Brewers vs Astros coverage

I know it's a little early for the game thread to be posted, but I have the MPRE (ethics exam for lawyers) this morning and the Astros game tonight, so I won't be by a computer all day. DQ posted his optimized lineup article yesterday in the PM, but his schedule is hectic as well. Basically, I just wanted to be sure that the thread got posted in time. Also, this will be a nice place to get some Friday afternoon discussion going before everyone heads home from work, or wherever you are.

Some links to fill the day:

Zach Levine begs the question: is anything going right for the Astros right now?

The Astros have a pretty old AAA team.

Rest easy, Astros fans. We're not the easiest team to beat in the majors. That distinction lays with the KC Royals. Yuniesky Betancourt apparently was not their panacea.

James Taillon, a RHP from The Woodlands High School, will participate in the Under Armour All Star Game on Saturday. Congrats to the local product.

Taken from BrewCrewBall: Jason Kendall is quickly falling from the ranks of major league caliber players.

Don't worry Brewer fans, Humberto Quintero is the 300th ranked player in terms of VORP (for players with at least 100 PA), at -1.6, and Pudge Rodriguez comes in at #280 at -.6. It's gonna be a matchup of offensively inept backstops this weekend at the Juice Box.
