Game has started.  JD just missed a bases loaded 2B/HR (foul), and struck out on a crappy pitch.  Laird went 3-0 before walking on the 3-2 pitch.  Corporan grounded out to SS to end the threat.  

Middle 1: HOU 1, FTC(o-ards) 0

The Bus Ride Discussion Forum / 2012 Organizational Standings
« on: September 18, 2012, 07:25:21 pm »
The Astros top the list in BA's 2012 Organization Standings & League Champs (domestic teams only) with an overall .546 winning percentage and a combined 70 games over .500.

BA notes in the article below just how marked a difference this year has been for the Astros MiLB teams:

Houston finished last in organization standings in 2011, 29th in 2010, last in 2009, last in 2008 and 26th in 2007. No other team has come close to matching the Astros' recent run of futility.

And a link to JJ Cooper's article about the system: Astros Turn Into Winners At Minor League Level.

Talk Zone / Simmer on this for a sec...

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Gene Collier has a nice little farewell column to the Astros, as they played their last game in Pittsburgh last night not with a bang, but with a whimper: "Woeful Astros in a league of their own."

The lede:
Not to be presumptuous, but I think I can speak for all of Pittsburgh when I express the city's sincere thanks to the Houston Astros for bringing us 51 seasons of generally dreadful National League baseball.

Simmered on it for a sec?!?  Now let 'er rip!!!
