Things to Think About:

1. Think About Justin Morneau... He hasn't been in the lineup Sunday or Monday and he isn't in the lineup today. I haven't heard of any injuries so I assume that he ended up in the dog house some how.... Ummm... Yeah I know... Just Joking... Like I tend to do.

2. Think about Oswaldo... He's back and batting 7th... Nice to have the big part of our future back in the present.

3. Think about Pinto... Start Number Two... Start Number one was alright... Hopefully that continues or escalates into terrific.

4. Think about Cosart... This guy was a highly thought of prospect... He wasn't supposed to be as amazing as he has been... He was supposed to be OK. He's been hanging up zero's and he is giving the Houston faithful something to look forward to.

5. Think about Shoe Size... My wife and I were discussing the new Iphone yesterday. She made the comment that I'm the type of personality that just wants new gadgets and when I said "That isn't true"... She said "If the Shoe Fits"... To which I replied... "I will get another one just like it".

6. If the shoe fits, best to get one like just it but for the other foot.

We had one in leftfield who wasn't too good in the field. I hope this RF guy is better.

We need a moderator, this is not acceptable on a family thread like this! On second thought the baseball we've been watching is far worse.

Not that I would normally notice such things, but get a load of the blonde in the white blouse sitting in the first row behind home plate off to the first base side.

God bless Texas!!

I thought that was a nice at-bat by Presley- got locked up on a 3-2 curve on the outside corner, but that was the tenth pitch. The Stro's pitcher is at 53 pitches after 2 innings, and they burned the pen last night.

Hmm ... see that Ft. Myers is behind 1-0 in the top of the 9th. Looking forward to tomorrow night's game.

Why does anyone pitch Colabello on the outside part of the plate? He makes a good living out there.
