Imagine if they still had Carlos Lee….

The Astros have won 14 out of their past 15 games and are making a serious push for the NL Wild Card.  They are in a tie with the Phillies, at 3 games behind the Brewers.  Roy Oswalt is doing his best Orel Hershiser impression, by pitching 32 1/3 scoreless innings in a row.  The Bulldog owns the record at 59 consecutive innings.  There is no way in hell Oswalt comes near that record.  Even if he does pitch a shutout in his next start, he is going to get rocked by Jay Bruce, Joey Votto, and any other Red not named Corey Patterson in his next one.

The Astros do have a very good chance at coming back and winning the wildcard.  All they have left is the Marlins, Pirates, Reds, Braves, and then a couple makeup games against the Cubs.  Because of Ike, this race might come down to the very last night.

Houston is trying to do their best impression of last year’s Rockies team, but who is going to step to the plate and take on the role of last year’s Mets team?

I guess Hunter Pence's girlfriend is giving up bj's to the whole squad

I guess Hunter Pence's girlfriend is giving up BJs to the whole squad......can the Reds borrow her next year?
