Jake with the super speed mode engaged. Won't see many triples down the LF line.

Would love to see Morton and the Rays win that

And just as expected we fail to score the runner on third with no outs

Was hoping Jake was going to have another close play at home. Angels catchers from now on be like...

Think we get a AAA lineup tomorrow or does Hinch give Cole a real lineup for 5 innings then pull everyone?

I don't know what more impressive. A dude in white trousers narrowing avoiding the horns of death or the people in the background acting like the home team has just won the World Series.

Probably gives him a legit lineup for a while.

You sound pretty pleased with our ineffectiveness in that regard just because we ended up with a W against a bad team

We're going to be playing much better teams in the playoffs and every run counts

106. Home field through the WS.
JV's 3000 and 300.
What a night.

It took 161 games and 106 wins to clinch home field. Wonder how often that's happened. Probably never.

Be real, you'd be on your feet too. Dude doing spin moves like peak Barry Essanders out there.

I bet you're right and means the playoff field is very salty. We better be ready to play. You know how the Ags come out at halftime this season...we need to be the opposite of that.

Altuve and Yuli both batting .298
You know they want a shot at 300

Bregman at .295 needs 3 hits probably

Bregman isn't hitting .300... his day today confirmed it.

He's sitting at 163/553 on the season. Only a 4 for 4 or 5 for 5 day gets him there.

3 for 4 and 4 for 5 both fall short

Wouldn't be surprised to see a really strong, playoff caliber lineup tomorrow, and then see a bunch of subs in the 5th or 6th inning.

Correa in danger of being left off the playoff roster?

https://www.chron.com/sports/astros/article/Astros-Carlos-Correa-Doctor-good-to-go-ALDS-14476132.php

Quote:

Correa's played in only 75 games this season and taken 11 major league plate appearances since Aug. 19 the day a recurrence of back problems first returned. Luhnow intimated on Saturday that Correa's inclusion on the ALDS roster is not a given, especially if the shortstop fails to meet expectations during workouts at Minute Maid Park next week.

"I can't predict the outcome," Luhnow said. "But we're hopeful based on everything he's gone through and what our doctors and trainers are saying that there's a pretty good chance that he'll be in the lineup next Friday."

You know, I'm not even sure I want him on the roster. He's done a lot of damage to his reputation this year.

I'm not a Correa fan right now either, but this team has been scuffling recently on offense and he is still the best offensive short stop in the game when he is healthy. He played 75 games this year and hit 21 HRs... That's a better pace than Bregman.

The lineup can use that extra layer of power in the 7 hole.

I definitely want him on the roster. His potential is greater than any replacement, especially if he's healthy
