The Astros had plenty of chances to win Game One, but Joe “Dirt” Crede always seemed to be standing right in the fucking way. Losing our starter after two innings also sucked, though Clemens wasn’t too sharp anyway.
Still, the Sox look beatable, and the Astros can even it up today and bring the Series home to Houston. And we’ve got to have these wins when Pettitte and Oswalt pitch, especially if Roger can’t come back at full strength.

Well it looks bone-ass cold there, but hey, it’s October. Too bad about Roger’s hamstring, but not a surprise, I guess. And it couldn’t have helped when Asswipe Pierzynski bailed out halfway through a pitch.
The Weather Channel says there’s a 60% chance of rain in Chicago for Game Two, with a temperature in the 40s. So it’ll be even colder and shittier than last night.
