    BP is so animated when putting on the brakes

"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."

    His hunchback move isn't helping him. If you're good, like Cueto, you're allowed to be colorful. This guy is just weird.

    Big hit by Luddy. This might be crazy.... but should Bruce bunt? Normally I'm not a huge advocate of bunting, but in this case...

    LOL, will Dusty bunt with Bruce who will face a lefty?

    Don't be shocked if he does.

    Got his pitch, ripped it into left. Lucky by the Mets to keep BP on 2nd.

    BP is lucky he didn't blow out both hamstrings and rip his groin to shreds with that sudden-stop move lol.

    When I first read this I thought it said "Astros on a roll." I thought I accidentally clicked on a link from 2004.

    I would not bunt with Bruce. He's a fly ball hitter, so the DP isn't likely.

    Risk is that Phillips is thrown out at third.

    Bruce doesn't bunt often, could mess it up.

    I'd let him swing away.

    Guessing Dusty has him bunt.

    The way Bruce is hitting, you have to sacrifice...he is struggling...can't afford a strike out.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Edgin our way to a run.
