    Great game!

    I had so much fun at it. Damn, watching a game up in the suites is amazing! :eek:

    I was only posting those stats because they were impressive. I am well aware of the struggles of many of the other guys who we traded away.

    I actually think the Astros did the right thing in both cases. Lidge needed a change and we had to have a closer so parting with Qualls was necessary.

    I also think Lidge will eventually come undone. It gets harder to stick to that as he continues to put up zeroes, though.

    I only watched one game where Lidge pitched this season. And he walked 2 guys, wild pitched another. but got out of the bases loaded jam with the last out.

    Bourn has a sore groin, will probably sit out a few games.

    Kaz leadoff, Erstad in cf, hitting 2nd.

    Damn, that's not the kind of injury you want to hear about from a guy with that kind of speed.

    Coop said on the pregame that it's probably from him taking a beating on the basepaths, and it's been bothering him a bit for the past few games. He had a couple of pretty awkward looking slides earlier in the season, sliding late & almost sliding completely over & past the bag & kinda had to hook it with his foot. He's looked better in the last couple of tries I've seen. But yeah, hopefully it's nothing long-term.

    If it's been bothering him for a few games, that makes me feel better. Clearly he's been every bit as aggressive these past few games and didn't lose a step in that stretch, so hopefully he should be able to be himself even if he's sore for another week or so after he returns.

    What a great play at 1B by Tejada, he continues to impress the hell out of me.

    Can't believe Backe just walked Peavey. Didn't he have an RBI off Roy in the first game too? Peavey is like A-Rod in the batter's box against us lol :D

    Well, it's Carlos Lee, the rally killer these days. Good to see Peavy at 60+ pitches already. :D

    I guess we have the wrong scouting report against Peavy.... (for him as a batter, that is).
