The hate CJ Nitkowski has for the Astros is really something. MLB Radio on SiriusXM is very entertaining. Such a baby. No credit. The umps stole the series. They are evil because of Taubmann.


I listened to that blowhard in the way into work this morning - it does seem like all media is just polar opposite the stros

CJ is just representing Rangers fans.

Long way to go to win this thing.


I will say this though. With Verlanders 0-5 World Series Record and 1-3 this postseason off a Cy Young season, it sure feels like the perfect opportunity for a great person and great baseball player to right those wrongs and have a career altering performance to bring home the trophy.

would be really freakin awesome.

Go 35. Do it.

I've never heard a former player-turned-analyst who knows less about baseball than CJ. And his hate for everything Astros is really just embarrassing, but his lack of maturity and self-awareness will just embolden him.

Not sure if this is accurate but I don't think he has closed out a series for us yet.

2017 Game 6 WS - Lost
2019 - Game 4 ALDS - Lost
2019 - Game 5 ALCS - Lost

Pirates ownership finally had enough of seeing Pirates pitchers dealt or signed to the Astros and only to become WS game winners, All-Stars and Cy-Young candidates...

all those #metoo soldiers that were itching to smear the astros....you just had bare naked boobies on live television for little cadeyn and hayleign to see. how will they explain this atrocity while maintaining an ounce of dignity?


Those boobs were a sign of feminist freedom unshackled from the rules governed by patriarchal society

Unshackled, literally...

Why is one woman getting all the 'credit'? Didn't two women participate? I didn't realize it was two different women until I saw Clay Travis' video on twitter.

They ****ing lost 3 games at home and only scored 3 runs combined. But yeah, it's the umpires.

Umpire suckage goes both ways

Can JV figure out his 1st inning issues? Guaranteed the Nats will be aggressive. It's amazing with all the data they seemingly do not understand what he does differently to start a game.

No amount of data and statistical analysis gonna fix mental roadblocks. This is something JV gotta figure out on his own.

What's really nice about the last 3 games is it has not been one player dominating for the Astros. It has been someone different each game. That's tough to beat if it keeps going.

I love the whole...DC has waited since 1933 to see their team play in the WS.

Turns out not only did they not see a W, but they never even saw their team with a lead.

Game 6 won't even be close. Our offense decided to fix their plate approach two games ago after swinging for the fences the entire playoffs up until they point. Despite that, we hit Strasburg harder than anyone during the slump.

What I heard this morning sounded like an even more ******ed version of "The View". He was harping and *****ing and moaning for probably 5-10 minutes about how the Astros handled this Taubman thing. And just when you would think he was finished making his point, he'd start back in on it again from the beginning.

I've seen it mentioned on twitter today, but the Astros have to visit the White House if they win. Can you imagine the party he'll throw just to spite the DC crowd (even if there were boos in Minute Maid last night).

I am sad to say it, but this series is over, and I wouldn't be shocked if we got swept. They hit the ball. They've shown they can hit our two aces and will probably destroy Greinke and whoever else we throw out there. It sucks.

Bump?
I'm waiting til the World Series ends, then I say we send this thread out in style bumping the best of the bleeders from game 2.

But we've hit 6 HRs since then. Looks like they're swinging for the fences to me.

I believe he was the same guy that was crying that firing Taubman wasn't enough and that Luhnow and the Astros need to pay a heavy fine for their crime against humanity.

I think you are right. That whole show has got to **** since Eduardo Perez hasn't been on the past few weeks.

Yes, the Astros bungled the situation from the start. But they've issued apologies and fired the guy that did it. What are they supposed to do now?? Do they want a literal public hanging of some sort? Are the Astros the only professional organization that have signed accused domestic violence offenders??
