I miss the 100 loss seasons. Having the best record in baseball sucks.

Holy lord almighty, I was so busy watching this game vs. the Indians that I just now tuned in to realize the legendary Zedding the Cavs are giving to Boston.

That's crazy insane, Weird Science style.

Lindor makes a terrific play to rob Altuve of a single, and Correa follows it with an opposite field HR!

Those two young SS's are going to be a lot of fun to watch for many years, my friends.

Having said that, screw you, Lindor! That HR could have tied the game.

Very nice escape for Musgrove there! Love me some strike-em-out-throw-em-out double plays.

Go Astros.

Congratulations to Carlos the Elder!

Top 50 all-time in the HR category. Piazza, he's coming for you!

Note to self: acquire a Yuli wig by any means necessary. Peaceful solutions being the priority, but when it comes to that wig, anything goes.

Well DAMN!

This win felt good. Strong start for Musgrove tonight, and even when Devo got into some bases loaded-no outs-trouble, found a way to get out of it.

Nice to see Giles nail it down at the end, too.

Now to get me a Yuli wig...

Well damn, Lance is human after all. There goes his 24-inning scoreless streak.

I mean...is anybody watching this game?

They hit for a team cycle in one inning last night, which was awesome, but what they're doing today...

I don't even have words. Just....wow.

Wow.

So now they get to go into Arlington to play that other Texas team.

Good news is, other than the huge lead in the division and the fact they're playing so well right now, both Dallas and Lance will be starting in this series. Should be a good one...assuming we beat the taint piss out of the Rangers, of course.

Go Astros!

Springer's second dinger from yesterday still hasn't landed, so I hear.
