Commentary has been watching the back and forth on the takes folks have about Congressman Gene Green and his positions on the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 (ACESA) that is working its way through Congress.

The ‘Stros hold a 25 to 23 games won edge over the Rangers but the Rangers currently hold the Silver Boot even though we split last year 3 to 3 because they scored more total runs.
