    Nice to Reddick's name in the lineup. Still can't understand why he's hitting behind Drew.....

    Hopefully Beckett dominates, the bats stay hot and we take a four-game winning streak home (with a winning road trip).

    Go Sox!!

                            Hey, "Yammi's" playing SS today and Reddick's hitting in a power slot. Now this is a game to watch......at least for a little while. "T's" starting to get with the program.....for today anyway.

    Very interesting shot of the radiant Heide with the legs and torso of some fat slob in the background wearing a hideous pair of shorts that looked more like boxer briefs.

    Getting the Astro's feed for this series. Have to say that the Houston announcers do a good job. They are well prepared, informative and pleasant to listen to. Cannot say that about a lot of announce teams.

    I was noticing that her breasts look like they were mounted very low on her chest.  Probably an optical illusion created by the shirt she was wearing.  I will be interested in a second look though.

    Josh must be getting used to the lack of run support.

    A hometown take on 20-year-old Houston starter Jordan Lyles (from last January):

    http://www.thestate.com/2011/02/27/1714386/jordan-lyles-the-next-big-thing.html

    Lyles is a year younger than former Red Sox prospect Casey Kelly, who has posted a 4.48 ERA in 16 starts this season in the Double A Texas League where hitters are batting .290 against him.

    In the June 2008 draft, the Red Sox took Kelly with the 30th pick while the Astros took Lyles with the 38th pick.

    Entering this season, the Baseball America prospect rankings had Kelly at No. 31 and Lyles at No. 42.

    I've been listening to them, too, 'cause I needed a break from Jerry.  They are so much more low key, and yes, quite informative.  Of course, it means missing out on Heidi.

    Pitchers are going to start pitching Reddick a little tougher now. It will be up to him to adjust or his bubble will quickly burst.

    I've been listening to the Astros broadcast as well and I believe the lead announcer is Milo Hamilton, who went to high school with my late mother in the early 1940s in tiny Fairfield, Iowa. I was pleasantly surprised that Hamilton, who turns 84 this year, remains in broadcasting.

    Poor Youk.  Now he gets spiked on his ankle.  He needs a couple of days off.
