7 I like Verlander tonight. Hill's a decent pitcher, but he always seems to pitch just good enough to lose.

17 Thank you guys for providing me with a Unique Baseball experience last year...I was in Tokyo last year for games 6 & 7 and believe it or not ...no access to the games...it was on between 8-12 in the morning i realized it late in Game 6 about the World Series thread...but for Game 7 i was walking around downtown listening to jams and reading the thread for the whole game (mobile hotspot) they close all the big streets downtown which is pretty cool and finally the last out was over and Cubs Win was burning my eyes ...took my ear buds off and yelled Cubs Win spontaneously and all the locals around me just stopped and stared.... you called a great game ...it was awesome

20 What's really scary tonight is Hill's pitching arm

Posted by: boulder terlit hobo at October 31, 2017 03:26 PM (6q+dR)

21 Okay, I'm torn. I want the Astros to win the Series so they should nail it down tonight. But a seventh game would also be nice because it's a looong time til spring training.

24 Dodgers at bat. One pitch, one pop up, one out. Good start.

25 That coat-hook-shadow thing has gotten me about three times. Now I make a special note when I see that type of coat hook, just to be prepared for the spider-shadow it will make later. Posted by: ace at October 31, 2017 08:20 PM (8rNrN) --Deserve's got nuthin' to do with it. (At least that's what I thought about the Yankees in 2001.) Still, unlike NYC, Houston has had a striking lack of championships. Rockets last won their (only?) titles in 1994-95, thanks to Michael Jordan's stint with the Birmingham Barons. Neither the Oilers nor the Texans have even played in the Super Bowl. AFAIK the University of Houston never won a championship (though Andre Ware won a Heisman). Pretty pathetic for such a big city.

26 Verlander has Kate Upton. He doesn't deserve any MORE big nights. Go Dodgers. I want to see a seventh game and don't care at that point who wins.

35 Verlander: 7 pitches, 3 outs. Not bad.

Posted by: JTB at October 31, 2017 03:32 PM (V+03K)

36 Is Verlander the one who pitches like an octopus falling out of a tree?

Posted by: casual Astros fan at October 31, 2017 03:33 PM (7eciU)

37 Seven pitches and three outs. Economical.

I'm a bit chagrined I even knew it was going on, but local news was covering it for the past week and a half so it was hard to avoid.

44 Rockets last won their (only?) titles in 1994-95, thanks to Michael Jordan's stint with the Birmingham Barons. Pretty sure it was thanks to Hakeem's ability to block shots and Mario Elie's ability to drain 3's from across state lines Not that I have opinions about obnoxious twats who say "muh Jordan" whenever the 1994-5 season is brought up . . .

Posted by: Cloyd Freud, Unemployed at October 31, 2017 04:13 PM (398bZ)

96 Not a fan of his, but I do respect how Yasiel Puig has put the team on his back -- at least, emotionally. He guaranteed a Game 7 after Sunday's loss, and he was first to the field yesterday morning to take batting practice. And he got a hit tonight, first time at bat!

Posted by: Shopgirl at October 31, 2017 04:13 PM (vj22Z)

101 It would be an veryironic finish; 1-0. That pitch by rich was almost perfect. He needs to throw that again and keep his pitches low. Kudos to springer for roping that.

103 I confess never watched Southpark. By the way, Mrs. E wrapped her stand on the Angelina River with camo burlap today and a deer just watched her for 10 minutes. She told Mrs. Deer to come back Saturday and bring her male friends. And of course Go Astros!

104 Except for game 1, I've gotta say the strike zones have been pretty consistent. Certainly compared to some of them during the regular season. Lets you concentrate on the players not mercurial umps with a sense of whimsy.

105 I am not a Dodger hater- I always root for the WS team that hasn't won one or hasn't won one in, like,109 years. I guess I never felt I should automatically cheer for the NL team because my team is in the NL (or the AL, when the Crew was in the AL.) because the teams you do hate are the ones in your division that are a pain in the ass all season. I mean, really, do Red Sox fans root for the Yankees in the postseason (and vice versa) after cursing them all season long? Or do you root for the team in the other league that hasn't made you suffer all season?

They are no longer mentioned by us as the DisAstros (till the start of next season)...

121 Qmark, it surprises me that you couldn't watch the WS in Japan, considering how many Japanese players are playing for MLB teams. it's not like being, say, Belgium. Exactly what i thought...but early in the morning was not prime sports bar time...... didn't really know anyone..but that made it even more of an adventure but i was happy walking around with my delicious Kohi and steamed buns...LOL

And I was cheering against div rivals Yankees and Boston but don't mind pulling for the AL and Astros now. Mind you, the guy that engineered the Jays' two season runs the three season ago and then dumped by management is working for L.A. so I'd be happy for him if L.A. does pull it off.

136 Critical 2 innings for Dodgers. Hill usually doesn't get through 6 innings. Verlander looks great, but pitch count is a bit high (though he can easily get up to 120+ tonight). I know the Astros don't want to get into their pen prior to the 8th and would hope Verlander could get a complete game (So rare in today's game)...

145 I had a friend that loved VWs. The engine went out on a trip to CA. He got back up to WA state, picked up a rebuilt engine and got back down to the van. Put in the new engine and started back home. It caught on fire. That was the last VW he owned. I had one that was aptly named Hitler's Revenge. I left it by Bridge of the Gods. I put the title in the glove box and wrote "Title in glove box" on the side using a lumber crayon. When I went back there in a half hour, it was gone. And that was my last VW.

147 exdem13: "Bitching about the ref calling strikes, a cherished part of America's Pastime!" It seems like the umpiring has been quite good for a few years now, especially with instant replay validation. It pretty much removes outright game-fixing. Basketball officiating is the worst (and probably the most difficult). But football was getting pretty bogged down with Instant Replay. They may have gone a bridge too far. I guess someone who still watches it could offer a current opinion.

179 When the whole kneeling thing blew up in the NFL a month or so ago, I wrote letters expressing my done-ness with the NFL, addressed to: NFL NFLPA Kansas City Chiefs Denver Broncos. Of the four, only the Broncos gave me the courtesy of a response. An inadequate response for sure (they "request" that their players respect the National Anthem but "respect" the player's bullshirt "free speech" rights) but at least it was a response. And of course, I live in suburban KC and added to the Chiefs letter that I would vigorously oppose any public funding for any stadium improvements. They probably didn't like that very much. Heh.

Yes, but you have to be nice about it. Also can't run over the catcher any more. But the catcher can't block the plate either. It's the new kinder, gentler baseball.
