Last week, I reported that Brian Moehler is sporting a + 5.00 DIPS ERA and postulated that our defense was propping him significantly. We'll see how lady luck is feeling tonight as he toes the rubber against Mike Pelfrey. Will it be a series split or a series win for the Astros?

In other news, to echo what Evan posted earlier, as Astros fans, we need to participate in Tom Tango's defense survey. We're the only people qualified because we tune in game in, game out. To add some spice to this plea for help, Tango mentioned that the Mariners have had 200 people respond to the survey. The Astros, as of this afternoon: 6. I'm one and so is Evan. I'll just go ahead and say what Mr. Tango was too polite to: that's embarrassing. The Mariners fans have had 33.3 times more participation than Astros fans have. This is from a team that's so bad they use a guy who's OPSing less than .600 as their DH.

Get on it or, and this is a threat, I'll post a link and a condemnation every day until we have respectable numbers. We have too many people who come to this blog everyday to be lagging behind some latte-sipping dudes from Seattle.

This takes no more than five minutes...DO IT.
