Sorry I haven’t posted anything in a while – Barry Lamar Dog passed away this weekend and I have been just grieving. He was the best Dog I ever had – guess that as soon as the Giants won the series, he had seen it all…
Back to some baseball – Michael Bourn just won his second Gold Glove and the Fielding Bible award for excellence in center field.
Actually, I was very surprised that Michael won another Gold Glove – usually, the award is based on either fame, deserved or undeserved, or on batting average. Michael had the July from he!! and all of his offensive statistics, as well as his stolen bases, were decreased from last year.
However, Michael’s incredible fielding held up.
I’m pleased and surprised that he got the media cred he deserves.
One good thing to say about the team.
The list of minor league free agents was just released, and I’m going to go through it and see if there is anyone who just might could be worth a try. Ed Wade already has said that the Astros won’t be players in the FA market, which is just as well. And that Lance Berkman isn’t coming back, which we all knew anyway. I wouldn’t be surprised if he has a bounce back year IF his knees/legs are healthy – he hit better in the postseason than Clutch God Jeter.
Ah well, water under the bridge.
Parts 2 and 3 of the Astros future coming up before Thanksgiving – I swear. Theys gonna be CHAMPEEN entries, tell you that…
