Astros VS Rockies
Roy Oswalt VS Aaron Cook
Roy Oswalt Aaron Cook
7 - 5, 3.55 4 - 5, 4.93

Tonight... could be VERY exciting... 3000 hits is an amazing feat and hopefully it will come tonight for Mr. Astro, Craig Biggio. In all honesty, I don't expect it to happen tonight. I really think it will happen tomorrow, but I will still watch tonight like it's the World Series... well maybe not like the World Series, but you can bet your tail, that I will see when he gets his 3000th hit.

So, when this does happen, how do you think you will react? Will you cry with joy or just take it as another game. Not sure how I'll react.. but if I cry (which I might!), I'll let you know ;) .

Other than Biggio going for 3000 hits, tonights game isn't really that interesting to me. I mean I'm happy to see Roy Oswalt go to the mound, but we 203 games behind the Brewers in the division, and we're playing against Colorado.

On another note, congrats to The Big Hurt for whacking his 500th career home run... then later got thrown out of the game in the 9th for arguing balls and strikes after being K'd for the 2nd time in the game. Kind of a shame he didn't get it in a Chi-Sox uniform.

One final thing, from here.

The Houston Astros announced today that the club has recalled RHP Matt Albers and LHP Mark McLemore from Triple-A Round Rock. Albers and McLemore will be uniform for tonight's game at Minute Maid Park vs. the Colorado Rockies. In addition, the club has released RHP Rick White and designated LHP Stephen Randolph for assignment.
Should make some of you happy... no more baldy. If only he could have stayed as good as he had been at the start of the season.
