Slammin' The LID(ge)

The waiting is indeed the hardest part.
Woke up early to catch the 11:30 a.m. game (I work nights usually) and waited.
And waited.
Then, well, I took a walk. Then I waited.
Then the Astros started working walks. And they WON.

That's the Brad Lidge we all love and know.

These are the Astros that turned a a baseball audience into a legit Baseball Town, U.S.A.
Ready for Hyperbole's?

ROYoung (let's just rename the trophy).

The 'Stache = Inventor of clutchitude.

Lance. Most Valuable Player on a National League team that has no other legit everday masher. They got hitters, but no Lance's. Pujols missed time, and is the best hitter, but not most valuable PLAYER. Ryan Howard has Chase Utley and Jimmy Rollins. Both MVP candidates.
Plus that Phillies infield rivals the NYY and NYM as the top infield in all of baseball. Sorry, Cleveland.

Roy goes seven strong to go with an RBI walk and improves his record to 15-8. Woulda coulda shoulda been a third-straight year 20-game winner.
Oh Well, I'll take my boys.
Ensberg RBI walk.
Most importantly, Adam Everett with a beautiful RBI-single back up the gut with Chris Burke taking off for third. Good baserunning, good hitting.

Now we wait.
To see if the Brewers can take down the Cardinals.
Doug Davis vs. Jason Marquis. I like the Wisconsinerites chances. Go Sausages!
Make the Cardinals flightless, like the Penguin.

Brewers!!!! W!!
1/2 game out.
