Scoreboard Watching: Cardinals @ Astros, 5p (Sept 24, 2012)

Lance Lynn (16-7, 3.79) vs. Fernando Abad (0-5, 5.11).

Faced with all the momentum of a Nationals 12-2 trouncing of the Brewers, pushing Milwaukee back to a tie with the Dodgers (3.0 GB second wild-card St. Louis), the Astros decide to throw Fernando Abad, a pitcher who is not only 0-5 this year but also has ONLY ONE WIN IN HIS ENTIRE MLB CAREER.

Thanks a lot for the help, Houston! Hope the DH treats you well in the AL West!

Jerks.

UPDATE: Well, maybe not all of you.

If the Stros are only going to use Fernandos, can we send them El Toro?

I really wish I could find the clip of the sportscaster that accidentally called them the Houston Assholes.

Well Spanky's already donating more students (in the thousands).

Hideo Nomo said...

Yeah! We caught the Brewers!

Paul said...

No Refs have ruled Golden Tate has caught the Brewers.

Dusty Baker said...

Are we going to have a "WTF are these replacement refs thinking" thread?

I remember the Kool Aid flavor that we just simply called "green." Green as flavor. Like purple as flavor (not grape). We thought we were cool calling it martian juice. Man, I wish I had some green Kool Aid right about now.

With some PGA mixed in.
