    Please keep this to talk about the series. As usual no Play-by-Play, or general Astros talk. If you need play by play see one of the many other sites that have game casts.

    8-9 Mike Minor, LHP vs. Bud Norris, RHP 7:05 on FSH

    8-10 Jair Jurrjens, RHP vs. J.A. Happ, LHP 7:05 on FSH

    8-11 Tommy Hanson, RHP vs. Wandy Rodriguez, LHP 1:05 on FSH

    I hate the Braves. I hope we kick their asses both on the scoreboard and in a brawl. Neither is likely to happen though. :eek:

    Hey, the Astros are 30-29 since June 1st. What a refreshing string of mediocrity, compared to the horrific sucktitude we endured April and May!

    I am terrified about tonight's game, a rookie pitcher with less then a year in the minors(no pun intended) and who is pretty much penciled in for big things...not a good recipe for the good guys.

    LLW... :(

    Its a rookie, Jurrjens isn't that good on the road, and Hanson's inconsistent....you guys are just looking at the name, not the facts. I'll be surprised if the 'Stros don't win the series

    It must be nice after sooooo many years of winning to finally be getting out of the rebuilding period you guys were in? Tons of young talent and more on the way from what i've been reading, honestly thought once John Schuerholz left the Braves GM position the Bravos would disappear for a much longer period of time.

    LLL...on the bright side, at least it'll be televised here, although i'll probably be PO'd and change the channel halfway through the game...
