Game 73 Preview

Andy Pettitte (L) 6-7, 5.44 for the 'Stros

vs.

Jose Contreras 7-0, 2.96 for the ChiSox

This is a rematch of last season's World Series. Let's see how we do against this lefty. Are we going to hold to recent form and rock him or our form for most of the season and make him look like Sandy Koufax?

My Pick to Click is Joltin' Joe Crede.
He's been pretty hot as of late, and I have a hunch he'll continue with it.

Pick to Click: if he gets the start (and I think he will) Pablo Ozuna. If not, I'll go with Juan Uribe.

I didn't realise until reading his page at baseball-reference.com that Pablo's almost 32 years old.

It's shocking that he's that old. I actually won a five dollar bet because of Pablo's age. My friend refused to believ he was over 30 so he bet me five bucks.

ok I'll join the pick crowd tonight, I'll go with Jermaine "Crash" Dye. He'll put on his MVP cape for the Astros visit.

I'll go with Pods.

Heh heh.

Big ups tonight to:

* Contreras for his bazillionth win in a row
* The bottom of the order, which got all the RBIs that Pods didn't get
* Riske!

If there's a category for begrudging respect for opposition players, Biggio's at-bat in the 5th, and Borkowski's pitching job would probably win (although Borkowski did give up a run and all I know is what I was able to follow from online).

Am I glad Pablo DIDN'T get the start...do I get props for picking his spot? ;-)

The count was service able again, maybe he took a breath after being up 6-0 leading to the HR's.

Big Ups to...

Grand Slam Pods (although I think he should have caught that home run ball, am I asking too much?) Think he's gonna round the bases tonight with his playmate wife after that?

The bullpen...getting stronger, Riske is looking like a steal, and Bobby is, well, I can't think of a smart enough superlative to describe him

Crede had a pretty good game, definitely not as high caliber as Pods performance, but he was 2-3 with a double and a RBI.
