Things that worry me

The Astros have had two of their best offensive games against maybe the best team in baseball.  Orlando Palmeiro came through big.  Jennings got his first win as an Astros - ah, who am I kidding this team is not going to win the Central.  They just don't have the talent.

Things that worry me...
Tim Purpura doing his best 'Stand' Pat Gillick impression and not making a move.
The bullpen does not seem to have that killer instinct.  If you are coming in late you need to believe you will beat the other guy.
The schedule from here to the All-Star break.  Starting Friday we have 17 straight games and only Texas and maybe the Rockies can you expect to take the series from.
That it may never stop raining in Houston

And things that don't...
Mike Lamb do his Lance Berkman impression.
Lance Berkman doing his Lance Berkman impression.  OBP 428 and SLG 571 over the last 2 weeks.
Chris Sampson's poor outing - his first in over a month.  
Hunter Pence - you knew it was coming.  Yeah he doesn't walk enough and swings at some bad pitches but the kid can play and will get better as he learns.

Come on Astros let's take two out of three and win the second series IN A ROW!!
