Atleast we are back to our best lineup.
Why is Edwin Maysonet starting over Kaz Matsui for the Astros?

A Corsair sighting. How do you feel about the Astros Corsair? School out?

The "Stros" just scored two more critical runs in the 6th to make the score 5-0. It happened because Morgan was playing WAY TOO FAR OFF THE LF LINE AGAIN!

WHY? WHY? WHY? :x :x :x :x :x :x :x

um.......STBHOF game again.........Pirate offense goes silent again.....sad

This is a bad loss in so many ways.

Again, we get shut down by a pitcher with an ERA of over 8.3.

We lose to one of the very few teams with a worse won loss record than us.

We need another series with the Nats, and quick, or else this thing is going to ten
games under .500, and the race to 100 losses is on.

How are those power numbers doing at third base and right field these days?

June is here, it ain't so "early" anymore.

You just can't rely on this team to turn up, No 9.

At least I wasn't too late going to bed.

Is McLouth went 0 on 4?

What a terrible game...for me there will be no way to reach .500 or over....

We are already tied again for the 2nd longest current losing streak at 3. We are tied with the A's who have also lost 3 straight. The Nationals have lost 4 in a row. We are also now just 1 game ahead of the Astros.
We are the 6th worst team in baseball right now, and the 4th worst in the National league. We trail the Cardinals by 7 games for the Wild card.

I thought it was worth an update on how things are looking :x
