I'm still shocked at the way we lost last night... I had a good feeling about it going into the 9th and was just thinking to myself how Valverde usually gets the deal done when he has a 1 run lead... I was so wrong as he didn't get out of the inning and the Astros ended up losing 3-9. How you give up 7 runs in the 9th is beyond me, but the Astros managed to do it. I guess Valverde heard us talking about trading him during the game and wanted to lower his trade value.
