    Justin Verlander traded to the Astros

    Jose Cruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuz, my first "favorite" baseball player! I think he turned 69 this year. I didn't see that no-hitter but I remember it very well, Puhl made that one-handed catch on a ball hit by Mike Scioscia who I always had respect and admiration for which is why even though the...

    Justin Verlander traded to the Astros

    I coulda got it for 40 bucks on eBay on September 3rd. Now they're asking $1,000.00!:oops: Yep, quite a series, great win for the Astros over a fantastic Dodgers ball club. Nice to see two Connecticut boys (Springer and Charlie Morton) contribute as much as they did. As I said before, I'm...

    Justin Verlander traded to the Astros

    Astros needed to wrap it up last night, JV can't do it all himself. Tonight will be interesting. Whatever the end result is, in my 43+ years of being an Astros fan, this was the best year ever. I think they'll be a force to be reckoned with for quite some time and I'm looking forward to that.

    Justin Verlander traded to the Astros

    ""The umps gave (still give) JV a strike zone the size of the Grand Canyon." CM79, if I were a Yankees fan, I probably would have smashed the television today. It sure seemed to me that some balls were called strikes. JV hasn't lost a came since becoming an Astro including three post-season...

    "The umps gave (still give) JV a strike zone the size of the Grand Canyon." I never really watched him until he was an Astro and I gotta say, I did notice that............

    Justin Verlander traded to the Astros

    LOL! I wasn't a big fan of JV when he was with the Tigers but ya gotta admit, he's a pretty darn good pitcher and most teams would be glad to have him. Since the Astros are new to the AL West, I'm basically indifferent to the other teams in the division because I really don't know much about...

    Justin Verlander traded to the Astros

    That's right, that SOB....:mad: Glad to see the Brewers lose to the Pirates this evening where a two run homer in the bottom of the 9th did them in.

    Justin Verlander traded to the Astros

    WOW, that's really cool! Yes, I remember when he managed the Astros back in the early 80's when they made the playoffs for the first time in 1980 and again in the split season strike year in 1991. I did not know he broke in with the Cardinals. Now that the Astros are out of the NL Central, I...

    That's key. I'm pretty good at not eating lots of sugar and junk but I don't exercise enough. I have a fairly physical part-time job which helps but it's not enough.:(

    Group: Off With Their Heads Album: Home Song: Seek Advice Elsewhere Punk band out of Minnesota originally, now from California. First saw them warming up for the Street Dogs back in 2010 or 2011. They caught my attention because the lead singer wrote a song called "Eyes of Death" about his...

    Justin Verlander traded to the Astros

    That it is and same with me on the second part, I pretty much only watch baseball. Carlos Corera returned today, Lance McCullers will be back this week and the Astros just swept a three game series from the Mets today. Prior to this, it was looking iffy for the Astros to finish with the best...

    Justin Verlander traded to the Astros

    LOL! I was happy for the Cardinals when the won the big one in 2006. The general consensus was the Tigers were going to win it in four or five....NOT! Verlander had two losses, game 1 and game 4, didn't he?:eek: That was a pretty darn good Cardinals team that year and being an NL fan, I was...
