    I hope the Astros win but Barry hits 2 HR's. I don't hate Barry he was just 1 person out of about 400 who were cheating every year. It's baseball and Bud Selig's fault not Barry's.

    Hate him for being a racist jerk but don't hate him for what happens on the field he might be the greatest of all time and I'll stand and clap if he jacks one.

    Astros win 2 out of 3 and get back to 500 :D

    **** Barry. Will be interesting to see the fan's reaction to events. Their behavior the last couple of times Barry's Pharmaceutical Sideshow rolled through town was a total embarrassment.

    Stros shouldn't give him 1 pitch to hit in a close game this entire series. Make somebody else beat you. Pitch him inside, very much inside. Do not miss over the plate, miss inside. If you dot him, so what? He's armored up.

    Greatest Brandon Backe moment? Forget the NLCS, forget the WS. Backe vs. Bonds, Brandon bounces a *curveball* around Barroid's feet. Barry goes on his ass, gets up, glares & points his bat at Brandon. Camera is on Brandon, even the worst amateur lip reader noted the following delicate exchange:

    "**** YOU. I WASN'T ****ING THROWING AT YOU, MOTHER****ER"

    I don't understand why they are skipping Sampson and not Albers. LLL.

    Fun Fact: Woody Williams is 4-6 off of Matt Morris. Ausmus, Berkman, Lamb & Lee hit him well. AE & Loretta are ehhhhhh. MoBerg & Biggio do not. Please Phil, start Mike Lamb. Of the Giants, it's the pissant middle infielders who've given Woody trouble: Vizquel, Durham & Aurilia. Woodrow pitched very well against the Gints last year, sub 2 ERA in 5 games.

    Noah Lowery is a pitcher I can learn to hate really quickly. He's 3-0, 1.17 in 3 career starts vs. Houston. Current Astros combine for a .412 OPS in over 80 PAs against him. Yes, you read that right, four-twelve. OPS. But he's never pitched at MMP, so maybe the home mojo is strong.

    The Giants have pretty much had more success against Roy than any other team. Combining for a .355/.418/.620/1.038 line in over 130 PAs. Pedro Feliz, Randy Winn, Durham & Aurilia all hit over .400 off him. Barroid's 4-4 with 4 XBH & 4 BB. Yikes. Lincecum is about as close as you'll get to a Roy clone. Short righthander, long strider, fastball jumps out at you. Should be an interesting matchup.

    That is awesome.
    We know that Roy O won't be afraid to throw at BB in game 3. Let's hope he gives him 2 or 3 (very) inside heaters in a row

    I predict the Astros have a new beat reporter starting tonight. ;) Err, oh wait. The games. I'll say WLW, because it's so hard to predict what to expect from Albers. However, Lowry is a lefty, and that's enough to make me have some doubts about that one.
