Astros Can't Help Braves Lose To Cardinals 8-0

I don't know whether I'm fatigued due to the Astros season or a lack of sleep.

I expected more from this game but I guess that fits right in line with my expectations for this season. The season ended a lot like it began. If you'll recall in the Astros first game of the season they had another playoff contender on the ropes heading into the 9th inning. That's when Brandon Lyon struck to wipe out a solid pitching performance by Brett Myers. Well Myers returned the favor in this game giving up 7 runs, 6 earned, in 5 innings. He will be checking out with a 4.46 ERA on the season.The offense did what it did best, not score runs. This was the twelfth time the Astros had been shut out this season.

Thank goodness it's finally over. It's been a long one and I appreciate every single one of you. even the ones who dropped out mid-season we really appreciate all your readership and point of views you bring to the website.

As we head into the offseason we can take small little victories in watching, and possibly rooting for Hunter Pence, Roy Oswalt and Lance Berkman do their thing in the playoffs.

The offseason looks to be a fairly interesting one for the Astros this year. The Jim Crane approval process still has to play out. Jeff Bagwell is up again for the Hall of Fame and shame on any writer who doesn't vote him in this year. The biggest excuse holding him back was the steriod era and tt appears he's passing the test of time on that one. Those are probably the two biggest issues we'll face as Astro fans this year.

Some of the smaller issues include: whether or not the Astros can re-sign Clint Barmes, what new reliever Ed Wade picks up and whether or not Wandy Rodriguez or Brett Myers return to this team next year.

I can't say there was really a moment that stuck out for me this season. Maybe when Brian Bogusevic hit the grand slam (I actually didn't get the opportunity to see that play for whatever reason). I think the most satisfying thin though was contributing to this site and interacting with readers and commentors both here on the site and on twitter. So again I thank you and I promise I'll work on my writing in the offseason.
