I don't think I've ever in my life woke up and frantically checked Twitter, but I did this morning. I needed to know how Lance Berkman was. Skipping through the mass of emails, etc. on my Blackberry I quickly located the following and shouted with glee:
So let's all pause today and thank the god's of baseball/knee-innards for our good fortune. Without the good grace which they have bestowed upon us, we'd be looking at two weeks of Geoff Blum as our starting 1B. In a season which we're hoping that all the cards are dealt favorably to the Astros, that'd be like drawing a seven/two off-suit start.
Ok. I'm getting back to my NY vacation.
