What Penetrates the Fog
Sorry to say it, Astros fans, but I’ve been away from the game for the entirety of the Padres series. Vacation/work/why do you care? Yet some facts about this team have managed to penetrate my MLB fog. I’m writing today with a stranger’s perspective:
1 – Astros are in last place. Yikes, still haven’t won a single series.
2 – However, Astros are in first place in taking out middle infielders at second base. Does this implicate some fire in the ‘Stros clubhouse?
3 – Wandy, Wandy, Wandy. Even strangers are crying about your 7.31 ERA.
4 – Brett Myers. Even strangers are impressed that the Astros have a solid starting pitcher in the rotation.
5 – Strangers have noticed that Lance Berkman is on fire!!!! Oh, wait, he’s a Cardinal.
6 – Strangers have noticed that Hunter Pence is not on fire.
5 – Strangers conclude that the Astros are back to being the disastros, which is a lot better than being “the good guys.”
New York City, here they come!
