throws like a girl

I think about baseball all the time.

Moving day


In much the same way that I have hung up my signed Roy Oswalt photo above my desk but not yet unpacked my suitcases at home, I am relocating this blog in the most half-assed way possible. Future updates can...

Something happened on the field: Astros win first game in nine days.


One way you can tell that the Astros finally won last night is that Cubs Fan, who is under most circumstances serene about the Cubs/Astros rivalry and frequently upbraids me for being so unpleasant when our teams are playing each...

Occupational therapy.


I knew tonight's game had the potential to be frustrating, and so during my lunch hour today, I headed over to the hardware store and bought this elaborate ready-to-assemble "multi-function trolley" (as the box describes it) to keep my hands...

The afternoon before I hit the road, I listened to a pregame interview with Phil Garner, in which he told Alan Ashby that the 2005 Astros were a team that had the potential to specialize in late-inning comebacks. "Of course...

St. Louis 7, Houston 3: The "waiting for the movers to show up" edition


Here is the weirdest thing I saw in the stands at Opening Day: a fan wearing a John Mabry t-shirt. Are these commercially available? Did the fan perhaps have it custom-made? Was it a member of the Mabry family? Sadly,...

When you leave this coast, take me with you


Before I get into my usual sentimental remarks about Opening Day, I would be remiss if I didn't share this quote from Lance Berkman in today's Chronicle: "I'd pick us third, too ... I see it that way, too, on...

Why not here? Why not now?


Salon's King Kaufman weighed in with his National League picks for the season yesterday, and to save you the subscription fees or the ad views, I'll just go ahead and post his remarks about the Astros here: The Astros are...
