Sweet win, sweet sweep - on to Houston (which I hope we won't take lightly - don't think we will).
I did the same thing.
And yes, on to Houston. I just bought my tickets to both Friday night & Sunday afternoon. With the move to the AL it looks like it might be my last time seeing my Redlegs in person for a LOOOOOOOONG while.

And I agree with this. I don't know if they'll do the Bruce into center thing. But Drew seems to play better in Texas. He has a pretty large following here in Minute Maid (as does Jay). But I definitely want Drew in center in Houston's big back yard.
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
