Default Astros vs Rangers Quadzilla

To keep the smack off the other threads (as if that was possible)... here's a thread to post knowledge commentary, yo momma jokes, and maybe even a little about the baseball series in.

As always:
THE Truths:
1) IF the Astros win the series, There will be cowboy-ish commentary to the history books.
2) IF the Astros sweep the series, see above.
3) IF the Astros lose the series, they'll still be in first place and still haven't clicked on all cylinders yet.
4) there will be memes, oh yes, there will be memes

As poor as the pitching is currently for the stros , this might actually be an interesting series...

16.5

Play ball!!

Lmao

I will keep an eye on the series. I'm ready to watch playoff baseball though. Astros are playing like crap as of late and the Rangers are irrelevant. I sure hope the Astros start getting it together soon. A sweep would sure be what the doctor ordered!

As always: Rangers will be lucky to score a run.
I expect Astro pitchers to throw three perfect games.
The Rangers may never get to hit since the Astro's bat first.

I mean, the Astro's have won what is it now, 80 games in a row?

Oh wait.

Play ball. Let's have some fun.

A sweep of the farm team might just get the Stros on a roll again and propel them right on into the world series.

That was a dirty play by Altuve. Totally intentional

He was injured for 10 weeks with some kind of stomach strain. He's been pretty solid

That was ballsy, and well executed. Lots of credit to Chirenos on that one.

Sure was ballsy. I wouldn't have floated anything near Altuve like that, but they got him looking for something away and surprised him with that inside pitch.

Missed the game last night(one of very few this year), looking at the box score, more of the same. Hopefully this team can return to full strength by the end of the month. It looks like what would have been Sept call ups are getting their chances now and not performing at all. Guduan, hasnt gotten an out in a couple of weeks it seems. 3 lefties in the bullpen and not one of them worth a flip. Good game by Cole for the Rangers.

I'm almost convinced that hinch has sipp in disguise as liriano.

Rangers need to understand...these hit guys isn't on purpose... liriano just sucks this bad...
