Still have 2 FS tonight that I can't move to friends and family to save my life.

Anyone know if it's possible to list ballpark app tickets on stubhub?

Log in to your mlb account on a computer. There's an option that links to stubhub. Good luck; I had the same issue yesterday.

Today I turn 44. I would like a win and a homer from #44. That's all.

We all feel the same way about last night.

Our entire ****ing team is due and we have JV on the mound. Take the bleeding to the Rangerettes' offseason thread. LFG.

Snagged some ticket close to home plate an hour before the game when prices dropped. There were a lot of interesting people sitting our section last night. Yankee fans around us were actually pretty cool and not over the top annoying or rude.

Guy wearing Pat Mahomes jersey was acting ridiculous and we thought got kicked out but then was let back in. So many people missed significant parts of the game getting beer. Don't understand why you pay that much money to not watch the game.
Wearing a Mahomes jersey the day before the big game...sounds like dude was looking for a fight.


Guarantee that guy owned a Vince Young Titans jersey too and wore it around on Sundays in the fall

Lots of parallels between this series and WS 2017.
Down 0-1, Springer cold, everyone wanting him to move down in the order. Other bats cold. Verlander pitching game 2.
We've been here before.
Astros will be up 2 games to 1 heading in to game 4. Then it's anyone's ball game.


Difference is we were chalk full of clutch hits until that game.

I feel like we are pressing hard on offense. Close to 1998-2001 levels of pressing.

Based on the sample size we have, are we just unlucky, or are we actually behaving differently?


Probably a little of both. Alvarez smoked a line drive that was 110 mph off bat and turned into a double play, while Torres hit a 93 mph fly ball that ended up being a homerun. That is an example of unlucky, but then guys like Correa and Brantley have not been unlucky, just not very good.

tried to go the mastercard priceless tix route, but they weren't available last night when i went to bed, and are already sold out this morning,, ya'll move fast https://www.priceless.com/sports/product/147154/houston-american-league-postseason-tickets
Damn. I totally forgot about checking on that last night. Oh well, on the waitlist.


It seems I've been rewarded for not watching game 5 in hopes of preserving the lead when I walked in late. I just got an email from the Priceless Cities promotion saying I've been given two tickets as a "priceless surprise for being a loyal customer." Tickets are in my Ballpark app, and yes, I have not been charged. So, my brother (who happens to be in town from Tennessee this weekend) and I will be in section 112, row 31, tonight.

Saw this and thought of Correa.

He should be a power house for us batting 7th. Instead he's more of a powder puff.

Tanaka threw a masterpiece last night - just like Cole has done for us twice and Verlander once. Nobody was going to hit him. Over 7 games, we have more potential masterpieces in our pitching staff than the Yankees.

It will be interesting, but I like the stros.

Also, Alvarez smokes two homeruns tonight and Bregman one.

Springer is 3-25 this post season.
Correa 3-22 this post season.
Zero jacks from YA this post season.

The floodgates will open tonight and JV Ks 10.

Well, after last night's performance by the Yanks maybe that's a good idea.

Good news is Paxton was shelled in the playoffs and shelled at home in MMP this year.

I'll feel pretty good if we even the series tonight and have Cole on the mound in NY.

Agreed. And even though Greinke is 0-2 in playoffs so far, not a bad thing to have him be one of our starters in NY in a crucial game. Need runs runs runs.

Greinke did his job last night, kept us in a winnable game against a tough lineup.

Not having Greinke go 6 solid innings would have had spillover effects to our bullpen, so it's definitely good that we have him.

He also had a bit of bad luck. That first home run is a home run in MMP and no where else. We need tot ale advantage of our park.

Jake gets the start
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.

Yeah that's a bit of a head scratcher. Tucker did fine in his ABs last night.

It probably has to do with how many pop outs JV gets....he feels a lot more comfortable with Jake out there.
