And if so, just how bummed are you about getting swept by the Pirates? Two awesome starting pitcher performances wasted, pretty weak relief, and very unimpressive offense so far. I'm glad they have a day off to get it together before going up against the Cardinals.

There have been some bright points. Luke Scott hit a homer, and then when he got injured, Jason Lane came in and hit a homer as well. Biggio is hitting well. But most of the rest of the line-up is struggling so far. Oh well; it's just one series. They do need to get it together soon though. Don't want this trend to continue.

Anyone else want to run Brad Lidge out of town? I'm going to keep a count of the number of games he gives up, much like the Biggio count to 3000 hits.

Bump. Nobody? Starting a series with St. Loius tonight, which is big time.

Don't you think it's just a little bit too predictable for us to be Brewers fans? ;)

I was an "Astroboy" back in the day but really haven't kept up with them since I moved.

Where is Seabrook? I'm from Conroe. Live awhile in Crockett, then Lufkin before winding up in South GA...

Seabrook is southeast of Houston, very near NASA's Johnson Space Center.
