Oh. Hey. It’s the Astros. I remember you guys.

And little Joey Musgrove! The former Blue Jays prospect — or, draft pick, or… whatever — who turned into something completely different in the Houston organization, and thoroughly carved the Jays over 4.1 relief innings in his big league debut.

Should be fun times unless the Jays hitters look as lost as they were the last time the club faced the Astros, or if Francisco Liriano walks everybody in sight. I dunno! Let’s do it!


Yeah… I got nothing.
