Dolphins Stadium rises up from an empty lot   and is just down the street from a Wal-Mart and a Captain Crab's   The Inflatable Billy Marlin is new

No-one comes to the games   What do players for other teams think when they see Dolphin Stadium's vast racks of empty space?   The scene six minutes before game time

Five minutes before game time   The first Astros I saw was Woody Williams   Yup, sure was,

Hi Woody!   Is this his kid?   We always hear about Conor and Cavan, but what about Little Woody?

A gal had a 'BGO' sign   Backe! Shouldn't you be with the Express?   Congrats on the good start, though

Dave Wallace ponders four straight starter's Game Scores under 25   There were a bunch of different groups of Astro fans   They were all over

None sat by me though   Roy warming up   This is a pretty good picture, if I do say so myself

The board at Dolphins stadium is pretty large   I like the background they came up with   Like Star Trek, I guess

Brad could communicate with the aliens when they dropped by   Roy Oz would make a pretty good starship captain, I think   Roy waits for the throw in after Ramirez hit the leadoff single

Hanley on base as Roy throws   Another pitch from that sequence   Roy got as high as 95 mph several times

He threw many curves in the low 70's, and one as slow as 61   The way the board looked when Biggio came to bat   The animated race at Dolphins Stadium is Billy Marlin, in an airboat, sponsored by an Indian tribe. I forget what it is at MMP.

The beloved logo   I personally find it embarassing for my city that the Marlins choose to keep cheerleaders   I like tits and ass as much as the next guy, but baseball and cheerleaders do not mix

Josh Willingham was hit by an Oswalt pitch twice, and the second time the crowd didn't like it at all.   Alfredo Amezaga scored the run off Psychowski   Roy again, he's pretty cool

Oswalt striding forward to catch Ausmus' feed   Roy's motion when he's warming is different from game situations; I love the way the ball is almost a counterweight for him as he moves forward.   A kid who's already got his Pence jersey

I freaked when I realized Randolph was in the pen. Since I never saw Qualls, I figured Chad had been placed on the DL
