Dang it!
Astros have just dropped there 2nd in a row to the A’s.
5th loss in 6 games.
I should have gone to bed instead of staying up and watching this.
Just ended, after 13 innings.
1:25 am now.
At least the next 2 games start at 3:00 pm central.

Resist discouragement. They have all the components of a championship team. This road trip has been a grueling one. They even look exhausted, but they'll rebound. I'm sure you remember the terrible slump in June. They fought back. They'll do it again.

Yep, team is starting to get complacent under the glow of  it's own press.  They had a chance to deal a death blow this weekend, instead they are giving the A's hope.

We'll try.  But I still have memories of 1998.  In '98 we secured the help of Randy Johnson (trade deadline) , and he played masterfully.  Many many pundits had us as WS favories going into the post season.  Problem is, you don't play this game on paper, and we ran into a buzz saw named Kevin Brown in the NLDS.  AJ and Luhnow needs to somehow breath some life into what I am thinking is becoming a complacent team.

Baseball is such a funny game.  Thanks to Jeff Luhnow a post trade deadline team has been amassed, that might be the best in the past 20 years.   A week or so later, ......  It loses 5 in a row.

The baseball gods hath urinated on us?

Playing 3 games in less than 24 hours will take the wind out of just about any team.  And Cole missing a turn on the mound didn't help matters much either.  I'm not worried.

Goshdarnnit!

Those Astros had a simple chore in front of them, sweep 4 games from the damn A's to help out the Rays....

Can't you Texans get anything done??
