First of all....Ted Lilly's full name is Theodore Roosevelt Lilly. Sorta cool. Too bad Teddy Roosevelt was 100 times the man Ted Lilly will ever be. Roosevelt led his volunteer regiment known as The Rough Riders up San Juan Hill during the Spanish American War.

Ted Lilly, on the other hand, is 3-1 against the Astros all time, 2.52 ERA, and 7.8 K/9...child's play in comparison to his namsake.

Brian Moehler it's your time to shine. Was last year a fluke? Or will Mr. Moehler continue his hot spring tonight against the Cubs?

DQ and I both have class tonight, so if we aren't able to enter in the lineup before game time, our apologies..Regardless, this would be a nice series to win. Get 'em Moehler!
