Fisher saying he saw the ball, but his heart wanted it to be down...so he went with his heart. 

Wow.

"I fucked up and it cost the team an important baserunner."

On loop,  for every version of the question he gets.

Instead he goes The Bachelor on us.

When he finishes his major league rehab assignment we'll be in good shape.

That's exactly what he's doing and that's why Blum and Bagwell treated his ABs the way they did.   If he's healthy he'll hit,  but it won't be right away.

Last week was bonus.  Since then we've lost Springer and an injury call up who was producing in spots at the plate and playing gold glove caliber defense.

This is after losing a starting pitcher.

IMHO Best part of the game was Bagwell's color commentary

At one point during the game, I wish I could remember some details, he said something about - of all people - he needed adult supervision. 
Luved it!  Don't we all.
Did anyone else catch that?

Part 2: Hearing how the hitters analyzed the pitchers and helped each other with their own blind spots - being locked in on one particular thing and missing other things that were going on.  It felt as if he was coaching the listening fans on how better to appreciate baseball...

He joked about Biggio to likely cheat on the HR contest by getting extra cuts...

Nothing worthwhile comes without pain, ask any Astros fan.

It’s time to send Fisher to another organization.  “Going with his heart” cost the Astros a valuable out late in the game.
Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.

Wow.

I'm not sure which is dumber: thinking that in the first place, or saying it out loud afterward.
I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy
