As far as pitching goes Roy is all we have that can be counted on.

A good start to the roadtrip, and I have to say Roy really has cranked it up the last few starts.

He just needs more playing time.

How 'bout that Luke Scott, though? And how nice is it to see him playing every day? Wonder how long that will last? When do we face a lefty again?

Oh... and what about that fine dive, grab, hop-up, throw 'im out play that the less than serviceable 3rd baseman, Lambo, made?

Once again Garner makes a move two weeks too late.

As far as I know, both the Dodgers and Padres have righties scheduled against the Astros. So Luke should play through the end of this road trip.

Lamb played great defense last night. Think he might've been trying to show up Wiggy?

On a separate note, I posted a thread about last night's game that I should've titled "Who's Got Lane Love?". The answer's Garner. Here's what he said about Lane's low BA:

Quote:
"It's a real deceptive deal," Garner said. "He's playing well defensively and if you keep hitting multiple-run home runs, then you can keep him in the lineup. The whole idea is you want the batting average, and you want that to lead to production. If you hit it out of the ballpark, that's what we're looking for.

"Your average can be a little bit lower as long as you're driving in those runs and hitting them out of the ballpark. And driving them in games like this, when it was important, not when you have a 10-run lead and you hit them out of the ballpark."
Yeah, he smacked a 2-run homer. That was his ONLY hit and it wasn't even the game winning run! They don't mention how many times he leaves runners stranded like he did to end the top of the 3rd with 2 men on.

Hmmmm... Garner's comments sound eerily familiar. Hang on.... it's coming to me... something about Endsberg and how good his OBP was?

Well that figures. Mgt. continues to make excuses for sub-par players who were raised as Astros.

Any chance they'll still decide to ditch Wiggy at the end of the year and make Lamb our everyday 3rd baseman? He could do it! To think that we got rid of Wheeler and got Wiggy, who we didn't need, in trade. Makes me sick. It's like what we got for Willy. *big groan*....

Tonight is Albers - good luck Guys!
