:cry: Fine, it was on me. I will take the blame for the sake of my love for the Astros.

Gallant effort from Wendy. I just wish the Astros could have produced some runs. Right now their pitching and batting are completely out of sync, but I expect the batters to step up their game.

At least they actually won a series against a good team. I'm looking forward to seeing how Paulino pitches against the Brewers in our upcoming sweep of them.

Stupid bullpen blew it last night, but I feel pretty confident with Oswalt going today, and the offense seems to be hitting more consistently.

Ok, maybe not...now he's hurt? Awesome. 10-10 in the 11th inning of a rain delay? Sweet. Hope when it resumes we blow it, it seems fitting.

Wendy has been spectacular this season. Better than Oswalt.

Yea, I used to loathe Wandy a few years ago but he's turned into a pretty quality starter, and he's been very good this season. It's nice to finally get an 8 inning start to help relieve the bullpen a little bit, not to mention that ever elusive W.

I must say, that Geary freakin' sucks. I really am starting to hate him with a passion. He's that guy that every single time he enters a game, I just know he's going to screw us. I know tonight we're playing in Coors Field but still, he's horrible. It's a good thing we had a 15-6 lead, because otherwise we'd have lost another game thanks to his suckiness.

I miss Valverde, even though he pretty much sucks too.

The Astros absolutely own Jason Marquis who has a 5.4 ERA over the past 4 seasons. And yeah, Geary is nothing but a garbajosa as he guarantees at least 1 ER in an inning. Well to be honest, aside from Hawkins and Sampson, their bullpen is one big **** mess.

Got to love how well Wandy is pitching this year. I am pretty impressed. 7 IP, 2 runs, 11 K's and no walks in Coors Field? Not too shabby.

Hey maybe they can get back to .500 soon! Hopefully they play well against the Scrubs.

The Rockets and Astros winning on the same day? God must be happy.

Here's what needs to happen:

Moehler and Geary need to both either get lit up and sent back to AA, get waived, or get injured forever.

We need to sweep them so we can actually have a non-losing record for the first time all season.

Rockets need to destroy the Lakers on Sunday.

Titties and beer.

Mainly tits.

Yea, tits.



Good talk.
