From what I've heard, Roy thinks he found a hitch in his step that could be the reason he hasn't been as effective this year as he has been in the past. We'll see tonight as Roy tries to avoid being 0-4 for the 1st time in his career. Tonight isn't a make or break night for Roy(meaning, if he does bad tonight, he won't be packing his bags for Round Rock), but it would very good for him and the Astros if he would come out and have a typical Roy-O performance.

I have a little bit of good news. From listening to Cooper today on the radio, Valverde was working on his pitching today and shouldn't be available for tonight's game. Well... it sounds like good news to me. How he's been pitching lately, he may need to work on his pitching some tomorrow as well...
