Stay warm brotha.

The key to this series is to get all the games in so we don't have to come back later in the year on an off day.

Tuesday is the only game looking in jeopardy. Thursday is a "business man's special" so we could always play two. Friday is an off day but Saturday is in Monterey

Indians came into town. Played their best ball. Got a ton of breaks. Only managed a split.

That's a good point. If we do get rained out on Tuesday, could play two on Thursday or make it up Friday early afternoon. Would much rather do that then throw our rotation out of balance in the second half of the year and have to miss an off day.

Every team the Astros have played at the they have played them were .500 or over. It's only the A's who have dropped below at 14-16.

The Astros are 17-11!

That's pretty incredible. This team is good.

I believe they said on the radio yesterday we're the only team they have played >.500 and we swept them

25 of their 28 games have been against teams under .500.

Not saying they are't good, but their 17-11 is a little different than our 17-11.

They will still be a force when they get healthy.

He's so good. Jeff was so far ahead of the curve here.

Well placed pun, given that Pressly has the highest spin rate of any curveball in baseball.

Pretty sure we had posters complaining when we traded for him

I don't think there were many complainers as much as there were just those of us wondering who the hell he was and whether or not we should've been excited.

When Springer hit that 473 foot HR off Pressly in 2017, my first thought was "if we can trade for this guy next year and work with him on his spin/mechanics/pitch selection, he'll be a great reliever".

But it was our guys that had to fight for the split having dropped the first two. Last night's game was a good one to pull out late. It would be tough hitting the road having dropped 3-4 to the Indians.

Yep

Thought we traded for this guy at first
Which now I'm surprised his last year in baseball was 2017 considering it was his career year

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.

Man I love Brantley's bat.

But his fielding is very lackluster at times and his arm seems very meh. That was not a fast runner on a hard hit ball and a perfect bounce off the wall and he wasn't even close to throwing that guy out.

He's had several plays this year that I think are borderline just being lazy getting to baseballs
