Chris Burke steps up again
Every so often, a player comes in and steps up at crunch time. Someone who has always been a good player, but they take it to another level when it counts the most. Chris Burke is certainly doing it for the Astros this post-season. Watching Chris these last few games was like watching Josh Beckett of the Florida Marlins in 2003 and the performance he put up in the World Series. It is just amazing to see someone take it to the next level, especially when it is for the home team. I think it is a tribute to the Astros front office and farm system, which is one of the best in baseball.
As for me and my family, we will be going to Minute Maid Park today to present, together with the Astros, the Berkman and Burke home-run balls to the Baseball Hall of Fame and watch the team workout.
