Oswalt is off to a terrible start, although he did well in his last start (which made Lisa happy). Me? I could use more of the terrible version right about now…

  1. Surely one more bad start wouldn’t be too much to ask of Oswalt, no? It’ll just make his season story all that much more exciting when he comes back after *4* bad starts, rather than 3. (Especially if the following good starts happen to be against teams with names like D’backs, Dodgers or Rockies per se.)

  2. now geoff honey,

    we JUST lost our second best pitcher and this team is ALREADY suckulous enough. we do NOT need roy to suck again.

    besides, you got peavy going tomorrow and brandon backe has not been Playoff Brandon.

    of course, if the game is nationally televised, brandon gonna give mr cy young a run for his money…

    oh yeah, and our “closer” who i’m gonna nickname “ulcer” has a very good chance of scrfewing up any victory, so you really don’t need to curse poor ol roy…

  3. Paul McAnulty fans can be happy, he’s starting in LF tonight and batting 2nd. Iguchi is moved down to the 8th spot.

  4. Not a good start. Oswalt with the 6 pitch inning and then the leadoff walk (which of course turned into a SB) to Bourn. I guess you know it’s not going to be your night when you walk .211 hitting Michael Bourn to lead off the game.

  5. This can’t be happening.

  6. Unfortunately, the leadoff walk was the good part of the inning.

  7. On the road again and watching mlbtv. I hate having to listen to the other announcers. These are Astros announcers right? Or MLB’s own? Germano is getting hammered.

  8. Is it still too early to panic?
