101-53. Magic # at 1. I'll admit I'm going to be selfish and hope the As win tonight and we clinch on the field in front of the fans.

Great start for the offense today out of the gates, and a great bullpen performance over 4 innings.

James, Pressly, Harris, and Osuna is a playoff-type of bullpen game. I know it was the Angels, but still.

That Pressly and Harris combo can be great in a close playoff game. Need them to stay in form.


Hell if those 2 and Roberto all hit their stride in October this team is nearly unbeatable.

I know some said the Astros weren't serious about winning home field advantage during the "down stretch" in August.

I feel like no one should question this organization's motivations after they decided to go to the 4 man rotation.

They have the opportunity to accomplish all their goals since the "down stretch" in August when many were freaking out - win the division, have the best AL record and keep giving guys days off to be rested for the postseason.

Still a long way to go on the best record in the AL, but the team has surely shown they desire winning and that shouldn't be questioned.

They have a 2 game lead on the Yankees, and won the season series 4-3. That's a strong lead with 8 games left (7 for NY).

1.5 game lead.

Exactly. AJ has said a hundred and fifty times this year he wants to win every game. Giving guys rest or using this bp arm when this other boy atm is available or whatever, all those decisions are designed to not only win the current game but keep the team in position to win any game.

You're right. 2 in the loss column.

Yeah, and 2 up in the loss column with and aforementioned tie breaker.

Our magic number for HF is 6 with 8 to play.

I've been glad to see Roberto looking fairly sharp the past couple of weeks. Hopefully this is something to stay.

at this point the Yankees need the Astros to lose 3 games.

that seems highly unlikely with just the Angels and Mariners left

What a fall... shows how special the Astros have been these past 3 years
ah yes, Alex Cora.

at this time last year he was an expert on national politics, disaster relief, aid distribution, and so forth.

not so much in 2019.

basically took the same group of players and won 25 fewer games

Ok kids. If you find yourself in a slump make sure you swing a towel at a chair while looking with both eyes at your reflection in a mirror

Keuchel starting a world series game as a visitor at MMP? Would be great for story lines.

The night we need an A's loss, Fiers throw 8+ innings of 2 hit baseball... he wasn't about to let us win the division on his account
