A Measuring Stick

We said the trip to Houston would be a measuring stick for our club, and I guess it was. A team fighting for the playoffs totally dominated us on their field. We were badly outpitched...we hit next to nothing, and they lit us up pretty good. That's a good Houston team, I like them, and they are changing my view of Garner as a manager.

On to Atlanta. We still have a ways to go. The 40-man callups are coming. I'm excited about seeing these guys play, especially to see if Josh Hancock can bring anything. Its pretty clear we don't have any use for Ramon Ortiz in the rotation next season, so we need another starter from somewhere. It would be great to find out if it was a young guy in our own system.
