I would love for the Astros to be in the NL West. It must be great to have a complete punching bag in your division to rack up wins. Just saying there's no reason to boast about 5 in a row when 3 are against hot garbage. The A's just did what they were supposed to do against a team like that.
Winning 5 games in a row is impressive no matter who you are playing. I'm not going to argue that the Astro's are any good, because they really are a terrible team. However, in professional sports anything can happen on any given night. If the A's bats had gone cold they could very well have lost the Colon start. Fortunately they have been on fire after 2 poor games to start the year.

8 in a row after giving up the first two is a great rebound. I think I'm going to buy tickets for the Anderson vs Verlander matchup tomorrow. That one is too good to pass up.

I'm really surprised how much hot garbage is being underrated in this thread.

Another solid win for the Giants today. LA looks better on paper, but SF looks better on the field. It's still early, but we have another great chance to win the NL West!

It would have been better if it was about the 14 year old.

Why did the Giants trade Connor Gillespe? He was starting to swing a hot bat at the end of Spring Training and it seems like that has carried over into the regular season. Who did they get back for him?

They got minor league pitcher Jeff Soptic. Gillaspie, in spite of his hot start, is not very good.

What in the world is wrong with Jarrod Parker? I thought he'd build off of last year and improve, but he's looking like **** so far.

Warriors need a win and Houston loss to get the 6th spot on Wednesday. Denver or OKC? Pick your poison

Actually Warriors just need a win. It doesn't matter what Houston does if the Warriors win thanks to the Suns win against the Rockets tonight. Of course if Houston loses to LA, than the Warriors get the 6th seed. Also, Steph Curry is a really really good shooter. Only 3 more to beat the record.

His command is off across the board. He's also throwing his best pitch - the change - less, and guys are swinging less at it outside of the zone. I'm sure it's a simple fix. Dude is too talented to walk twice as many guys as he K's, and give up a .400+ BA against. Would not even be shocked if he's turned it around by May - this is 3 starts of data. A's still 10-4 with his dog **** starts thrown in, imagine our rotation once he works out the kinks

Was really hoping he could break the record tonight in the Oracle, that would have been amazing. Too bad they started pulling away and turned the rest of the game into garbage time.

Chris Daniels ‏@ChrisDaniels5

NBA BOG Chair Peter Holt- expansion not off the table.

This combined with the fact that there will be NO recommendation this week indicates that the league is trying to ensure that both cities end up with a team.

Great news for the Warriors today:

Golden State clinches the 6th seed in the Western Conference and will face the #3 seed Denver Nuggets on Saturday.

Stephen Curry now holds the record for the most 3-pointers made in a single season with 272 makes (In less than 600 attempts I might add).

38.2 MPG

How's that "weak" ankle doing Steph?
