    Oh I always have something to say, for better or worse. Are you still mad because I got mad because of the Rockets game update and threatened to skull**** you? You did me a favor, amigo, instead of watching the 4th quarter I just rewatched the first half and pretended that was the final.

    But seriously, nobody knows nothing about JV yet, 50+ pitches off the mound is something though. Anything we get from him this year is just gravy.

    In case there is any confusion, I am not mad at Dusty. Sometimes, you just dont know and so you say so (in so many words). But reporting nothing of substance as news by the media is what I find annoying.

    On JV, my guess is that that last week he will decide. That is if he is healthy and we are still contending for something by then. Even if healthy, I dont see him returning for 1 or 2 starts if we are already out of the race.

    I thought you were mad at me. Not very stoic on either of our parts.

    Stros could mention that JV took a good sh!t this morning and one of the reporters would tweet it.

    And the media get annoyed by fans when they constantly get bothered "to ask the hard questions" when it is perfectly obvious the Astros aren't going to say anything. Perfectly obvious except by the hordes of fans that keep wanting to know.

    if the media doesn't report anything...fans are mad at them for not asking the hard questions.
    if media asks questions they know the Astros will deflect, fans are mad about media reporting nothing.

    Sometimes, the status update of there is no further information is an appropriate status update.

    Good G** 2020 has sucked in every conceivable way. Every Houston sports team is a pile of used Trojans. Lost income. Deaths in the family. December 31st can’t come soon enough to get this sh*t year done with.

    Hope?

    Something the Texans and Rockets don’t have?

    Something that our government lacks... and really society in general lacks.

    Maybe I get hit by a truck on January 1 but at least there is hope of something different.

    To me, a pile of used Trojans equals great success.

    Now a stack of unused expired Trojans....

    Hopefully:

    It's an actual season of baseball, for first off.

    Healthier players, for second.

    We don't know who will be back and who will be added, for third.

    Rookies got experience, for fourth

    It's not 2020, for fifth

    Again...hopefully

    I wonder in one of the boobs is getting more action than the other due to arm injury. We need to analyze the boob ratio.
