…on so many levels.
We’ve lost five in a row, we have the same record as the Brewers, and we’re tied for third place at seven games back. We’re just barely over .500.
What the heck happened to the Astros team that was rocking the NL Central when I left for Los Angeles? I haven’t been able to watch any of the past few games but Sportscenter and Baseball Tonight have basically kept me up to date. This team stinks. And Jack Cassel got sent down… again! I’m gonna miss him.
There are good things, though. I’m glad to see that Chris Sampson, one of my favorite players (because he’s NICE! he’s so sweet), is feeling more confident since his move to the bullpen. That’s very, very good. And Lance Berkman is still a beast–and kicking Pujols’ sorry bum in All-Star voting.
My Rockies lost last night–pathetic, pathetic game. Tulo was taking fielding practice, though, so that was exciting.
Where Is He Now?
Today we’re going to check up on Morgan Ensberg. Remember 2005? Aah, World Series berth, Brad Lidge got ruined, and Morgan Ensberg was amazing. Unfortunately for him, 2005 was a really, really long time ago. He might be making Derek Jeter laugh, but he didn’t exactly make the Yankees staff laugh. He was DFAd on Sunday to make room for Scott Patterson on the 20-man. Poor guy. He was so excited to go to San Diego because he lives there, and now no one really wants him. I mean, his batting average was .203. I can’t say I particularly blame the staff for letting him go. What do you think they’re gonna do with him? I say release.
I think that’s it for now. I’ll be returning to Dodger Stadium on Wednesday to watch the Rox take on Clayton Kershaw (*gulp*). That should be interesting. And then I head home on Friday–and Saturday and Sunday I’m gonna catch the Aggies against Rice! Gig ’em!
