And for all you superstitious types, how about getting Dave Johnson permanently out of the booth?

What happened to Palmer? He was supposed to do both the NY and Hou series

Cowser striking out is about the least surprising result ever.

Heard an interesting tidbit on him recently......


His favorite song is Free Fallin by Tom Petty.

That 50th win is starting to become a bit elusive.

Suarez working on a nifty 10-hitter with no outs and the bases loaded in the fourth.

This is especially brutal living in Texas where everyone is either a Rangers or Astros fan.

Astros fans are the new Red Sox fans. Losers for almost their entire existence, and then they win a little bit with the aid of some trash cans and tablets and suddenly they become insufferable.

This is what was amazing about the non-sweep streak.  It's hard to avoid horrible series like this.  You want to never have them, but everyone does until you go 125 series without getting swept.

 

It happens, but I despise it's happening in Houston to these shit bags.

I never felt the Astros were as bad as their record has indicated for most of the season. Especially, the first month. When all said and done, I think they'll be fighting for the division title come September. I just wish they could have stayed lousy for 3 more games.

Why? We got a much better look at some potential competition and some more data on where we might be lacking that to beat up on a lousy team. Being great right now is superb. But being great in October is better. We can be great in October with some fixes. And yes we could be great in October as is but the stars would have to align.
