Fox gave us the Ranger broadcast instead of the usual Astros fare, although I couldn't watch until the 7th.
Good announcers - gave the Sox their due - talked a lot, during the last inning or so, that the Sox getting to .500 hanging within 7.5 games, etc.

Consider yourself lucky not to have seen that Astros game. Lieber just shut them down tonight. Either that or they decided to play a little corpseball.

I went on record a month ago that the cubs will win that division.
Hope I'm wrong, but they have the better pitching and the Astros offense suffers from the Sox affliction - they don't get on base enough.

i'm rooting like hell that i'm wrong.

Oh no doubt he is good, I didn't mean to imply that he wasn't. I was just saying you would think at Enron they could get more then one run off him.

True, but i just watched the highlights and his slider looked unhittable tonight.

Well, it appears that the Astros lack the huevos to do anything. The Cards are playing well, maybe they can. Heck, that would be more fun anyway, as Flubbie fans don't get more upset by anything than losing to the Cards.

That's my pick, Nelly...

I just think they have an amazing offense when they are healthy and they aren't reliant on having a band box stadium to do damage. Besides, I gots to root for Tony...
