Excuse me, but George who? Odd isn’t it, how a win on opening day can cause you to forget an entire pre-season of frustration? At least for an evening.
The Astros have this opening day stuff down! If everyday was opening day, Houston would never have another problem!
Yes, even Bo Porter can bask in the success with his all-time opening day record is 2-0.
Let’s remember, though, that the Astros were 8-2 winners last opening day over the Texas Rangers, then promptly scrambled back for two shutout losses en route to a six-game losing streak. Let’s don’t talk about Yu Darvish.
Some of you may have seen Tuesday’s game. Others of us struggled along on MLB Gameday. Still others may be just learning now about the 6-2 win in front of 42,117 fans.
Yeah, I noticed the Astros had 11 Ks and one BB. Yes, they were 2-for-9 with runners in scoring position. But forget that, at least for the next 24 hours.
Save your rants for another day, there’ll likely be plenty. For one day, though, celebrate with what went right for the 1-0 Astros.
