Did you see Alfonso Soriano's diving catch of Albert Pujols' liner to left?
And then almost getting the double play at first?
How about Kosuke Fukudome's amazing smashing-into-the-wall catch and robbing Felipe Lopez' almost outta here fly to right?
Or Derrek Lee taking Cesar Izturis' bunt and trying to get Brendan Ryan at 3rd?
The throw a hair late but only because Ryan was running out of control as he slid waaay past the base, and Aramis tags him out (notice they didn't replay that too many times - I think the ump threw Ryan out for being a boob and not necessarily because of the tag).
All of these plays ought to be on Sports Center today.
Plus, how much better do you feel after watching Harden take the mound?
What a game.
So maybe the baby winning streak is alive, but it'll have to wait for Hurricane Ike which has the possibility of being way more than a baseball scheduling annoyance.
It's HUGE, and you just hope that everybody down there will be okay after it's over.
I read "Isaac's Storm" by Eric Larsson way back when, and this looks like very similar circumstances.
Go here for the basic story of Galveston Texas basically disappearing afterwards.
Anyway, the Cubs didn't fly down to Houston, they say they may try to play Sunday/Moncay but that sounds impossible to me.
