MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Houston Astros Erik Williams-USA TODAY Sports

It’s Labor Day, and we celebrate Labor Day....by not working!!!!

And watching baseball. And talking about it with our friends.

The Astros take on the slumping Metropolitans of the Twin Cities (more here), sending former Cy Young winner Dallas Keuchel to the mound. His opponent will be Kyle Gibson.

Here is the Astros lineup. Notice: no Altuve, no Shark. CBS news calls the Altuve omission a “breather.”
