Yes, you 16 remaining Astros fans, it is true that the Astros have managed to win 30 games before the All Star Break. And avoid yet another sweep.
Bud Norris pitched well, as usual – 2 ER - 7 singles, 2 walks and only 3 K over 7 IP. Only THIS time, he got run support AND the bullpen didn’t cough it up.
Brad Mills n the boyz had a meetin today – no media, no batting practive – hmmmmm
Wonder what Millsie-poo was singin…
Mah players make me frown
oooooooh don’t they make me frown
They nevah make the scene
By sendin em deep in the crowd
And fans they gonna talk
LAWD how they gonna talk
And when they turn out the lights
The fans they won’t be comin back
So Ah took em all behind closed doors
And Ah kicked their sorry butts
For makin me sick Ah took this job
And the media don’t know
What goes on behind closed doorsssssss
Apologies Charlie Rich
And we’re off to Miami – see what it’s like to play in a stadium with 5ooo people watching – where JA Hopeless will face lefty Brad Hand: 0-3 in 4 GS over 19 IP: 13 H, 6 HR!!!!, 12 BB, 8 ER/10 R. 3.19 ERA/1.32 WHIP and 0.197 BAA. The guy should pitch a no-hitter, seeing as how the Astros don’t homer or walk….
