    The Astros are facing possibly the best pitcher in the AL, the Astros would do well to win 2 of 3. expecting a sweep is ambitious. unlikely Sonny gives up more than 1-2 runs.

    Lets go Stros, time to step it up for last 2 to 3 weeks of regular season run!

    Last minute favor for friend coming in town needs two cheap upper level tickets, where should I browse at besides that Astros.com front page that leads to ticketmaster? Any inexpensive $10 parking garages nearby!

    They do that and they will be in pretty good shape. I cannot see them sweeping Texas unless Prince and Moreland come down with food poisoning.

    Already in Rockets mode, no offense. I hope they get it together but the most important road trip of the season drained me.

    Let's get some ****ing wins!!! Sweep the angels, win the next two series and take back the AL West when we play the rangers at Minute Maid. Its not over yet, but it could end with a shaky home stand. Root Mudafugga!!

    I heard that the plumber and concession worker from Fresno has joined the big league club..... hell everyone is except the guy that hit 370 (White) and the guy that won minor league player of the year (Reed)..... even reports of James Mouton and Ty Gainey taking BP with the club.

    Maybe he'll leave little hints all over the clubhouse about AJ Reed.
