Creeping Inexorably Toward A Worthwhile Sub-Heading.

Pedro Feliz is My New Best Friend
I don't know why I didn't look at the Giants record in Minute Maid Park leading up to their series with Houston this week, but it's probably a good thing I didn't. If I had taken a peek I might have gotten too excited for my own good.
With last night's victory (did I mention that I'm very fond of Pedro Feliz right now?), the Giants stopped their losing streak in Houston. Their one game losing streak. The one game losing streak that came ahead of 11 straight victories in the Juicebox. San Francisco is now 12-1 in the Astrogoths homage to fruit-based liquid refreshment, and in these games, they have outscored Houston 94-52. For those of you without calculators, that's an average score of 7.2 to 4.
I'm not sure I have a point here, except to say that if the Cubs can handle their end of the bargain, good things could happen. Of course, I was watching Curse of the Bambino while following the webcast of the game, so my excitement and enthusiasm are tempered with the fear of abject, soul-crushing disappointment. Welcome to my life.
