    Goodness gracious (Astros)

    Did anyone see how the Nats scored the go ahead run in the 11th last night? Was that the Astros, or the Cleveland Indians pre the Lou Brown locker room speech?

    I think had that play been set in a movie, you might have dismissed it as overkill because it was too unrealistic. Oh my goodness, how many degrees of awfulness was that?

    I love the replay shot showing how the 3rd baseman almost gets hit by the throw to 1st. WOW!

    I am not sure that the third baseman's glove didn't hit the throw to 1st, which is what caused it to be so off line.

    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    His goal seemed to be to disrupt the play as much as possible. Like SBNation article said, "Grenade!"

    Would have saved a run! That was one of the worst defensive sequences I've ever seen. If the throw from 1st to home would have been in the same time zone as the catcher, Bernadino would have been out and we would not have had a good laugh today.

    Don't keep us all in suspense. What happened?

    We're really going to miss those Astros next year...
