Hopefully the day off yesterday gave the Astros some time to think about how bad they have been playing baseball lately. I can't count how many times I've heard "the Astros don't deserve to win with the way they have been playing" from friends and colleagues. Anyways...

Tonight's game, just looking at the names on the pitching match up, definitely looks like a game the Astros should win. Roy Oswalt, dominant ace of the Astros against Seth McClung. McClung is only making his 4th start of the season and has a winning record.. Oswalt on the other hand, is 2 games under .500 on the season and hasn't shown many signs of being that dominant closer that we all knew and loved. Hopefully he returns to form...

Last time we faced the Brewers, we got swept out of Milwaukee in a 3 game series... but we're home now... time to return the favor.
