Guys, it's only the first inning. Once the Rays get into the soft underbelly of the Astros' overworked pen and string a couple...

Oh, who am I kidding? This is an absolute disaster. Glasnow's gonna give himself a swirlie in the locker room when this inning's over. If he survives it.

Is Glasnow tipping? Might be a wider stance when it’s breaking stuff, more compact when throwing heat. More specifically, look at the arms and elbows at the set position prior to release.

Might be just me but if there’s any team I’d expect to pick up on this, it’s Houston. And yeah, that’s a compliment.

So would the pitching matchups be Paxton/Greinke, Tanaka/Verlander, Severino/Cole for the first 3 games?
That will definitely be how HOU lines it up, NY could maybe flip Tanaka to game 1 so that his second game would be in YS.

Reddick's single in the 7th was the Astros' first hit since the 1st. They know how to bunch 'em, I guess?
