Also I'm call Busch league bs if Scherzer starts tomorrow. You don't go from not being able to lift your arm to throwing WS game 7.

A cortizone shot can do some amazing *****
But it's best to get some runners on base and make him think about it.

Altuve striking out with runners and second and third had more of an impact on the game than the play at first.

Greinke is in a rough spot tomorrow. If he coughs it up tomorrow he may get run out of town. That was a heavy price we paid and he will get scapegoated for not being a savior. It would be wrong but that will be the sentiment.


If we lose this WS, I doubt Greinke would be the scapegoat
Agreed... if we lose, JV and the bats will take the brunt of it.

OH FFS Frank, if it's the World Series or not you apply the rules as written. You don't let things go because you believe "the world is watching."

A-Rod is a chode arguing the call was wrong. We get it dude we know who you want to win. Just put on your W hat and jersey and stop trying to hide it.

Good point. I was trying to think rationally for a moment, my bad.

It always seems like the Astros have to have their backs up against the wall before they deliver the knockout blow. They will be cruising in a series, lose focus, let the other team back in it, then pull it out in game 6 or 7 in dramatic fashion. They just don't seem to have that killer instinct to straight up destroy teams in a playoff series. What they do have is the ability to be clutch when it matters. It's extremely frustrating for fans but makes for memorable games. I hope they can pull it off tomorrow.

Zombie Greinke versus neck flare-up Scherzer tomorrow. Really, who would you pick?
Zombie all the way. He's going to find a way to go six or seven with 2 runs.

If we can't score 4 or 5 runs behind him with again SP and a crap bullpen (feat. 50 Cent Rodney) we don't deserve to win anyway.


Doubt we see any of their crappy bullpen guys tomorrow
maybe so, but I doubt a guy just got a Cortizone shot for back spasms is going to go very deep.


I hope so. I'm hoping Strasburg was just amazing and our bats wake up tomorrow.

Baseball is a painful game

No way Scherzer will be effective tomorrow. A pinched nerve causes muscle weakness. That's why he was warming up tonight. They know he's not going 7 innings tomorrow.

Hope the team sleeps at the stadium tonight and something inspirational happens and wakes up their bats. Stuff movies are made of.

My how quickly y'all forgot that we would not have made the WS if It weren't for Verlander and we wouldn't have made it this far without him...


Not disputing the normal season, but he fell apart the 2nd time he pitched in both the ALDS and ALCS as well.

obviously we couldn't have made it to either World Series without JV, so obviously there's that...

But if we win tomorrow, the Astros will have two WS titles despite JV, not at all because of him.

Yep - this at bat was the key play of the game.

I'm on the couch and I don't know where the remote is laying. Alexa turned off the lights just before the Mount Rushmore of Douch came on the tv.

A-Rod after game 5, Nats didn't hit. Papi - cause they got run over by Cole train, give the man credit. A-Rod - but it is still their job to hit, it is what they are paid to do.

Me too because if they lose to Scherzer prepare for the next schilling'esque story we'll have to hear about for the next 20 years.

From not being able to put on clothes to winning game seven of the WS.

****, I even heard it in joe bucks voice while I typed it.

I know it's been 25 years since the Rockets made us Clutch City. But what's up with DC jacking the Clutch nickname from us?

will game 7 be (regardless of who wins)?

1) a close low scoring game ( like 5-3 or 4-2)

2) a blow out (either team wins by 6+)

3) a close high scoring game (like 9-7 or 10-8)

Well streak is over. Time to start a new one tomorrow.

And all you morose mofos who quit on the guys early need to pack your **** and go or quit acting like a bunch of Aggie football fans. These are the mother****ing world champion Houston Astros.


Not yet.


As in, they've been on this stage and won two years ago, as opposed to 1939.

Pretty much everyone but Astros fans think the call was atrocious.

Why is the media making a big deal about a play that turned out to be irrelevant to the outcome now?
To get attention.

What did you think the media's job was, to report relevant information?


Well the world would have been a poorer place if we hadn't known Soto just turned 21.
