Heartbreak in H-Town

It's still hard to tell who swung harder: Pujols or the momentum.

I'd really like to know who was calling the pitches in the top of the ninth. In what bizarro world do you decide to give Edmonds four unhittables inside, then smear one across the meat of the plate for the best hitter in the series? Mistake of mistakes... It is always infinitely better for us for Edmonds to make contact than for Pujols to do the same.

I bet Lights-out Lidge would give ANYTHING to have that hanging slider back.

Anyway, enough fretting. This is deja vu, but the Roy-O/Mulder matchup is way more in our favor than the Pettitte/Carpenter one ever was. Oswalt was a Red Bird killer last week, and there are no signs that Thursday will be any different.

And just to make sure it doesn't get lost in the shuffle, let's hear it for Bigg. He's still clutch, after all these years.

Let's go Astros, clap clap clapclapclap.

I stopped by to talk you off the ledge, but you seem to be taking it pretty well. That was un-freaking-believable. You've got to let Edmonds swing the bat with Pujols on deck.

Let's hope Lidge doesn't go "Donny Moore" after the season.

This is why the BoSox can't let Manny go! Without Manny, Papi won't EVER get a pitch to swing at. Sorry bout your boys Toonie, they'll do it in game 6.

Yeah, you know, it would've been nice and all for 'em to win it at home, but I'm not really worried about them losing the series. They were soooooo close though! One pitch away!

I predict Lidge saves Game 6, Astros split in Chicago, win it in 5 here in Houston.

Game on!

The game was incredible. And I swear to everything that means something to me that my dog starting humping my leg as soon as Pujols cranked that home run.
