    Roger Clemens(1-0, 2.57) vs. Russ Ortiz (No Record)


    Game time is scheduled for 12:00 on ESPN., if all other series are finished on Saturday then the game moves to 6:30.

    Does this mean the Yankees have to win as well as the Cardinals? Or just the Cards?

    i hope it stays at 12 cause i've been looking forward to the first rockets action in a long time and i don't want those 2 games to conflict. also it means st' louis loses and i'd rather them not be rested up.

    I like the idea of the later start. It would give the Rocket a little extra rest. He might need it going on 3 days rest.

    WHOOO! Time to win this series! Time to make history!

    Braves middle lineup has really sucked this post season, I hope they can keep it up.

    Go Stros!

    Root for the Good Guys! MMP was nuts!! :cool:

    I'm not as worried about Clemens going on three days as I was agaisnt the Rockies. He's going ot be at home. MMP will be going bananas just like today, and if the Rocket puts us in a position to win the game, I think he'll pull out all the stops...Even if he has to pitch Oswalt for an inning. I think Kent will have a big game tomorrow and Beltran will continue to smack the ball. If we can get 5 innings from Clemens with the lead, then I say turn it over to the Bullpen. I can't wait for this game tommorow!! By the way, I'd rather have the game moved to night, because he'd get a little extra rest and the last time Clemens pitched on a sunday night he had 10K's in 7 IP and most importantly 0 ER. Not likely with the Twins beating the Yankees right now. Oh well. LEts take care of business tomorrow "Stros!

    Anyone know that band that played the Phil Collins remix on ESPN Astros/Braves intro?

    A hard rock version of "in the Air tonight."


    EDIT: I think if found it. Nopoint - Recoil, "in the air tonight."

    I think that Roger may go 5 innings tops before we turn it over to the pen . From this point it will be up in the air ....... Oswalt was warming up in the pen today so maybe we could start Roger and let him go 5 , bring in Roy for 2-3 , and then a "Lethal Dose Of Lidge Heat" to finish them off . I'm hoping that we can pull this off and not have to go back to the ATL . My prediction .................. Stros 6-4 .

    Lets send the chickens choking back to Atlanta once again !!

    :D

    That sounds like a good idea, but what would that mean for game 1 of the NLCS? Would Roy be able to go after pitching a few innnings in game 4? Hopefully Roger can go 6 or 7, but I agree with you that he will probably go 5 and then Garner will go to our pen.

    Game 1 of the NLCS would not be till Wednesday... and with the way Backe is throwing, I wouldn't be worried with having him pitch that game on 3.5 days rest (since today was a noon game... and Wednesday will be a night game).

    But, likely, the offense should be amped up to go no matter who's on the mound, and Roy won't be pressed into action.
