Game Thread no. 132. Los Angeles Angels at Houston Astros. Aug. 30, 2018, 7:10 CDT

Come join the discussion as the Astros take on the Angels, hoping to expand their lead in the AL West.

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Houston Astros Erik Williams-USA TODAY Sports

Some news in Astros-land. A.J. Hinch gets a contract extension. I can’t speak for everybody, but I , for one am happy that he will be the stabilizing force behind the Astros for years to come.

And Charlie Morton is on the DL with “shoulder discomfort.” Damn, the Astros front office has taught me to hate that word. “I don’t think that word means what you think it means.” Princess Bride.

Oh well, we’re marching to the playoffs. Right now the Angels are in the way. Watch out.

Line up here.
