Uh, 9 runs in and they're still batting?

Not bad.


I like Diamond's chance at getting the W...go Rochester!

As a complete gambling n00b, I will ask what may be an obvious question: do sports books offer any interesting/fun propositions in-game when the first inning is like that one?

I guess he's not going to take the easy way -- three singles and the bases loaded with no outs in the third.

A triple play with the bases loaded -- Diamond had it under control the entire time.

From the ESPN.com pbp:
A Presley fouled out to second

Even though I've got a pretty good idea what must have happened, this way of saying it looks funny.

The 'Stros have 5 guys with BAs over .250.

The Twins have one.

Anderson to Albers: "You're getting pounded by the worst team in baseball. Think about that, rook."

Rochesters doing their part to try and make the playoffs. Batting around in the 1st.


Same for the Astros it seems.

Crash Davis: You just got lesson number one: don't think; it can only hurt the ball club.

Not that anyone cares, but I've had such a fantastic Labor Day weekend not even the 'stros putting a 3 spot on Albers in the bottom of the 1st can spoil my mood.

I wonder how much the scalpers were charging for tickets to today's game. Or maybe all the scalpers in Houston have gone out of business?

What's maddening is that it looks like he take's such a nice easy swing when he homers as opposed to the way Willingham and Colabello almost kill themselves swinging so hard.
