    It happened a few days ago. The trifecta of my favorite teams.

    The Suns won their third in a row by showing balance today.

    The Mercury looked weary for three quarters, but hung in
    and took over in the 4th quarter for their third victory in
    a row, after losing the first two.

    Will the D-backs make it another TV sweep?

    With our ace getting tagged in the 1st, we'll see.

    I hope Varsho gets a better chance than Cron. As the
    second worst scoring team in MLB, Torey has nothing
    to lose. Let's see how he does his job this time.

    And to start the 2nd, another Astros homerun.

    As Bob Brenly just pointed out, the Astros have hit 2 HR's in two innings so far.

    The D-backs have hit 2 HR's in ten games. Why? Because all they try to do is
    hit HR's.

    A bases loaded sac fly and it's 3-0 Astros.

    Another game of playing from behind.

    Escobar drives in a run in the 4th. 1 out, runners on 1st & 3rd. 3-1 Astros.

    And the Freight Train grounds into an inning ending double play.

    As the Amish are quoted as saying, "The harder I work, the behinder I get."

    It is now Houston 8-1 with 1 out in the top of the 5th and runners on 2nd & 3rd.
    Crichton is pitching in relief of MadBum.

    Has MadBum really lost it that badly? "Guess so!

    It is baseball tradition to expect your pitching ace to be your stopper.

    Down 8-1 in the 5th, in this circumstance, is embarrassing!

    Torey Lovullo's passive personality (in additional to his goofy use of
    his players) has put this team to sleep.

    What is there to hope for? Only that it may expedite the departure
    of the Manager. Something needs to change. . .for things to change!

    Even if he were a scapegoat, which he is not.
