    Stop trying to start political discussion FSN Ohio!

"If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Ah. An excellent start for Harang.

    Bad throw by Hanigan on the SB attempt but a pretty weak effort by OCab to bring it in.

    Keppinger does his Keppinger act and reaches out to tap a grounder past Harang to score Bourn from 3B.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Just rewound and cannot disagree more with the assessment of that play.

    Strike 'em out, Throw 'em out. End of 1. 1-0 Astros.

    Rolen plunked, because they fear him.

    Not a bad inning from Harang, really. The Bourn HBP obviously was bad, but from there he got a groundout, a hit from Lee on a good pitch that he fought off and then a K of Berkman. He seemed to be locating his fastball well, but obviously he didn't have much of a feel for his slider.
