Six spot in the first. Nice to see somebody throwing BP against us.

It goes without saying that we better not lose this game. But I'm going to say it anyway.

"Stros". Because adding the "A" takes too much time.

Whilst I don't disagree with your statement, it's hard to judge Kazmir on this start, regardless of what happens..... sitting for a week between innings can't be easy!

I hope Bryon Scott isn't standing up watching the game at home
"Cocaine is a hell of a drug" - Originated from a famous skit in Dave Chappelle's "Chappelle's Show". The skit would portray Rick James, usually high on cocaine, preforming doing crazy and stupid things, such as smacking Charlie Murphy in the face. Rick James would frequently explain away his actions by saying "Cocaine is a hell of a drug".

Kazmir has come out and challenged Ubaldo to a duel in taking the title of "most looking like your average local high schooler."

They really have to learn how to divide up the week's worth of runs. Five other games this week=11 total. Today? Who knows where this will end! 19 so far in the 6th. :clap:

Tonight will be another example of why the three-inning save is one of the stupidest stats in baseball. Kluber in line for the four-inning save.

If I recall correctly the Rangers scored 30+ a few years back and their reliever still "earned" the save that night. I believe it is still a judement call from the offical scorer, but I know what you mean.

Kluber credited with the win. Brian Shaw will be pissed if his career total comes to 299.

Interesting.

It is the official scorer's decision when the starter doesn't go 5. Guess he's against the three-inning save as well.

How is this dated 4/21? I'm always pretty stoned but I'm pretty sure its 4/20 today.

Whatever. Good win.
