Holy crap. These Astros are mind-bogglingly terrible.

Correia just 33 pitches through 3 innings. Not to take anything away from how effective he's been so far, but the Astros are playing to get to the airport as soon as possible tonight.

They can keep mailing it in when we play them in Houston too! Hopefully the Cubs don't care anymore either!!!

Wow! In all my years of watching baseball, I don't think I remember ever seeing a 3-2-3 double play before. Corporan may be even slower afoot than Barajas.

Looks to me like Cutch is really hurting. Lots of grimaces, and he walks rather gingerly. I give him credit for being out there and producing.

For those watching on TV, Barajas was about 20 feet from home by the time Presley coasted into third. And a perfect throw would have nailed him at the plate. That was entertaining to watch. :)

Rod the Rocket scored all the way from first??? MEDIC!!!!

I can only assume that Presley would have had an inside-the-parker if not for Barajas in front of him.....

Nice 10 pitch AB by Correia, even though he struck out.

Props to Correia on that at-bat. He put more effort into it than the entire Astros lineup combined has shown tonight. The crowd appreciated it, too.

I was going to predict that Barmes would get on base in each of his first three plate appearances tonight, but I forgot.

That prediction would have been more outlandish that guessing the next Powerball numbers...or at least about the same odds. Props to Clint though.

Houston has had 22 plate appearances so far tonight and have faced all of 67 pitches. I feel like I want to tell the Astros that I want my money back.

Suicide squeeze. Honestly, I don't think Corporan would have had a play even if he'd realized that Presley was coming down the line (which he clearly wasn't). It was a decent bunt.
