White pin-stripes.
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it
Truth isn't easy, the easy part's shit

You're right... they are wearing the white alternate, NOT pinstripes.  They just showed the sac fly during the WAS-PHI game.

CB Bucknor just makes em up as he goes.  Couldn't the league send us someone HALF-competent for the biggest game of the season?

Right, it's not his fault about the offense, but that ring-up on Biggio has me red-hot.

Damn it Berg! When he doesn't hit, our line up suffers badly.

Berkman's hit by pitch looked like it hurt.

Since this looks like it's now the GZ: Who pitches the 8th?  I doubt we'll see Lidge pitch two innings after last night.

I think it will depend on any runs being scored by the Astros in the 8th.

Come on Astros, play add on.

Irony is so ironic: the commercial right before Lidge took the mound - Scott Baio guest stars on "Arrested Development".  Seriously, any doubt that I had that Lidge would go 1-2-3 in the ninth went away that quick!

Gotta love the Baio when it makes a sudden and much needed appearance to sooth the nerves.

Bucknor at least was terrible for both sides. Lidge got two ankle-high strike calls in the 9th.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.
