Hinch should be in Altuves esr before every at bat saying "level swing, don't be a hero, just do your job".

But no. Let's him go up there and uppercut a lazy pop on the first pitch.

We aren't getting the clutch hitting because we are seeing dudes for 20 pitches.

We just need to connect on someone who slips one by.

Cole needs to stay solid.

Frustrating. This team suddenly has zero power.

Good thing we have Cole!

Y'all ***** about Yordon, Springer, Correa and Reddick watching first pitches and ***** about Altuve swinging at them.

Keep letting these guys hang around I don't like it. Putting a helluva lot on one guy's shoulders.

Ok Jose. Some big guns are coming out. Make it worth it.



I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

No, it's because other than the first inning, we've done nothing but try to hit bombs on high pitches that are thrown because they know we are only trying to hit bombs.

The first inning was the fluke at this point. Let's hope it's all we needed.

In the 3rd inning, Gerrit Cole didn't record a strikeout.

Why is that significant?

Cole had recorded at least 1 strikeout in 73 consecutive innings (reg. and postseason) dating back to Aug. 1.

It was the longest such streak in the Expansion Era (since 1961)....by 33 innings.

Was the first inning a fluke for Verlander a couple days ago?

Are people really surprised Altuve swung for the fences on the first pitch? He's pretty much always done that.
