    My love of baseball each season is directly tied into how good my Astros are doing that year.
    This should answer any questions about whether I'm watching the All Star game tonight.



    At least Germany let Brazil score one while they were stomping their asses...

    Wow that's a whoopin', at home too. Astros with as many errors as hits wat up with that?

    I was in the Astrodome watching Noan Ryan pitch, they wore these shirts (I had one):



    I guess that was a long time ago since they're tearing the dome down now, sheesh.

    It was fun.

    I went to a bunch of games there back in the 90's when I was living in San Antonio,
    and moved here just before their new ball park opened.
    No Nolan Ryan for me, I had to settle for Bagwell and Biggio.

    They've been in their new one "Minute Maid Park" since 2000.
    It used to be Enron Field but we all know how that one worked out.
    At least no one from Minute Maid has been indicted yet.

    I heard that Messi was named MVP at the All Star Game.

    baseball seems like one of those sports i really should like - i idly watch it occasionally on one of the sports channels we get

    for those of us that are confounded by the terms, what is pct and gb above, and what do the figures under home and away represent?

    pct= teams winning percentage
    gb= games behind the first place team
    home= home won/loss record
    away= away win/loss record
