What did happen to A.J. He is on my fantasy league but maybe he left.

I think he was waived, not sure why.

Too many people seem to get waived or suspended for not much reason around here. a.j. was a great poster, damn shame some cruel mod waived him. It's like when BlackJesus got waived that sucked.

Well if it makes you feel any better, Wendy Rodriguez is leading the NL in ERA. Johan Santana said he feels sry for the Astros and intentionally gave up 3 runs just so you have something to cheer about.

Santana also said, "You are welcome, Astros fans." :D

I saw something where Ted Lilly was scoring while he was on base or some ****, I just saw Ted Lilly showing some offensive parts of his game against our defense, then I turned the TV off, and turned off all updates.

Fat Elvis hits #300, congratulations to my favorite Twinkie eating Astro.

Now let's trade everyone but Pence and Bourn, thanks!

So apparently Brad Lidge changed his name to Jose Valverde. Neat.

Time to begin our annual second half dominance. It's Twinkie time.

Don't sleep on the Lastros. They're only 3 games behind the Cardinals. The Killer B's + Lee, Pence, Tejada and it's OVA!

I believe they are only 2 back now with the win tonight(which they did their best to choke away with the 5 run 8th inning!).

I wasn't going to say anything though because I don't want to jinx them, but now since you posted I can just blame their collapse on you.

Seriously though, it's fun to see them playing decent baseball and winning some games. I wasn't sure how they would respond after the break having to go into LA and then come home to play the Cardinals. This is a really tough stretch for them. They have the one day off after tomorrow(Oswalt going tomorrow, can we get the sweep?), then they have play the Mets(lol) over the weekend, then off to Chicago for 4 games against the Cubbies, then to St. Louis for 3, only to come home and face the Giants for 3(and they always destroy us for some reason).

It doesn't get easier after that either...another 10 games with no off days(Brewers/Marlins).

Still, they're playing pretty good baseball overall and it's nice to see them being competitive. Whodathunkit.

Ouch, Mets lose again. Must suck to be a Mets fan, but luckily we don't have any Mets fans around these parts.
