Verlander's first start with the 'Stros

Anybody else watching it on MLB? He looks good through three innings, but quite a shock to see him in a uniform without the olde English D.

And Kate is in the house, also sporting an Astros hat. Houston announcers are ecstatic over the trade.

P.S. Maybin also now with the Astros. Forgot about that.

Definitely surreal to see him in a different uniform I agree. I'm not sure I've ever rooted for a former detroit athlete as much as I am for him.

I'm cheering for the Astros like they're the frickin Tigers almost here.

They are still broadcasting the Red Sox/Blue Jays here; in the 13th inning. Hopefully over soon and on to see Verlander.

JV must feel like he's still with the Tigers. Astros getting no-hit through six.

The Astros manufactured a run without a hit; that can't feel like the Tigers....

Cameron Maybin with the Astros first hit.....a two-run dinger. If JV exits after six innings and 104 pitches, he leaves with a 3-1 lead.

Giles strikes out the side in the 9th. JV gets his 1st win as an Astro.

JV will do well with that team. Solid defense and bullpen.

His last pitch, 99MPH. That's a lot of heat.

Yup. He was pumped....gave a big glove slap and Kate whooped it up in the stands. Houston is now my favorite to go to the WS.

Verlander-Scherzer matchup? Dodgers would have something to say about that, but it would be entertaining, for sure.
