Here's a hot take: Start McCullers instead of Peacock

I just hope they actually put McHugh on the roster this series

I read Martes name kicked around. McHugh deserves to be there far more than him.

Morton to start game 3 with Peacock/McCullers game 4

Very nice we were able to clinch without using Keuchel.

I feel like we have the old Lance back finally.

I'm really excited about this guys.

My marriage is probably about to be over, a bombshell my wife dropped on me last week from nowhere, and right now this playoff run is really holding me up.

Even if we lose, I'm just happy we're here.

I know that's a bit much to be sharing on our dead comedy forum, but following along and posting with my goon Astro buddies is really going to help. You're all great and our team is cool and good.

Sorry to hear what you're going through. Lord knows I've been pretty close to the same situation with my wife. Stay strong buddy.

I feel like Kershaw and (I hope) Verlander will cancel each other out so to speak. It's the games started by none of these 2 that will decide the series.

Excuses like "It's Kershaw, what can you do?" work in the regular season but if you want to win a championship you eventually have to get to guys who aren't normally gotten to. See: the Yankees and Dodgers getting to Keuchel

If we just wait around for the weak link in the Dodgers rotation then welp we're hosed because there really isn't one. This is a "historically great offense" and they should be able to get hits even against the best pitchers at least some of the time

To me, there is a huge drop off between Kershaw and Hill, Darvish and Wood. Our bats should score against those guys.

Of course you can say the same between Verlander and our other 3. Tonight is a must win.

Here's a column regarding this whole Yuli/Darvish business. It sums up my thoughts on the matter.

Yuli turned us from the fun-loving awesome dinger hitting Stros helping to life a city after a disaster to basically Chief Wahoo and the Redskins.

God dammit Yuli.

Not really. Both sides have said their peace and Yuli will be punished. He will miss 5 games worth of pay.

Let's focus on the upcoming games and stay positive about our team.

Has anyone received orders from MLB.com yet? Still waiting on my hat and WS champs fleece (the last one is probably stupid, but don't give a gently caress).

Oh yeah man. I got my hat and shirt about 4 days or so after I ordered it back on Nov. 2nd.
