    Was he as painful to watch on tv as he was from the stands?

    Mine wasn't working either. I pictured a trophy head hanging on the other side of the wall, but who has a horse as a hunting trophy. I guess maybe the guy who would hang the rest of the horse in the hall.

    Nobody is going to top Riverbrian's "No Horsing around in the House!!!" so I guess it doesn't matter.

    Then it was probably more painful on TV. I'm paying for Extra Innings.

    The boys are really giving the Astros everything they can handle.

    Just want to compliment Clete on not showing off like Buxton by making sure that he was kept to a double. Allowed Bernier to serve a purpose and bunt him over to third, allowing Dozier's double to drive him in.

    I'd have pitched to Mauer. Nice rips by Thomas and Dozier.

    pfft. Why worry about making outs, on purpose? You get three per inning, ferpetesakes.

    We live for productive outs.

    Great at-bat by Morneau, but I'm going to have to mute the TV when he comes up because this "turned a corner" narrative is old. For some reason I have the image in my head of Morneau playing peek-a-boo with Dickbert.

    Especially when the Astros are going to return the favor by giving us some freebies.
