after that play but he got zero help from his teammates.

    I shouldn't be so shallow. He's with her for her intelligence, her sense of humor, her personality, her character, etc. Looks has nothing to do with it.

    When Garrit Cole pitches, Bannister has Mike Scott nightmares

    13-7 and bats have not yet caught up with themselves

    The offense has been light across the team thus far and we have been riding our pitching. If pitching can stay on pace and our bats wake up, we will be a handful for anybody.

    I love the pitching ninja
    MLB got him banned off twitter fro awhile, but he is back now. In part because pitchers like Lance McCullers complained about it
    Anyways .....
