I'm watching the games between Kansas City and Toronto from yesterday. Check out Roberto Osuna grabs the ball in the eighth inning and runs down Moustakas.

I'm not into Toronto but love Roberto!

Abreu has an amazing night and literally every headline this morning is about Giancarlo.

This time last year I already had my predictions for the playoffs. This year, I can't figure out the NL East at all. I'll try to get some predictions up this weekend, but no promises.

I'm fairly clueless. The Jays were looking good. I was briefly paying attention to the Mets giving the Nationals a hard time but beyond that my attention span has trailed off.

Now Roberto was arrested and is being charged after a domestic.

Being married is a lot of work and of course you go through times where you get cranky but you need to vent that anger somewhere else folks.

I think the Jays will be fine but this is still crappy and a mess.

Huh, so I'm exhausted yesterday and not enjoying my job. The boss is being a jerk and I'd kind of like to abandon her.

She drags me around the Houstn Zoo and I can barely stay awake. Then we go to Minute Maid stadium for the second game of three we are watching.

I fall asleep in the seat feel a bit better after a nap. I feel like I'm watching the game. I'm kind of amused that the Mariners are winning because it annoys the boss who is there to see the Astros.

This morning I see some one who works with my boss at her job posts, "Are you going to a game? Maybe you'll see Osuna."

I thought he was in jail in Toronto or something. I guess I was sitting in a seat at Minute Maid stadium while he pitched last night. Possibly catatonic.

Enough of the fastball pitching. Every batter in every batting cage prepares for fastballs. Mix it up.

Sounds like you're onto something you should probably coach or something.

I watched him today and knew what was going on. Might have been the beer.

i don't watch him much but when i did, i noticed that.. he has balls. he goes with the fastball when everybody knows it's coming and yet he gets the out.

but don't think that that is over because it didn't work out today, he's probably warming up.. he was framed in toronto by some canadian gold digger. and i will not read anything else about this matter so don't even try to contradict me.

lol, as if he wasn't excited to have Osuna instead of Giles.

Giles really sucked. If Giles had been the closer during the WS the Astros wouldn't have won it.

I'm pretty sure Verlander is excited to know Giles will not f*ck up his solid starts with a shitty work in the ninth anymore.

Some morans are trying to blame him for yesterday's loss. I presume they either did not watch him and/or know even less about baseball than me. Impressive, either way they won't even sign a name to the article.

well, i didnt watch it but saw he got the L. HR in the 10th right?

that's ok. he'll bounce back i guess, he's not pitched in 3 months? just a couple of games with the Astros now.. and apparently he didnt get the closer job right away, which means they want to watch how he evolves first.

the Astros are preparing for playoffs.. the goal will be to have him at his top for october.

He was pitching well. Dee just managed to get a bat on one. Possibly because like hitred said it was a pretty straight forward fast ball but I credit Dee much more than fault Roburto.
