Over .500 for the first time in 2008


"...and it's name is the Spilly Snowcone Machine"
Nice little 4 game winning streak going right now actually. That 22 inning marathon duel with the Pads may have sparked something within the, so far, disappointing 2008 Rockies by the looks of this Astros series. A nice mix of blowout, and close games in the first couple.
Tonight was as it should be - Cook for 7, Fuentes for 1, Corpas for 1. Cook=W. Let's keep it up with a win for the sweep tomorrow, and head back home with a nice bit of momentum. The NL West appears to be as wacky as ever...suddenly the Rockies are in second place. But that still means 4 games back of the red-hot D-Backs. By far the biggest second to first place deficit in the bigs at this point in the young season. That 1-5 record against AZ really hurts....I really do hate snakes.

A very nice stretch indeed. Let's get the road sweep against the Greeley boy. Got a little rally going in the 2nd here. At worst, a 5-4 roadie. 6-3 sounds much better though. Curse those Snakes!

aaaaannnndddd. back to .500

nice one there Fuentes... the staff lacks command.

That's Fuentes we all know and love....Pretty lame way to lose. Kazmat coming back to haunt the Rocks. Kind of saw that coming. Ubaldo looked great until he forgot how to throw strikes. Still take a winning road trek.

yeah.

KazMat the Revenge.

"In a world where ownership doesn't value 2nd basemen, one Japanese star has risen from the DL to stick it to the team that didn't resign his ass."

I saw the preview when I took the Ive to see Horton Hear's a Who. Didn't think I'd have to see the KazMat movie this afternoon...

Great intro, ST.....
Your KazMat movie trailer reminds me of that GEICO commercial, not the one with Frampton, however.

Sonic Tooth said...

thought you'd like the old Snoopy commercial jingle there YB...

sounds like a lot of blood in the house tonight.

A little surprised "steve" hasn't weighed in on the whole KazMat burn-job.

DeathTruck said...

Not to sound like a geeky sports nerd, but after Sat's game was actually the 2nd time we were over .500: 1-0.

Tons of blood for tonight.
