Hawt Taeks from the Game Threads. Don’t let this happen to you.

The Astros are in the ALCS for the third year in a row. They have won over 100 games for the third year in a row. They won the World Series just two years ago, in large part because of their miraculous ability to come from behind. Games 2 and 5 of that series are two of the best come from behind World Series victories EVER.

And yet, in Sunday’s Game 2 ALCS, through most of which the Astros were tied, although for a few innings they were one run behind, you would think the Astros were the Orioles getting trounced by the Astros by 20 runs.

Of course we’re smart fans and realism is called for. I’m not calling for irrational optimism or homerism. But it is not realism to succumb to despair when the Houston Astros are behind by one run in a playoff game. And Carlos Correa showed us why once again.

Here are some of the greatest hits of Sunday’s hawt taeks.

George Springer Sucks

(before he hit the game tying home run_

George, what happened to you?

Bad George

Is back

agree, this is a must game, and they are just better than us

we have way too many players that are not hitting at all, especially Springer

Aaron Judge hit a 2- run homer to put the Yankes up 2-1. Oh no, the game is over

Game over

The Astros can apparently only score runs on pitch tippers. They’re done

They’re not getting to the World Series..

In fact, there’s a high probability this is the last game in Houston this year. Can’t buy a hit with RISP and no one should let that fact cloud their judgment. We’re 0-3 this postseason after getting behind.

Do I hope they do better? Of course, I love this team. Do I expect it? Not at all.

Lots of game left

Lots of time for the Yankees to blow out this inept offense

Damn folks

Its a one run game

I agree, but we’ve been scufflin this post season and especially so far in this series…we all know you’re not going to win scoring one run in two games…

Posted by XXXXXXX on Oct 13, 2019 | XXXXXXX up reply rec flag

No faith because of ABs like that

And then the other team can just switch pitchers when the lineup turns back over and the Astros oblige by doing jack shit. Again and again.

The Bullpen Sucks

We’re burning Osuna in the middle of the 8th?

Posted by XXXXXXXXX on Oct 13, 2019 | XXXXX PM reply rec flag

Watch us get a lead in the bottom and have AJ leave him in for the 9th to blow it

Posted by XXXXXXX on Oct 13, 2019 | XXXXX PM up reply rec flag

If this goes to extras it could be a real problem with the rest of our bullpen

Correa Sucks

Correa’s trying to end it.

Our boys have a tendency for hero-ball

It’s more likely I win the lottery tomorrow

Than someone walks off on a HR against Chapman with the way they’re hitting

Posted by XXXXXXXX on Oct 13, 2019 | XXXXXXPM reply rec flag

Remember when Correa was a MVP type player and not just a fringe all star

good times

that should be it for alvarez at anything higher than the 7 spot

Who goes ahead? Correa is just as bad

The Astros Suck

Are all the Tampa and Yankee relivers really that unhittable?.

Posted by XXXXXXX on Oct 13, 2019 | XXXXX PM up reply rec flag

Yes but we also suck

wish the astros site would stop with the #takeitback

the only thing that it looks like we are taking back is that ALCS loss

Look, we’ll be lucky if this isn’t a sweep.

Posted by XXXXXXX on Oct 13, 2019 | XXXXX PM reply rec flag

we need a drinking game.. every time someone says this heh..

but I do agree.. offense is not going to win this one for us… hope they prove me wrong..

Posted by XXXXXXXX on Oct 13, 2019 | XXXXX PM up reply rec flag

35 minute inning and we come away with nothing but 2 more RISP failures. That was probably the ballgame. 1/10 with RISP.

Posted by XXXXXXon Oct 14, 2019 | XXXXX AM reply rec flag

OH Yeah, Maybe Correa doesn’t suck

Dare we pray for a walkoff with 7-8-9 up? We haven’t had a hit since Altuve’s 1B in the 5th…

YES WE CAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE CAPTAIN DELIVERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A Few Wise Voices in the Wilderness

2 balls hit to RF, difference tonight

Did Boone take Paxton early? I think he did

Posted by XXXXXXXXXXXX on Oct 13, 2019 | XXXXXXX reply rec flag

2 1/3 innings in and Boone just blinked…pulling his starter with just one run on the board….dividends for later.

Calling a Correa HR

Correa likes to walk off bottom of the ninths Alcs game 2’s.

And deny Tucker his “Golden Sombrero?”

I was off by 2 innings.

But I just flew back to Texas from the Eastern time zone this afternoon, so I’m blaming the time change.

Maybe you could start commenting when you have a good feeling about something.

Change up the mojo and all.

But thank you for being such a nice and reasonable guy, a lot of these commenters on here need a voice a reason in a time like this haha
