    Any of these matchups could go either way with the sloppy strike zones this year. They have been consistently loose, especially outside pitches. I know it's a short season but I figured it would be better by now.

    Astro's are in a free fall and Mariners or Angels could take over the 2nd spot in AL West. I will for sure be rooting for this possibility and a fitting end to the Astro season.

    Marlins finish off a 5-2 mark vs. Philly in the longest single series since WW2. Fish!

    Mets need to sweep PHI on Tue-Wed-Thu to stay relevant.

    that said, if the sale of the team gets final approval, this will be the best year for the franchise since 1986.
