It's been a joy and a pleasure to enjoy this season with all you fine gentlemen.

Playoff games are too tense for me to post during the games. It's just too much for me to handle while hanging on every pitch.

With that said I'll see you fellas on the other side!

I haven't posted near as much as in past seasons, but I've still probably read 90-95% of the posts in this thread, sometimes 5-10 pages at a time as I catch up.

I'd say about 80% or more of my TexAgs activity is this thread, and the notifications are the only reason I still pay to use the site. I tried cancelling and it was impossible to keep up on here (first place problems...).

I live in the Metroplex, so this is my main outlet for Astros banter and information. Thank you to all who contribute!

Let me just say this:

I have located the shltter stall that I stayed in for 2.5 innings of WS game 5 that is the sole reason we won.

Will use again if necessary.

You have to provide a directv login to watch fox sports 1 online. Since I have direct through AT&T I don't have a login and my AT&T login doesn't work.

Any ideas?

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!
No... You need to be here for this sh**. I present to you the June 5th lineup that lost to the M's 14-1:


For a second I was very confused/angry on how White was still playing for us and why that was opening lineup for the ALDS

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, NUKE LALOOSH!!!, Bregxit!!!!, IRISH PETE!!!!!, n_touch!!! 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!


No love for my off days gifs...
You need to do a new gif with his post as the background.


Oh, I absolutely thought about it, but it's the playoffs and I don't want to mess up what's worked all season. I'm not superstitious, but I am a little stitious.

Do you have a site you are using to make those or are you chroma keying in Vegas, Premier, etc?

I've just been pulling various pictures of MMP from google, then throwing them into this site to create the gif:

There are some that don't work, but for the most part it's been working pretty well. I think I started the season by posting the same one over a few times, then decided to start changing it up each off day.

Thanks! I figured there was a site but all I could find were meme generators.

The ALDS nervousness is kicking in for me! Need that first pitch to settle them down.

Heads up.

If you have a Mastercard you can apparently buy tickets for the ALDS

go to https://www.priceless.com/
Thanks! Just grabbed some for Saturday. No idea where the seats are or when I'll find out, but the price is good.
Awesome. Let us know what you end up getting.

Hopefully they will do the same for the ALCS.

I would have bought some but I'm out of town this weekend.
Tickets just got sent to my Ballpark app account. 417, row 8. Not bad, considering that it cost me $72 total for two, and tickets in the same section are going for anywhere from $80 (row 17) to $125 (row 1) on StubHub.

Here's my dream 1st inning:

JV 1-2-3

Offense loads the bases and Alvarez smashes a grand slam.

Man I'm nervous. Everyone picking the Stros to win the WS (as they should) just makes me more nervous.

I'm really only nervous about the ALDS. If we were to not get past the ALDS as the top team in the AL, I think that would be a huge disappointment.

Getting to the ALCS against another 100 win team and losing would be much less heart-breaking.

That said, we're going to win this ALDS and keep rolling!
