This team is the epitome of anti-clutch. Good grief what a disaster.


Was the 2017 world series team an anti clutch disaster too? I hate to break it to you, but they also lost several games in the playoffs, and looked like absolute crap for 3 games in NY.


At least we won our home games though


You don't remember the team looking like absolute garbage against Alex Wood in game 4 at home against the dodgers?


It's baseball. Crap nights happen.

So many batters swinging down on the ball for simple ground outs. Lots of looking at meatballs. Lots of swinging at bull**** outside. And lots of help from blue on sand wedge pitches.

Broke out the Macallan 12 year, it carried us in 2017.

Everyone needs to do whatever it takes

Will we get JV and Cole 4 games this series? I'm to pissed off to do math and apparently TexAgs hates me because it won't reload.

If we win both of their starts, then we are guaranteed to get to JV's second start. Win that, and we'll get to Cole in game seven. Lose one of their starts, and we'll have to win with Urquidy or Greinke to make it back to Houston.

This series isn't a matter of home field advantage. It's a matter of winning all the games that Cole/JV start. The Yankees are basically winning a "home game" tonight. We still basically have "home field advantage" despite tonight's loss.

Great pitching beats great hitting. It happens for other teams too. Look at what Anibal Sanchez just did - it doesn't only happen w CYA candidates.

Tanaka is by far their best postseason starter. We will get our runs. I'd still rather be us than them.

I'd really like to just see Alvarez smoke a ball for a hit here, preferably for extra bases. He needs to see that, I think.
He batted .316 vs the Rays.

You act like he's been playing like crap.

Grienke pitched well all things considered and the offense completely let him down. Just an absolutely pathetic showing on offense. Aside from the pitch tipping this offense had been completely silent all postseason.

I'm taking about the power. I think he only hit one double.

We need his power to surface and do damage.

Like his stroke in the 4th? That power?

Then my bad. I'm obviously not remembering well. I'll eat crow on that one.

He just doesn't look like the same guy, and he hasn't for about the last 4 weeks. Going back to Sept. 10th, he's hit just 3 HR.

Nice to get some looks at their bullpen early all things considered, can't believe they didn't let Tanaka go longer

Please use Correas pay to partially cover Cole. This guy is worthless at the plate.

I really like getting to see Chapman in this game. Especially for George and Brantley.

Let's hope we can pound Paxton like we did at MMP earlier this year

Anyone having a tough time with TexAgs tonight, can't hardly post and reloads are slower than our kick coverage.

Must be a hell of a melt down in premium or zoo grinding everything to a halt

If he wasn't so good defensively, I would be happy to agree. Cannot wait until he leaves.
