    Love this pitching staff.

    Garza.........5-1 2.09
    Shields........4-0 3.15
    Price...........4-1 1.91
    Niemann.....2-0 2.23
    Wade..........3-2 3.18

    Soriano.......1-0 2.08 (8 of 8 saves)
    Balfour.........0-0 1.98 (1 hold)
    Wheeler......1-0 2.08 (3 holds)
    Benoit.........0-0 0.00
    Sonnanstine 0-0 2.70

    Add in the left handed specialist Randy Choate as well Lance Cormier and you have a really deep quality laden bullpen. Sonnanstine can be an effective starter should someone go down to injury.

    You seen what Drayton McLain has done to that team?

    No one should be an Astros fan at this point.

    yeah man.

    It's definitely only cool to be a fan of a team when they winning.

    The truth of the matter is that the Astros have been one of the more successful NL teams the past 6 years, no matter how naive you might be about it. You just have a vendetta against the front office for whatever reason.

    In 2004, they won 92 and were a series away from the WS.
    In 2005, they won 89 and made the WS
    In 2006, they won 82
    In 2007, they won 73 (terrible year)
    In 2008, they won 86 games
    In 2009, they won 74 (another bad year)

    But the reality is that not many NL teams have had the success they have in the past 6-7 years. Sure, they on a little downward swing now, but who hasn't had one of those this decade?

    And FWIW, YOUR Rays aren't as good as the Yankees. Just saying. 2 series with the O's, 2 series with the A's, a series with the Royals and catching the Red Sox when they down will make anyone's pitching look good for a month.

    They are going to lose 100 games this year.

    They are going in the WRONG direction.

    This owner does not care anymore.

    Not sure what you don't get about that.

    they are, that's why i called him a bandwagon jumper. lol.

    Just like all of a sudden Phil Mickelson is his boy now since Tiger's "transgressions".

    Sounds like someone's been using a trampoline they've been jumping on and off so many bandwagons. Lol

    I bet my house he said he'd bet his house that Tiger would win a major last year.
