A note regarding moderating of the gameday threads in 2019: As the disclaimer has always said, in the past, we have been very liberal in moderating the Gameday threads. They're meant to be a lot less formal than other threads on the forum, so to moderate them the same way would be silly. However, we do ask posters to maintain a certain level of decorum in these threads, and we plan on moderating the Gameday threads a little more actively this season. In particular, we ask that posters refrain from being overly repetitive with their posts (if you've made your point, let it go), refrain from monopolizing the discussion (if you are making more than a couple posts in a row, you probably need to slow down a little bit), and of course, follow the Ground Rules (link). The point is to make these threads worth participating in and fun for all posters, from our long-time fixtures to people just signing up today. -The Management
I have to tip my hat to this Astros team....such a strong and well-rounded team for a few years now and they have the ability to sustain their winning ways moving forward as prospects (e.g., Forrest Whitley, Kyle Tucker, Corbin Martin, Yordan Alvarez) come up to replace vets. Its just a damn good team and its been a lot of fun to develop a mini rivalry with them having taken turns booting each other out of the playoffs. Here's to hoping for a good showing this weekend although I'm not sure I love the pitching matchups.
