    Nobody wanted him, even the Giants weren't particularly interested so we wouldn't be the only team that missed the boat.

    Good for him if he sticks.

    What a perfect microcosm. A complete dick and a decent human being.

    After just watching JD Martinez's inability to beat out one of the slowest turned DPs, I've ever seen, I wouldn't bet on him in a race against Maldonado.

    Was he actually running hard or was he lollygagging?

    He was going as hard as he could (that's what she said). Beating the throw meant a run and continuing the inning when they were down 4-2.

    I just found out Eusebio was part of the Astros org for 16 years (as a player). I mainly remember him in the late nineties.

    He also had a 24 game hitting steak that spanned 45 games and 51 days.

    I loved that awkward stance of his.

    My only memories of Eusebio was that despite being kind of a hefty guy that would make you think he could generate some real power, the guy was almost exclusively a slap singles hitter. But...everrrrrry once in a while he would turn on one and rocket it over the left field fence. Those were fun ABs.

    Tony Eusebio was soooo close to a great Astros memory and would have been remembered by even more fans. He was the one that hit the hard grounder to Walt Weis in 99 playoffs against the Braves.

    Eusebio's swing was geared at beating the shift. Granted, teams didn't shift against him.

    Posters lose it in the GARM after one inning.
