Well, except for the first inning, we certainly didn’t see Astros clogging up the bases, no indeedy. Yessiree. Bobby Seay got through his 3 hitters with 10 pitches; Miner through his 3 with just 9, Grilli mowed through 4 hitters with 11 pitches; Bautista needed only 6 pitches for his 3 hitters and Todd Jones and his 10 ERA needed 12 pitches.
Isn’t it WONderful how they just whacked away at the pitches? None of that waiting for something crap like Mo Ensberg – good riddance – used to do!!!!!
And you notice that now that the boys are back home, they didn’t make any errors? Which proves right there that the defense is just fine. No problem.
Wandy gave up 7 H (2 HR) and 3 BB, yielding 5 ER in 4 innings. No problem.
Woody gave up 5 hits (2 triples to Miguel slow as molasses Cabrera) and 5 ER in 3 IP. No problem.
Wesley Wright and Geoff Geary didn’t give up hits, walks or runs. See, the bullpen is great and we won’t miss old Chad whatshisname who gave up home runs, a rarity among relief pitchers, as we all know.
The team looks to be in wonderful shape and I am SOOOO excited about our team and the winning season we will have. In fact, I fully expect us, with our great lineup, to win the Central and beat the Mets, Braves and NL West for the pennant.
Opening Day tomorrow!!! Astros caps – check. Astros shirts – check. Me and brother and my friend and 7 kids between us – check. Kids stuffed FULL of pancakes/eggs/sausage/syrup/milk/water IMMEDIATELY before leaving for the park – check. Husband taking the puppies to the shelter – well, I’d best not be coming home with tired wired kids and find out he, um, uh, forgot/didn’t get around to it, uh, gonna do it tomorrow, uh, um, ….
