|6 - 6, 3.06||6 - 1, 2.62|
Pretty good pitching matchup, I'd say, although that's what they were saying Sunday, too.
Of course, I continue to look for stats that present the 'Stros in the most favorable light, and hey! we've been pretty good the last seven days. . . .

Somebody over at Speedy's noticed that Ensberg has more homers, more RBI's and a higher batting average than Beltrán, for one-tenth the cost, or whatever. Makes me feel a little better, but imagine if we had both.
