This is called, leaving out important information to tell the truth and make something that is not as good as something else, look better than that something else.... (Huh?)

We don't need Ben Sheets!! We have a better pitcher in Brian Moehler... Moehler has less losses than Sheets... Moehler has also allowed fewer hits, runs scored and walks while having a better win % than Ben Sheets... Who needs Sheets when we have Moehler!!!

There, if I give any other stats, I'm afraid I will ruin my arguement for Brian Moehler.

The Astros need to win the final 2 games in the series or they can just stick their heads between their legs and kiss their playoff butt's good bye.


Lineup

Houston Astros @ Milwaukee Brewers

08/19/08 7:05 PM CDT

Houston Astros Milwaukee Brewers
Darin Erstad - LF Ray Durham - 2B
Michael Bourn - CF J.J. Hardy - SS
Ty Wigginton - 3B Gabe Kapler - LF
Lance Berkman - 1B Prince Fielder - 1B
Geoff Blum - SS Corey Hart - RF
Hunter Pence - RF Craig Counsell - 3B
David Newhan - 2B Mike Cameron - CF
Humberto Quintero - C Jason Kendall - C
Brian Moehler - P Ben Sheets - P

AHHHH!!! We need to win a game, and we put out a TERRIBLE lineup... Wow.... Looks like we're mailing this season in now.... I don't mind Wigginton batting 3rd in his current hot streak, but I'd still rather see him 2nd or 4th and Berkman 3rd... Tejada is still our best short stop so he should be playing in such an "important" game as today... Newhan shouldn't be in the league....
