Minute Maid Park

Here’s video from the Crack Technical Staff from the roof of our hotel. The sold-out crowd at Minute Maid Park sure sounded happy about a steal.

    Wow. Nice view of the ballpark.

    I will probably be in Scranton, PA tonight, watching the Louisville Bats play the Scranton-Wilkes Barre Yankees, but if I weren’t, I’d probably be keeping an eye on the Astros game. I always liked Obi-Shawn Chacon.

    BubbaFan, you are truly ubiquitous in your baseball fandom.

    Chac was a Yankee for a couple of years. He’s a rather uneven pitcher. I suspect one reason is injury. He’s had knee problems for a long time, but has declined surgery.

    His start this year is typical of him. Eight walks already, but an ERA of 3.75. Torre always suspected him of pitching around the guys he thought could hit him. But he was often amazingly successful anyway. That’s why we called him Obi-Shawn. It was like he used Jedi mind tricks or something, constantly getting into jams, but somehow getting out of them.
