Whoa, the Pistons won a game...maybe it'll be a decent series after all. We played darts at a local bar while we watched the game, and I found out that I kind of suck at darts. Actually, I do well in team play, but individually, nope. I did nail a double bullseye when we had to have it, though. That was big.
The mighty Bruce Chen (actually, he has been pretty good this year) shut down the Astros bats yesterday, and we lost 6-1, giving Andy Pettitte another loss-in-which-he-actually-pitched-well. Jason Lane had a double and a single and we drew 6 walks, but couldn't get much going. Top prospect Chris Burke went 0-for-4 and is now at .179 / .216 / .253 in 95 at-bats. He's gotta be feeling some pressure. Other options aren't really that attractive, though (Berkman to LF / Lamb to 1B?), so he should get time to snap out of it.
We're doing a full tune-up on Andy's Frisbee Van today. It's got over 180K miles and has been through hell (West Texas) and back numerous times. I'm telling Andy to not spend more on fixing the van than the van itself is worth (maybe 2,000? maybe not), and he damn well better listen to me. But he does love this van.
