A little early offense for the Astros! Nice to see!

I hope that they keep this up!

And - the Rangers are 5 back of the Astros thanks to a favorable schedule and the Stros getting swept in Cleveland. Gonna be an interesting month in the AL West.

Who knew?

Not surprising. You had to know they'd get on a bit of a roll at some point and the Astros would go through a bit of a funk.

Hopefully the Astros get back on track vs Detroit the next few days.

And - the Rangers begin what will be a key three week stretch. 20 games with 15 against teams .500 or better... including 6 against your heroes in back-to-back weekends. Get a break against some dogs but finish up with 13 of the 16 games before the All Star break against winning teams as well. They took advantage of some bad teams to get back into this thing over the last few weeks although it took that sweep by Cleveland to get them within 5. I think we're about to see what they really are between now and the All Star break. 43 games that could well define a season.

i wonder if the Marlins will try to sell their few assets soon to reload that barren farm system?

Holy tits, Correa just made a ridiculously awesome play that I hope to find a video of.

Very, very nice!

Harper fan after this. What a bitch by Strickland. His own catcher didn't even have his back after this punk move.

That's very sad to see grown men conducting themselves like that on Memorial Day.... save it for another day. You have to think about all the kids and families that attended that game to see a good and honest game on their day off. Some people really don't have any respect.

Kids and families go on other days besides Memorial day. What's your point?
