Let’s get one back.

It would be asking too much to expect that the entitled fans of New York would have their self-righteousness and hatred slaked by their whooping of the Astros last night.

No, as Dan 410 pointed out. This will probably never end. If a team beats the Yankees, it can only be because they cheated right? Wearing buzzers and all.

Will someone in the national media tell the truth about Jose Altuve? Tony Adams’ audio evidence shows that Jose Altuve did not participate in the trash can scheme as much as it was in his power to prevent people from banging. He didn’t cheat, almost alone among Astros (Reddick, Kemp too) and yet he gets the most boos. Is it because the New York fans hate cheating, or that they hate that Altuve KICKED THEIR ASS out of the playoffs.

I think we know the answer.

Great umpiring last night. Check this out.

Tonight it’s the surprising Astros rookie phenom, Luis Garcia, on the mound against Jordan Montgomery.

Martin Maldonado was not seriously injured last night, thank God, although the collision looked terrible.

Here’s the lineups.
