Oops. I just started another thread. I’ll ask the moderator’s to erase it.

ETA: Looks like I’ve got an in with the moderators, or they know to watch out for me.

Yep. You typed that before I could.

Lucky for you I know some people.

1-0 As

I hate that this herky-jerky catcher got that call. He boxed the frame then jerked it back to the zone. It was a strike, but he didn’t deserve that call at all.

Manes generally is tough on us too.

Manea has great numbers against the Astros except one: wins. He’s pretty well owned Astros hitters, but has a record of 3-6 in 16 starts.

Garcia with a 1-2-3 second

1-0 A’s

My memory is how he is against our hitters, not W-L

6 up, 6 down so far

Astros go quietly walk on six pitches

Mine too. Just pointing out that while pitching well, he’s not had much game success against the Astros.

Garcia walks the leadoff hitter in the 3rd

Batting .190something

Maldy, Tucker and Yuli hit him, everybody else not so much

I always liked Tony Kemp as an Astros, and he certainly brought something on the table. But he still has that giant uppercut swing. It doesn’t do him any favors.
