Bury the A’s!!!!!!!!!

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Houston Astros Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Am I wrong?

Wasn’t that the sweetest victory of the year last night? It looked like a loss for sure but it turned into the best comeback of the year.

And it couldn’t have come against a better opponent.

A win tonight puts the Astros 5.5 games ahead of their Al West nemesis and another series win. A sweep means the Astros are 6.5 games up.

And James Click mentioned today that owner Jim Crane said the luxury tax is not a factor in trade decisions upcoming for the trade deadline.

Do you think the Astros don’t look dominant with another shutdown reliever in the fold?

Here’s the lineup. It’s ROY candidate Luis Garcia going for the hometown boys.
