“At last. Our love has come along.” Etta James, you were singing our song. Today, Yordan Alvarez, at last, at long, long last, arrives. “Our lives are wrapped up like clover. And life is like a song.”
And perhaps just when he’s needed. The Astros, in the absence of the injured three of the Core Four, have been winning a lot of close, low scoring games. But yesterday they could only muster four singles, and wasted a fine Framber Valdez start, losing 4-1. So maybe the big bat of Yordan Alvarez is coming along just in time.
Just in case the team still needs pitching, Wade Miley goes for the Stros against Dylan Bundy.
