What a joke of a starting pitching match up... wow, this game doesn't exactly bring the fans to the stadium! I think anything more than 10,000 fans at the game would have to be a bonus for Drayton...Astros managed to win a series against the best team in the NL over the weekend, taking 2 of 3 from the Cubs... that sounds good and all, but both the Brewers and Cardinals still managed to increase their lead over the Astros by sweeping their last series.

MICHAEL BOURN BATTING 2ND!!!! OMG! AHHHHHHHHH!!!!! If I actually typed what I was thinking, I'd get kicked off the internet for foul language and hurtful thoughts... anyways... Obviously I'm not a big fan of Bourn [being in the lineup] batting 2nd and still think Wigginton should be leading off...
