    Yes but I want AJ to reduce my stress level in the 9th.

    TB is on fire, up 9-3 in the bottom of the 6th

    Hope the Astros come ready for game 4

    Game 4 id looking like the Rays are going to take it. Everything going their way.

    Well. Whose pitching game 5? Cole?

    Looking like Cole v Glasnow...or it could be another bullpen game from the Rays...

    We need to make sure not to run ourselves out of an inning the way they did last night, even if it DID require two magnificent throws in tandem to nail 'tuve at the plate.

    The two line-out DP's to Choi also did not help...

    Rays could have done a LOT more damage though...kudos to the pen for keeping them from doing so.

    Its reminding me of last year where everything went the Red Sox way in the ALCS after we won game one. Last night felt exactly the same way.

    Agree, 2003TexasGrad. After Boston got that 3-run double off of Cole, they shelled every pitcher we sent out there, even JV.

    Not Houston's series, but, damn...Atlanta is in the middle of a whooping...Cards put up TEN in the first inning. And that is a Game 5...so Atlanta can start calling in their tee times for tomorrow...

    Bats are dead now but I guess TB’s pitching has been good too

    Hows is Rays bullpen so deep but the Astros bullpen so weak?

    Can these guys take the Yankees? Home field should help.

    This is probably what it looks like
    We only get Cole twice if its goes 7
    Greinke stepping up would help
    Game 1: Greinke
    Game 2: Verlander
    Game 3: Cole
    Game 4: Urquidy/bullpen
    Game 5: Greinke
    Game 6: Verlander
    Game 7: Cole

    So, two Verlanders and two Coles; that’s four.

    Hopefully we get a bonus with Greinke at home. Given his "issues" with too much attention, starting @NY felt like certain loss. At least this way, we have a fighting chance with him. He is capable.

    WRT to Kate Upton's tweet - damn that's strong.

    So all we gotta do is win all the home games and we got this.

    This is not that bad for us, IMO
    We should pound them at home
    They do not have as good a staff as Tampa Bay
