My last game thread sucked, so I’m going to jump right back on the horse. Get ready to endure lots of orange all weekend from Enron Field Minute Maid Park. Friday at 5:10: Cotton vs. Charlie Morton Saturday at 4:10: Triggs vs. Joe Musgrove Sunday at 11:10: Hahn vs. Dallas Keuchel

Guys, I’m going to take a run at improvements and error corrections this weekend, so please post anything and everything that’s been bothering you in this thread so I have a working list. One of my goals is to try to solve some backend resource issues that will allow me to figure out how much ...
