Garner: Manager of the Year

ASTROS WIN!!!  ASTROS LEAD 3-1!!!

Phil Garner has got to be the Manager of the Year.  He seems to be making all the right calls.  Whether it is switching Burke for Taveras or Burke for Lamb, his selections are paying off big time.  Also using Bruntlett late for defense and Taveras too (see catch on Tal’s Hill last night).

I am a little concerned about the umpiring tonight.  Tony LaRussa has been around the game a long time and his actions last night were meant to prove a point; although with the probable Cy Young award winner Carpenter going tonight, he may not need much help.  Garner did well getting his two cents in with the umpiring crew.

Nonetheless, I will be there tonight and will see the ‘Stros win big and go to their first World Series in franchise history.  Andy Pettitte will pitch a solid game and will beat Chris Carpenter.

GO ASTROS!!!

WELL DID YOU CATCH THAT BALL?

GO CARDINALS!

Ugh i’m so bummed right now. I think i’m gonna have another sleepless night. I hope they can win in St. Louis Misery.I just wish i had tickets to games 6 and 7.Go astros Go kick some *** in St. Louis.

Oh man… that was the definition of heart break.

LET’S GO STROS! We’re gonna take game 6!

I am a Missourian only by default, but everywhere I go I want to puke when I see all of these Pujols jerseys and Cards penants. I cant believe our misfortune last night. If Eckstein likes to take the hit so much, just make him go down. I have never missed living in Texas as much as I do right now. I just want to remain peaceful until the Stros KILL them tonight. I love the Astros!!!!!!!

Shaun:

It was in the true spirit of baseball that you gave those homerun balls back to the Astro organization. I applaud your decision. It is the sign of a true and dedicated fan of the Astros and baseball. I am devastated about the game last night but I know that the Astros can pull out a win. We need to support the team in a bigger way than we ever have before. We have to let them know that we are behind them and while it was a tough loss, that WE ARE THE ASTROS AND WE ARE GOING TO WIN!!!!! I am ashamed of the Houston Chronicle and I think they need to remove “Houston” from the name of their paper. They never write favorably about any of our sports team. I have on my Astro gear and have my Astro decorations on and around my desk. A true fan has to stick with their team through thick and thin. A true team will be rewarded!!! GO ASTROS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It´s time to support our astros more thaen ever. Definitely it really hurt yesterday, but keep in mind that we´ve outplayed the little birds from games 2 through 5.

It´s time to demostrate how tough the Astros are, and the essence of champions they have.

By the way….we hate the little birds.

As a native Houstonian, I’ve been waiting for this moment in time since I was 12 and started following the Astros. I am now living in the New Orleans area and I am positive Houston will win this to go on to the Series. The city has reached out to so many displaced New Orleanians. Houston deserves this and they’ve earned some good fortune. So forget about last night’s game. It’s over. The boys need our positive energy now. We’re going to pull this off. I know it. Keep the faith.

Looks like you needed to be on Crawford Avenue to catch that one last night. GO CARDS!!!!!!! On another note, a very nice gesture Shaun. Cooperstown is a great place full of nostalga, and magic. Your donation is sure to be a great addition. Thanks for being a great baseball fan. MEET ME IN ST. LOUIE……. IT’s gonna be a great I-55 series.

Shaun,

First and foremost, A BIG TEXAS THANKS for “steppin’ up to the plate” and giving those baseballs to Cooperstown. That was truly one of the most selflessness things I have ever seen. In this day and age where most people are trying to capitalize on situations like that, here you are, doing the RIGHT thing.

I don’t know how many more games like the 18th inning marathon, or Monday nights crushing 9th inning loss, I can take! I was sitting in left center field for Game 16 back in 1986. The good ol’ Astrodome shook, up until the Mets homered in the 16th. I was about 30 feet from that dinger so I can only imagine how exciting it must have been to catch not only one, but two, of those history-in-the-making balls. I never would have imagined I would experience anything as exciting as that 16 inning game, that is, until this NLCS. Based on all the stats and switches in that 18 inning game, I believe it was the greatest game EVER played.

Since the devastation from Katrina, I have NEVER been prouder to be a Houstonian. This city stepped up in ways no other city ever has. I believe it is fate that the Astros go on to the WS…and win. It is true what is said, God works in mysterious ways. BELIEVE!!! GO STROS!!!

AND THE ASTROS ARE GOING TO THE WORLD SERIES! 🙂
