I would have spies all over the stadium tonight. I don't want any cheating by the Astros. keep your eyes open.gm

Machado getting a day off after the Padres clinch a playoff spot. Padres may not be trying to maintain that second spot too seriously. The playoff seeding may be a long-term embarrassment for MLB.
