At least 2005 gave us the 18 inning game that Brad Ausmus, of all the people in the entire baseball-playing world, tied with a HR in the 9th

But that world series hurt a ton, yeah

Still, 2 more wins. Let's go.

I kind of want to make a av with the trophy in it but I'd never turn down a Chirurgeon Springer av

One time when I was very young I went on a cubs scout trip to Houston; we got to go to the Astrodome field and Biggio and Bagwell talked to us. Such a long time waiting then til now.

I might be the only Astros fan who doesn't hate the Rangers outside games we're playing them since growing up they were just sort of oafishly losing while wasting ARod.

My "gently caress the" rankings are basically

Yankees

Cardinals
Red Sox

I'm watching game 5 for probably the 20th time since it happened

Thanks; she had a good life. Unfortunately this was the only Colt 45s program she had, but I also have a program from the 1957 Cotton Bowl, which was TCU vs Jim Brown-led Syracuse. I'll probably end up uploading some of that to TFF at some point

I'll start getting more pics up tomorrow, I'm beat after going through two storerooms worth of stuff.

How do you underrate a guy who gave up 117 hits and 71 runs in 121 major league innings and earned an ERA+ of 77? He had a WHIP of over 1.3 for god's sake

To be clear I did not mean that the Astros were cheaping out, I meant we were lucky to have a player like that still in his arb years for such a relatively low price

He is going to get PAID soon and I hope we're the ones that do it

This is how underdogs turn hated but gently caress if I care; I'm prepared to lean in to being the villain

On the one hand it is definitely a bit early to be crowning ourselves division champions, but we did win the division by 21 games last year. No team came close to improving that much even if you count on a full MVP season from Trout and Ohtani being good, and the Astros didn't exactly lose a ton of production either (and added Gerrit Cole).

Still you can never predict injuries and the like. Hopefully Correa's isn't going to turn in to anything serious.

Something to enjoy, anyway

quote:

Of note is Gerrit Cole, who struck out 14 batters on Friday, giving him 36 K's for the season. That's the most by any pitcher in his first three games with a team since the mound was moved to its current distance in 1893, according to Elias Sports Bureau research.
