DAT 6/15: TEX (Gibson) @ HOU (McCullers) | 7:10 CT
LMJ returns to the rotation tonight. Odorizzi expected to piggyback him if the situation presents itself.

Astros swept a 4-game series from the Rangers in Houston from May 13-16, then turned around and got swept in a 3-game series in Arlington the next weekend.

OTHER TIDBITS:
By expected win-loss, which is largely based on run differential, the Astros (41-24) should have a 5 1/2-game lead on Oakland (37-31) in the AL West. Along those same lines, the Astros are 21-13 against teams above .500, and 16-15 against sub .500 teams. Funny what a shitty bullpen and manager can do.

Since blowing a 5-run lead to the Padres on May 29, the Astros are 10-4. They were 6-3 and averaged 7.2 runs per game (per McTaggart) on the 9-game road trip that ended Sunday with a 14-3 beatdown of Minnesota.

Lastly, frick the Rangers.

Happy Birthday, Dusty Baker!

As a present, the Astros should give him a day off.

I'm excited for Dusty to not walk Adolis Garcia with men on and open base again!

1) I'm saving that gif. It's one of my favorites and I can never find it when I search.

2) We need to beat the Rangers arse this series. Still can't believe they swept us last time. Need to return the favor.

3) How do you think our rotation is gonna look with Lance back? We have 6 now with him, Greinke, Urquidy, Frambaw, Garcia, and Odorizzi.

Sounds like they plan to go with a 6-man rotation for the next 20 days.

What they should do... make Odorizzi a tandem starter / long man.

What they will do... make Garcia a tandem starter / long man and claim it's about limiting his innings.

Any of you baws getting rid of tickets?

I have been to a couple of games and is it just me or since there are no paper tickets they really arent any ushers checking. I sat out by the bullpen both times and maybe it was just because of that.

I'm expecting an L tonight. Seems like every time the offense is crushing it on a road trip, they go into an extended slump of RISP fails when they get back home. Combine that with facing Daddy Kyle tonight.

Just dropping in to say I shamelessly voted straw over trout for the ASG

Trout really doesn't deserve to be a starter this year... sucks for him to be hurt, but those are the breaks.






Straw, meanwhile, has been listening to a lot of Smash Mouth.
