I had watched 5 innings of Astros suckage – GIDPs, Castro making a throwing error (welcome back) and Galarraga hanging sliders twice and watching them fly over the wall – two 2-run homers.
I was juuust about to go do something else when Brandon, who has had his butt glued to the pine while Fernando Martinez, who absolutely sucks with bat and glove has been given endless playing time, don’t ask me why – hit the second pitch he saw from Samardjzia over the LF wall!!!
Fernando is wasted space – Barnes has a chance to do something besides suck. And the guy is a good fielder, too. What’s with all the Fernando hype? Even the Mets fans got over him right quick when he came up and looked lost at the ML level.
Here and Cubs fans are trying to insist that their team sucks worser than ours – honestly. I think we showed them that they don’t know the meaning of true suckage.
Best of all, the Rox are winning as I write this here little note, so we’ll widen the loss gap to 4 games.
Forgot – GET THIS – the Astros AAA club starting pitchers, featuring the likes of Brian Bass and Jake Buchanan is SOOO bad (now hit 10 straight losses) with ERAs over 6, that they have decided to put Fernando Abad back into the starting rotation. No I am NOT kidding. They are pointing out how great he was over a year ago as a starter in the Dominican winter league, forgetting how TERRIBLE he was as a starter in 2011 – actually, as a pitcher, period. Brain trust – uh hunh…
