  • I'll let you guys/gals decide if this is bulletin board material

    QUOTE
    Nothing fazes them
    After a 4-1 win in Game 2 of the National League Championship Series, the Astros flew home Thursday night because of where they've been as much as anything they have done.

    "As I've said before, our club is unusual," Astros manager Phil Garner said. "Things that might knock other teams down haven't seemed to do that to us."

    Like the mighty Cards. The Astros can beat them on the power and ferocity of Roy Oswalt and untouchable stuff of Lidge because nothing else has rattled or intimidated this team. What would scare everyone's pick to return to the World Series?

    They can go 0-for-14 with runners in scoring position — as they did until Chris Burke singled in the eighth to drive in Lance Berkman — and still win.

    They can weather an impressive Cardinals performance in Game 1 as if it never happened.

    They have the kind of confidence that is indefinable but obvious. The most talented team in this series still might be the Cardinals. In fact, the best one still might be the Cards — they've got a better batting average, better power numbers, better defense.

    But the more confident one is the Astros. The one that looks too tough to overcome, with three games set for Minute Maid Park, is the Astros.

    "I think we've been through so much together as a team, and that's what it is," said Lidge, who again put his cleat prints inside many Cardinals' heads with a scoreless eighth and ninth Thursday.

    Lidge has given up just five hits — that's hits, not runs — against the Cardinals since 2003.

    "We didn't really go out and pick anybody up, so the same guys have been at it the whole year," Lidge said. "That helped us."

    They can come into Busch Stadium, where the Astros had lost five consecutive postseason games, and hardly flinch.

    Someone in the organization said before Thursday's first pitch: "Enjoy the night. This will be the last game ever played at Busch Stadium."

        Could be, but as long as we can't hit Lidge, probably not.

        They have lidge, we have Izzy.... I wouldn't mind if Izzy just threw slow, it's the constant runners on base that drive me crazy!

            Man, am I pissed, 007.

            I just called the Astros front office, and I let them have it.

            I think I might have ordered 2006 season tickets for the Texans in the process though.

            All those computer-automated message services were a little confusing. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif[/img]

                Hubris isn't necessarily bulletin board worthy, but it's not smart.

                Someone's sure making it a lot easier to dislike the Astros, though.
                The noise was good, but I thought they phoned in a lot of the funk.

                        "Bulletin board material" is for Harry High School players. IMO, if a pro athlete or team needs to have a sentence in a newspaper column to serve as a rallying point, then they have bigger issues.

                        As fat as the 1967 "Lonborg and champange" was concerned, let's not forget those were the Red Sox. They were destined to lose. The better team won.
