Astros have a ton of innings to cover out of the pen now, the rest of this game and all of tomorrow's game.

feels like the Astros have gotten the better of BABIP / umpire strike calls and the lead is bigger than it should be.

Is it in his contract that Buck always has to say “the Hall of Famer” John Smoltz? Also in Fox football games, same thing for Troy Aikman.
He was on the Pardon My Take podcast this week - he is a fantastic guest in that he swears, plays along with their jokes even when they are at his expense and comes off as a completely different person than his broadcaster persona - and he clearly likes both guys so I suspect he is gassing them up. That said, he admitted he is closest with Aikman.

I just started watching the TV feed after listening to the game. Cedarstrom's strike zone seemed ok this past inning - how has it been the rest of the game?

You could tell he was gonna swing at the next pitch whatever it was so he could go to the dugout and puke.

For 140 years, going up the middle was a hit. Now shifts have changed that and I'm still not used to it. Bill Mueller's hit off Rivera might have been a groundout if the game were played 15 years later.

Joe Smith fact: in his spare time, Joe Smith enjoys slices of plain Wonder Bread, glasses of whole milk and reading the Garfield comic strips. He thinks the Mondays and lasagna bits are laugh aloud funny.
