Jesus son of Joseph could we maybe discuss Eli Manning's Hall of Fame chances? Please? I mean, anything else?

Eli was a far better player than Charlie.

Tanaka v Greinke in the cold

In general I favor Astros pitching approach - though I picked the Yanks.

Tanaka out at 68 pitches in Game 1 was downright strange - but lets see if that benefits him tonight. 

I wont even say its over if Yanks lose tonight.  Each game is so close in matchup that a 3-game run by either team is not  surprising.  Trend shows about 61% of game three winnners (at 1-1) get the series.

Neither starter has looked sharp thus far, for all that one of them has had more damage done against him than the other.

Go Houston!

3 games to 1, Houston leads. Can't rule the Yankees out, though. They've been known to win 3 in a row, after all.

But the Yankees fielding was so sloppy tonight! 4 errors and a couple other plays that could or should have been errorrs. They'll have to play far more solidly tomorrow to win, I would expect.

It ain't over til the fat lady gets seconds at the all you can eat buffet, and she's working on thirds.

Ys had better hope they get some old juiced balls pronto, because if you take the juice out of the baseball and resort to playing baseball, the Astros play baseball a lot better than the Yankees.

Balls get juiced when pitchers miss location.

Just magically happened more this year than any prior year for teams all over the country.

Snark noted - but I was speaking to this series.

Just a horrible pitch on the Correa HR last night.

Neither pitcher was sharp in the first, same as yesterday.

The results were reversed.

Back to Houston.

Its Peacock

What would be interesting is if the game gets into 11th 12th innings - then Cole coming in is a hammer.
