Before the playoffs begin, quick thanks to all the fellow posters who make this thread a good place to talk Astros and procrastinate on more important life matters:

Mazag - excellent OP
Ag07 - the voice of reason
AggiEE - I expect full on complaining that Tucker should start if Reddick doesn't go 4/4 today
Farmer1906 kind of like Gilfoyle from Silicon Valley (smart/informed takes, he's usually always right but he's kind of an ass sometimes)
Marvin - the guy you want to grab a beer and BS with

Mathguy, Harry Dunne, Teddy, CFTXAG, redline, Frok, beat40, EastCoastAgNc, Rusty, astros4545, W, willjohnathan, bearkatag15, Mr. Bond and to those unnamed

I've enjoyed reading everyone's takes this year. This is a really fun thread, made more fun by the fact that we get to follow our favorite team going through what might be its pinnacle moment as a franchise.

107 wins. JV, Cole, Greinke. Seven hitters flirting with .900+ OPS. Regular seasons don't get much better than that. Time to cash it in with a ring!


Hey man, screw you too


+1!!!!

And I just realized we got all the way through the season without me having to ignore Nuke...the world must be about to end!

Miley has been so shaky for several straight outings that I think you gotta use him as a last resort.
I assume Miley is on the roster to eat innings should a game get out of hand one way or the other.
I imagine Miley made the roster because he's the lone lefty and the rays can roll out a lot of left-handed hitters.

I just don't trust Miley to get anyone out. So I have a hard time imagining a scenario other than it being like 8-0 or something where you'd feel like 'okay, I'm good with Miley here.'

JV is actually better against lefties this year.

Idk who that is (haven't watched SV yet) but I'm taking that as a compliment.

Add yourself to that list because you da real MVP.

And you didn't list Irish because he's been MIA often this year, but that guy is nails. Hopefully he's here for the postseason.

I'm here. I'm a high school football coach, so time is scarce to post.

The good thing is they already expired Morton until - what - game 3?

You'd think. I really hope the bats can light up the first few innings and get into their pen... if for no other reason than to wear them down for later in the series (if necessary).

Does anyone know if the game this afternoon will be available through the mlb app? I'm with Dish and apparently the FS1 channel is not available due dispute between Fox and Dish. Thanks.
Sign up for a free trial for a streaming service. Most of them at least give a one week free trial. I know YoutubeTV has FS1, as well as probably most of the others.

$40 fee per ticket on stub hub. Lord.

Thought I was getting club seats for 130 but 175 is nuts. I never have to buy tickets so not used to this haha.

Any advice? Should I keep waiting?

Try your luck with a scalper at the park?

Although I have heard of last minute stub hub discounts like right before the close

Deluxe's post is motivation for me to not just come in after the ASB from now on. Of course, if we win the WS, I'll have no choice but continue joining the board in late July forever. Remember the name just in case!

Seems like a decent post to separate regulars from the bandwagon posters that show up to complain in the 2nd inning, tonight
