Heard this morning on ESPN that the Astros tonight will be trying to avoid their first ten-game losing streak since 1996.

Close but no cigar. They had a nine game losing streak in 1996; their last ten-game losing streak came in 1995. It stretched to eleven games, and was the club's longest ever.

Curse that Terry Collins!

Anyway, just like last night, I feel good, I feel positive, and I know that this losing streak ain't lasting another night.

Let's see if I 'm proven wrong again.
