Do the Astros realize they are 1 up with 1 to go, and guaranteed at worst a 1 game playoff? Why on Earth would they pitch Clemens on 3 days rest when historically Clemens gets rocked on 3 days? Tied going into the last day, maybe you do it. Down 1, you have nothing to lose. But they are 1 UP. If they win without Clemens or the Giants lose today, the Astros would have Clemens lined up for Game 1 against the Braves. Should they lose and the Giants win, they would have Clemens lined up to face the Giants on full rest. Unless Roger doesn't want to travel to San Francisco because Monday is his day to car pool the kids, this ranks up there in the pantheon of baseball stupidity.


Edit: Either someone came to their senses or Houston has dumb luck, but Clemens has been scratched due to being 'sick'.

Annnnnnnnnnnnd Clemens got sick, soooo Brendan Backe takes over, and remember... it's the friggin' Rockies!

Right now it's still a shutout for Houston. I hate you now Houston. Because of you, well and Hermanson..., anyway, because of you the Giants are not playoff bound.




I've got many character flaws, humility isn't one.

I doubt this protest stands. This wouldn't be a balk with no one on base. The only theory I can come up with is that it would be a quick pitch. The side-armer for Oakland Bradford gets called for it sometimes.
