I flagged it. But I also Blue starred it. Sort of a Ying-Yang thing.

Great glove and arm. Terrible hitter. Didn't realize he was in coaching now.

Maximize TV coverage


How does that maximize TV coverage?

The average casual baseball fan would watch our matchup on prime time. They're not gonna tune in at work.

You'd think MLB would want it's marquee matchup that's been talked about for months in prime time.

Will all the games be on FS1? I hope there's no more mlb.com. Even though I subscribe and watched the Astros all year on mlb I couldn't watch the playoff game because my tv provider is Hulu which wasn't on the approved list to log on.

?

Yes. FS1 from here on out with the exception of game 1 on Fox.

2 tix available for Sunday.

437, row 4, seats 11-12

Just want what I paid - about $125 apiece after taxes and fees.

**disclaimer** these are marked as obstructed view seats. Best I can tell the foul pole is somewhat in the way.

There is no such thing as maximizing TV coverage when you play on FS1 and TBS. Two stations nobody watches. I think baseball doesn't want new fans.

MLB at long last has heard all the weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth over the damn Yankees always getting the prime time spot for their postseason games.

Good read on Greinke and how he's gotten along with the guys in the clubhouse and how he's a trade shark in the Stros fantasy football league. Really hoping he has a good outing tomorrow.

Hope he starts pitching like he is comfortable. He has looked uncomfortable most of the time.

What did he do?
Ag_07

Was up with the bases juiced. Count went to 2-0 and after every pitch he was mean mugging the pitcher while grabbing his nuts. Did it on the 2-0 pitch only to be called a strike.

After all his antics he hit a weak grounder ground out to 2B.

Complete classless POS move.

Yeah, looks like a total dbag with that lunge forward and crotch grab. It looked like Mikolas turned to 1st after the out was made and gave him a return crotch grab.

I don't get the slide and stare thing he does when he takes a pitch. Someone needs to ear hole him.

Was he nearly hit by a pitch or something?

Odd to do that when you're ahead of the count lol

He is an extremely young and talented Carlos Gomez type shenigans at the plate

The crotch grab is primal juvenile

He's 20 years old. Has been celebrating with sparkling cider instead of champagne because he's not legal yet. But those antics are childish and someone is going to drill him if he doesn't stop it.

And by someone I mean JV or Cole will put one in his ribs. You know Ryan or Gibson would.

With this windup I'm shocked that everyone doesn't run at will on Sanchez.

Wong drags a bunt and he's standing on 1B without a play and they tie it. That shift was stupid deep
