Well they nearly made it. But this time the horrible pitching was too much.

The Rays are flashing some big time leather tonight. Could be headed for a deep South series.

So Altuve appears to have a case of the yips which is causing major issues for the Astros. As someone who made fun of Darvish during the' '17 WS, I have zero sympathy for him.

No idea but his team mate Max Fried is Jewish so I doubt it's mindless appropriation even if Pache isn't.

Agreed. Maybe it's guilt.

What did Altuve do to Darvish? Are you thinking of Gurriel?

I'm going to root for the Rays to win it all but anyone except the Astro's and I'll be happy. Which seems very likely at this point.

Altuve didn't participate. Also, the phrase used was "made fun of."

Dodgers finally some pitching at least through 7 innings. Only the second time in the 4 games but the bullpen really did the job. And did you see that catch by Mookie!!

Finally some pitching!!!! May was not good, for some reason he went away from the pitch that he's good at and tried to use pitches he rarely used. But fortunately Roberts pulled him early and then things got underway.

I do totally understand why Sox fans were upset with the Betts trade as that player is amazing. His catch to cause a double play (next time tag up Ozuna) was probably the play of the season. It's like it turned him around as he was able to get an infield hit and while he eventually was out, he was still responsible for a run for the Dodgers.

Things are looking up a little, but who knows what team will show up today.

Oh yeah, Betts is a generational player. Definitely bittersweet to watch his double play.

But you know, John Henry needs a bigger yacht, so what can you do, right?

Charlie Morton pitched great yesterday. I was a bit surprised when he got lifted.

Good run for a very injury depleted team.
