Will Lowrie come back to the Astros next year?

I hope not.

That’s still a pretty impressive 1-7 hitters. If this team is to succeed this year, it will be via the bludgeon.

Ok…roll call:

Got my Love Street and Padron 1964 Anniversary torpedo.

I’m here, but will read more / post less. I’m having breakfast now (in Singapore).


Turley 2016 rattlesnake ridge Zinfandel. It’s pretty good.

Someday I have to get back to Singapore.

Come on…it’s Opening Day. Reach down and find a pair.

Some day I will be Turley worthy. That day has not come yet.


Altuve flies to CF on the first pitch

You know somebody.


Brantley…0-2…takes one right down the middle for a ball…wow…singles to CF…first knock of 2021 belongs to Uncle Mike

Yeah, but they know me too. That works against me.
