I was thinking.
I wonder if Lester will enter the Cy Young chatter going on this year.
Another Lester-like performance last night with 7 cool innings where guys got on but that was it.
Cool being the important word there.
Lester can be like a big cat just toying with batters.
7 hits, 7 strike outs, no runs.
And then Kris Bryant.
Even I'm sick of all the he coulda been an Astro chatter.
But when he hit his 370 footer and also knocked in the previously walked Dexter Fowl with the Minute Maid Park backdrop, well you kinda couldn't not think about that.
After Lester left, maaaan - if you could just repeat that exact Hector Rondon/Aroldis Chapman performance thru the rest of the season you'd kinda own it.
Those guys back to back have to terrify other teams.
Rondon looked spectacular and Chapman, that guy moves in slo mo in everything he does til he explodes a pitch.
What must it be like to try to swing at 103 mile per hourer?
3 Astros got to do it, one made contact.
But seriously if you're on deck watching Chapman happen, your adams apple's gotta be dancing up and down, you know?
Like asking a movie star to dance or something.
Super scary but if it works you're the king.
Or the Astro.
Okay John Lackey, shut 'em down again today.
Cards beat the Brewers but still, a new Magic No.
