    He looked pretty good throwing 95 MPH in the 7th and 8th innings last night.

    roy's looked better lately because his control has tightened up. last night's high/wide strike zone helped, too. that said, the main diff I've noticed in roy this year has been his inability at times to change speeds. the SLOW curve seems to be much less of a weapon for him.

    I went to bed after Berkman's hr last night. I knew they were going to win once the game was tied. It's been a few years since I got that feeling from them.

    I like that feeling.

    (Besides, after the Rockets/Utah series and all of these Astros west coast games lately, I'm not getting much sleep. Once they get Colorado out of the way, it will be normal game times for the rest of the season).

    Is it too early to start tracking Lance Berkman in the Triple Crown Categories?

    Lance is now 2nd in Batting Average at .393, Chipper Jones leads at .406.
    Lance is tied with Chase Utley for 1st in Home Runs with 13.
    Lance is first in RBI with 38, Xavier Nady is 2nd with 34.

    The 1/4 point in the season is tonight.

    That's what's insane, is that Lee has absolutely come out of nowhere. I mean, last year, he was all but left for dead when he was having his command issues. Now, all of a sudden, he's putting up numbers that Cy Young himself couldn't even touch. 0.00 ERA ON THE ROAD THIS DEEP INTO A SEASON! That's freaking UNHEARD of.....absolutely insane.

    This year has been a year full of surprises already, what with Berkman and Lee putting on their shows, the Marlins and Rays playing outstanding baseball, Asdrubal Cabrera's unassisted triple play last night......is ths MLB on its way to a season for the ages much like the NBA did this year? I hope so.

    With every single outing, Backe slowly but surely gets WORSE and WORSE.

    Bourn completely spaced out on that play. I hope he learns from it. I'm not sure what he was doing. It's not a drill.

    No worries. The Giants are going down.

    Bourn is a joke. Our pitcher fouls off multiple pitches to earn a 2 out walk and then our so called lead off man fouls out within 4 pitches. He really is pathetic right now

    Well with the Astros so hot right now, they can afford to give him a little slack. Which hopefully they continue to do.


    Lol at the music they kept playing for Tejada's at bat.

    Is anybody else having audio problems watching this game on fsn? I can hear crowd noises but no announcers.

    I love when they play the music for Tejada, it usually leads to good things happening.
