Astros Crawfish Boil: August 2, 2023

So what happens now?

MLB: Houston Astros at Oakland Athletics Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

It was pretty good for a Tuesday.

I’m pretty happy I was fully engaged for yesterday’s game. A lot of times, I’m only kind of half paying attention for the first few innings. Yesterday, I was locked in, and I picked a good day for it. Martin Maldonado sure called a good game, and Jeremy Peña reached base three times more than anyone else while making several excellent defensive plays. Oh, and we got Justin Verlander back. Am I missing anything?
