Is that guy a member of the Austin Facial Hair Club?

It is actually Jerk-o, which is hilarious and probably motivation to be a very good athlete.

Harvey beasting, or the Padres being the Padres?? I can't be objective here. Incapable.


Hard for me to be objective, too, but he just looks like the total package ever since he came up. Control, multiple pitches, changes speed and he has that killer mentality, too.

Lincecum is a pretty big dog tonight considering he's facing Beckett. Vegas doesn't think too much of him, apparently.

Parra is certainly not making me miss having Eaton on my DL thus far. ;-D

I don't believe the Astros are tanking just to get the #1 pick but they didn't really try to make their team better this offseason. There are two things that rebuilding teams need to do: 1st - Don't commit big/medium money to FA's. 2nd - Get young players playing time to see which can be average or better. They did both and the result will be an awful team. Astros fans should be hoping they don't fall under 50 wins but there's a good chance that happens.

The Marlins will be giving them stiff competition for that #1 pick.

Interesting... CBS is attempting to track Holds in their real-time scoring (even though it says that is not a stat they track in real-time scoring). They are currently awarding one to Pestano, but doesn't that disappear since Perez blew the save?

I'm still learning Holds. For example, I don't understand why O'Flaherty didn't earn one Monday considering he "preserved" the win despite giving up a run. Walden had a similar line and did get the hold.

The Astros are fielding the perfect team for a rebuild. A bunch of retreads that could be valuable trade chips if they happen to fix whatever flaw they had but are easy to let go of if they stink and are all cheap. No reason to waste service time of young guys and no reason to sign guys that have absolutely no upside like say Polanco. The Marlins are the team doing it completely wrong, the Astros are fielding a very smart team.
