"The agony of being an Astros fan"

That's Ben Shpigel in the New York Times. That's the brutal truth, although Shpigel can't possibly understand what he wrote unless he's an Astros fan himself. Bill Simmons almost gets there, and notes the analogies to 1986. Not sure I needed that.

Still, we march on, and hopefully the team will learn from this. Lesson #1: You must throw strikes to Edmonds in that situation. He can't beat you, and besides that he's a head case compared to Pujols, who's an assassin.

On an unrelated note, JC Bradbury deserves a share of Leo Mazzone's next contract. His post on Leo's prowess is # 4 on the google page for "Leo Mazzone." He'd make a fine agent.
