GameCast: Astros vs. Cardinals, 12:10 PM

The first sign that the apocalypse is near:

Orlando Palmeiro is batting lead-off for the Astros... and he led off today's game with a double. Berkman capitalized by driving him in, one batter later.

I seem to remember that, for reasons unbeknownst to me, we don't seem to hit Jeff Suppan very well. This is why I'm a bit in shock.

Single, single, HBP. Jeez, pull it together, Taylor!

Fortunately, Taylor escaped damage when Larry Bigbie (whom Phat-C would describe as "an overpriced Larry Bigbie," but whom I would characterize as "a poor man's Larry Bigbie") struck out looking with bases loaded. Huzzah!

Orlando 2-for-2, with another run scored. Wow.

Dave Borkowski just struck out Poo-Holes. This just doesn't happen that often.

Nice work, Borky.

2:37 PM  
Blogger Shafty said...

Uh, he struck out Rolen, too. WHEE!

Morgan SUCKS right now. What's the deal?

2:48 PM  
Blogger Phat-C said...

Man, Bruntlett's photo on GameDay looks like he's ready to kick ass!

2:56 PM  
Blogger Phat-C said...

Lane's been relegated to sacrificing. At least THAT way he'll move a runner over...

2:59 PM

Willy struck out looking with a man on second in the ninth.

Great. Great.

I'm so freaking sick of called third strikes!!!! Swing the freaking BAT!!!!

3:02 PM  
Blogger Phat-C said...

Come on, Munson.

3:02 PM  
Blogger Shafty said...

Just about everybody in our lineup (not counting Lamb, really) sucks right now. Willy's now 0-for-5.

Morgan's one hit came when it didn't count; he's stranded at least 3 runners today.

Isringhausen looks like a good candidate to join the "stupid looking, crooked-hat-wearing mug shot" club.

3:04 PM  
Blogger Shafty said...

Dammit! After a leadoff single, Bruntlett dies at second base. Great clutch hitting, boys.

3:06 PM  
Blogger Phat-C said...

I can't believe how often we refuse to win. It's embarrassing really. FIVE DOUBLES, and we've got 3 runs... on mostly groundouts.

3:07 PM

Wheels needs to mow 'em down. Then we score so The Mole can blow the save.

3:08 PM  
Blogger Shafty said...

I pretty much hate Aaron Miles. He joins Eckstein in the "Fernando Vina Cheapass" Club.

3:10 PM  
Blogger Phat-C said...

He's nobody outside of the Cardinals. At least Eckstein was already good.

It's not tough to get good pitches when you're one of three players the other team actually pitches to.

3:11 PM  
Blogger Phat-C said...

WHEELS!!!

3:11 PM  
Blogger Shafty said...

What sucks is that, by virtue of being unable to score Bruntlett, we're assured of having to pitch to Poo-Holes AND Rolen. Whee.

3:13 PM  
Blogger Phat-C said...

They'd better not walk Pujols just to get to Rolen. I can hear it now, "Well, you don't want us to pitch to Pujols, now you do?" How 'bout you get him OUT?

3:14 PM  
Blogger Shafty said...

Well, they already IBB'd Pujols earlier, and Rolen made them pay for it.

3:16 PM  
Blogger Phat-C said...

Boy, that was huge. You've got to keep that pest off the bases.

3:16 PM  
Blogger Shafty said...

Now we can watch Morgan strike out again with the game on the line.

3:17 PM  
Blogger Phat-C said...

On Pujols/Rolen: my point exactly. The key to getting these guys out, though, starts with not GROOVING a pitch down the middle. If he puts wood on a good pitch and muscles it out, good job to him. If you throw a grapefruit up there, shame on you.

3:18 PM  
Blogger Phat-C said...

Looking, no less.

3:18 PM  
Blogger Phat-C said...

Shafty, I've got an AWESOME picture of Special K for you.

3:18 PM  
Blogger Shafty said...

Look at the freaking pitch that Fat Elvis struck out on!

3:21 PM  
Blogger Phat-C said...

DAMMIT!!! MOOOOOOOOOOOOORE strikeouts!

3:21 PM  
Blogger Phat-C said...

You really knock the isht out of that one, Morgan.

3:21 PM  
Blogger Shafty said...

"M Ensberg fouled out to first."

FREAKING TERRIBLE.

3:21 PM  
Blogger Phat-C said...

Lamb's gonna' have to go yard if we're going to win this game.

Isringhausen: "People train goes outta'... s...s...Stubville..."

3:23 PM  
Blogger Shafty said...

Cowards wouldn't give Mike Hammer a chance to yank one out.

3:23 PM  
Blogger Phat-C said...

C'mon, Burke... time for some freaking heroics!

3:23 PM

"C Burke this month: .154"

Did you see where LaRUSSa said that Albert is just "so beautiful"

That = GAY.

3:24 PM  
Blogger Shafty said...

Yeah, I'd meant to comment on that LaRussa remark at some point.

3:26 PM  
Blogger Phat-C said...

*sighs* sIssy tries to pickoff Lamb.

3:26 PM  
Blogger Shafty said...

Shiite.

3:26 PM  
Blogger Phat-C said...

AGAIN!

Damn, don't you know, punk? Lamb is the Dunta of baseball... you don't throw at Dunta!

3:27 PM

MORE.

In the immortal words of your old Lafayette coach:

"You guys f__king suck!"

"The question is how much more [bad] could this [game] be? And the answer is none, none more [bad]."

3:28 PM  
Blogger Phat-C said...

Loved that guy. So inspirational. I really felt like he believed in us, you know?

3:28 PM  
Blogger Shafty said...

Absolutely stunning Spinal Tap reference.

3:28 PM  
Blogger Shafty said...

I can't help but laugh every time I think of your coach saying that to ya'll, though...

3:29 PM  
Blogger Phat-C said...

I know, it is immortal.

On a game note, explain to me why we're switching Fat Elvis and Private Pain NOW.

3:31 PM  
Blogger Phat-C said...

C'mon, Russ... sack up and Bonds him!

3:32 PM  
Blogger Phat-C said...

here we go.

3:32 PM  
Blogger Shafty said...

Private Mendoza, you mean?

Gee, I wonder which corner of the strike zone Springer's going for on this Pujols at-bat?

3:32 PM  
Blogger Phat-C said...

Rolen-haters, lock and load.

3:33 PM  
Blogger Shafty said...

No, no, keep the ball DOWN, Springer.

3:35 PM  
Blogger Shafty said...

Yeah, beeotch.

3:38 PM  
Blogger Shafty said...

Another strikeout!

3:43 PM  
Blogger Shafty said...

And Special K enters the game!

3:48 PM  
Blogger Shafty said...

Alas, that ALSO means that Mike Gallo had to come in, too.

3:48 PM  
Blogger Shafty said...

Here we go...

3:48 PM  
Blogger Shafty said...

Should have been strike three.

3:51 PM  
Blogger Shafty said...

Right now I hate Mike Gallo.
