Edmonds, the human highlight reel in centerfield.

The hill probably comes into play about once a series. Unless the ball has some lift to allow a good centerfielder to get out there, it just turns home runs into doubles or triples.

Too bad the fans can't just sing "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" instead of this straining at being goody-goody.

Could you not do that again?!

Sorry, I was going for chocolate ice cream to console myself about the shutout. Ate the whole pint. I guess it worked :^)

What is wrong with these Astros fans? They're sitting there like they're shell-shocked. If this was the World Series (or even a regular season game) at Fenway Park in Boston, all 35,000 fans would be chanting - in unison - a deafening "Let's go Red Sox!!!"

You have to understand that Houston has a long, long history of seeing their teams collapse. It would be as if the Celtics and Bruins had never won any championships in Boston. The Houston Oilers blew the biggest lead in NFL history. They got robbed in a Pittsburgh playoff game so bad that the NFL added instant replay the next year in response. The University of Houston lost perhaps the biggest upset in the history of the NCAA championship game. In 1986 the Astros lost the greatest playoff game ever played. The list goes on and on, but we've seen it so many times before, a team chokes, messes up its head, and never recovers. This series we've lost the head of our closer, one of our setup guys, and now our best starting pitcher, not to mention that Roger Clemens may not pitch again this year, and may retire. It now is just a matter of when, not if, and the same old familiar taste in the mouth returns.

Reminds me of two songs, 'Secondhand Rose' and Howard Jones 'No One Is to Blame'. "You can dip your foot in the pool, but you can't have a swim..."

We're here to watch the game. All this other crap is distracting. BTW, can't anybody sing the National Anthem or God Bless America without all the falsetto, wavering interpretations?

Same with the Boston Red Sox. Remember... 86 years? 1918? ;-)

Hey, the Stros fans are sounding louder now... keep it up! :o)

No, never seen the flag pole get hit or get in the way. It's usually the incline that throws the outfielder off.

Not trying to minimize the long suffering of the Red Sox faithful, but anyone from Cleveland(which has it worst of all) or Houston knows that Boston has had it good compared to them. Look how many Celtic championships there were, Bruins, too, and then the Patriots. Houston finally got the Rockets 2 of 'em, but otherwise the futility spanned so many sports. I didn't mention the numerous meltdowns of nearby A&M and UT. They'll lose the Rose Bowl, if they even get there.

Anyway, I must stop to put on 'Sunrise, Sunset'...

I'm originally from Cleveland, and I don't think I'll ever see a title. The OSU championship 2 years ago was great though.

Jeez, did you see Bagwell throw his bat?

At first I thought he was going to wreck his shoulder again, but then on the replay I saw he threw it down left-handed.

Baggy may have to become a DH (and take a pay cut). He's from New England. Can Big Papi play first even adequately? I think the BoSox would rather go after Konerko, who can play first and is also a New Englander.

I hope this game is over soon. I'm going for a cholesterol test tomorrow morning and have to fast for 8 hours beforehand.

At least they'll get a "real life" test result on me. Let's see, bacon and eggs for breakfast, hot dogs for lunch, pastrami and cheese for dinner, topped off by a pint of ice cream for the White Sox.

I've earned my Zocor.

Am so glad someone is voicing what Ive been thinking about Houston sports for so long...as a Houston native, I have this bafflement of other cities fascination with their teams...Im so used to Houston teams choking up that any interest I might have had was siphoned away long ago.
