The arbiter of all baseball rules, Brian McCann, is in the line up. I don't know if he played earlier this week. I have not watched much. NANF.

Is James McCann of the Tigers (catcher) related to Brian?

Plus, they have 24 hours.    That's like a regular Houston rush hour.

Weird that I've never been to Houston. I've just been in about every major city in the US for business or pleasure but not Houston.

Rush hour is easy there.

I think you gotta treat Keuchel's fastball like a knuckleball. If it's high, let it fly, if it's low, let it go.

Wilfo always throws chest high to Zimmerman. Very accurate. That shouldn't be taken for granted, even at the MLB level.

Just about down the middle. I don't know what the hitter saw. Or didn't see.

Have a seat Altuve. Again when you get back to the dugout. Nasty hook.

There is no better Nats pitcher to watch when he's on than Stras. That includes Max.  IMHO.
