  1. The announcers and coverage are annoying me. So does Kershaw’s windup.

    Honestly Chip, I’m not a fan of the design. It’s distracting.


  2. So far the Astros look intimidated, like they were in New York. That’s a bad omen.

    Springer hasn’t hit jack in quite a while.


  3. Kershaw looks every bit as good as he’s ever been. Springer continues to look overmatched at the plate. Granted Kershaw is one of the most dominant pitchers in baseball history.


    • Thought the pitches to Altuve were: One ball was called a strike, and one strike was called a ball. He was struck out on a pitch that was called a ball on the prior pitches. Very inconsistent. Roberts was on the steps ready to get thrown out it appeared due to inconsistent calls.


  4. The strike zone is MUCH wider than the ALCS…Astros are going to have to adjust…AND…Kershaw/Dodgers are taking a page out of the Astros’ playbook. How many curve balls have the Astros seen?


  5. The reason why the strike zone is “inconsistent” is Cuzzi is following orders from “above”. The fix is in; we’re just going to have to overcome it.


  6. Chip, in gm 7 of ALCS GS smashed a solid base hit that the announcer mentioned how he shortened his swing. It was a solid hit. How does Hinch convince him to make adj by not trying to crush every pitch. Announcers tonite called him out ‘Wild swinging’ GS is a much better hitter than what we are seeing thus far. When he’s not grooving it’s hard to watch thinking he could help himself by slowing down & showing better plate discipline


    • Wish DK would have just focused on getting Turner out rather than lobbing the ball to 1st base a couple of times. Have we said it lately that Kershaw looks locked in?


  7. Is there anyone else who believes that we can hit their relievers? We were able to get to a few of the Yankee relievers weren’t we? Just wanted someone else’s opinion.


  8. I believe I heard the Stros hit high velocity pitching better than any tm out there. The first half the tm did just that, more of a struggle 2nd half and post season though. If this tm hit like they did the first half this series would be over in 4 or 5 I honestly believe


  9. The walk killed keuchel as he lost focus and there you have the inevitable result. They should take batting practice against McCullers so they ca learn to hit a curve ball.
