Astros fizzle in Arlington. Rangers pounce in 1st inning to win 5-0.

The Astros have three starting pitchers right now. You know their names. When one of those three pitchers doesn’t start the game the Astros have very little chance of winning. Today Framber Valdez was given a reprieve from AAA...

Astros blast-off on Apollo 11 night. Eagle crash lands on A’s 11-1

I used to think that numerology was stupid. I mean, sabermetrics kind of numerology is cool, but numbers having hidden meaning and mystical recurrences? Cmon. If you watched the game on TV, you’ve already heard all this, but if not,...

Game Thread 92. July 12th, 2019, 7:05 CDT. Astros vs Rangers

Rough game last night. Starter Framber Valdez got bombed, the Astros got shut out, and Alex Bregman got injured. He will not be in the lineup tonight. Cy Sneed was one silver lining last night. He replaced Valdez with...

Converting new Astros fans every day…(because the Astros really are the best)

Game Thread 99, July 19th, 2019, 7:10 CDT, Rangers vs. Astros.

Wasn’t the trip to Anaheim full of drama and excitement? The Astros couldn’t make the opener concept work for them in games 1 &2 in LA, and they couldn’t score much on those nights either, getting clobbered in both...

Game Thread 130. August 22, 2019, 7:10 CDT. Tigers vs Astros.

It’s been another great Astros season. but these last few days are the days that try fans’ souls. Terrible loss yesterday; the Astros blew a superb Verlander two-hitter with pitiful hitting and terrible base running. It happens, even when...

Game Thread 109, July 30th, 2019, 6:10 CDT. Astros vs Indians.

No game yesterday. I’m ready for baseball. Let’s play two! Our Justin goes against their Bieber tonight, Shane Bieber that is. And he’s having a fine season, in the tradition of Cleveland pitching; (10-3, 3.44 ERA) But the poor...

Houston Astros: Yordan Alvarez doesn’t even need to hit home runs

To the unbiased onlooker, it may appear as though Yordan Alvarez just really, really doesn’t like the baseball, and feels the need to hit it stupid hard with a wooden bat. He’s making professional baseball look the same as...
