So much for Fay's assumption that Bruce wouldn't start against Wandy. :O) I like it.

This game has me as pumped up as an opening day. It's remarkable how similar it feels in terms of anticipation.
CAN'T. WAIT. :D

I finally made the sign that I've talked about making since last season, if anyone actually remembers that, LOL :laugh: The sign says: "This Big Red Machine is a Vottomatic" and it's mainly red with some blue and black on it. :) I cannot remember who came up with the phrase during a game thread last year (help??!) but I finally put it on a sign and it will be with me at GABP tonight. I'm sitting near the smoke stacks (second row) so keep an eye out for me! :thumbup:

It may just be me, but it seems like BP gets thrown out nearly every time he goes. That should not happen to a guy with his speed and experience.

...It could have been a hit-and-run, though. Although, I still stand by my comment.

His speed isn't what it used to be IMO

_Sir_Charles_

The Astros may have 2 runs & 4 hits, but for the most part they've been seeing eye hits. Edinson's POUNDING the zone. 25 strikes...SIX balls.
