I'll be back in Houston late August and I'm planning on going to the August 29th game against the Athletics. I'm leaning towards Crawford Boxes tickets (Want to get Shake Shack and maybe a ball during BP or the game itself). Is this a good seat or should I look elsewhere? Should I buy the tickets now or wait closer to the game itself?

Crawford Box tix are amazing

Rangers fans are Astros fans that lost their way after the Nolan Ryan years, and that if they repent their ways and ask Orbit for forgiveness they can be brought back into the flock

Thanks for the awesome game Verlander and Astros.

He had a couple of good games right when he got called back up but yeah he needs to be sent down asap. He is an automatic bad out.

So are we going to be buyers again this year at the trade deadline, or stand firm? Feels like the team could still use relief help and maybe another bat

Give me a Zach Britton please - I think we're fine without the bat - Kemp can slot in for Marisnick

I'm sad Keuchel is fully dead but at least Rondon has looked decent as the new closer

We locked up the season series with the Rangers today which is also good

JV totally caught it too.

It's sad that Dallas = :fork: but I'm not sure what else we can do with him besides ride out the season with him as our #5 and push him back to the pen in the playoffs. There's no way they can ignore the bullpen at the deadline this year, though. The only thing they have going for them is that Peacock and McHugh can go long. Giles and Devo are as good as they're gonna get (which isn't good enough for a dynasty bullpen), Harris also = :fork:, Sipp and Smith are garbagemen, and Rondon has too small of a sample to put all the eggs in that basket.

That said, despite everything going "wrong" for the Stros thus far, they're on pace to win about 100 games again. This year's team slogan should be "Just get to October."
