Commentary tries to make it a point to watch H-Town City Council meetings on the tube and The Mayor’s press availability afterwards.  This past Wednesday a reporter asked The Mayor about Paul Bettencourt being mentioned as a possible mayoral candidate, err opponent this November.  The Mayor’s instinctive response was a loud you-gotta-be-kidding-me laugh.  In other words, she didn’t take it seriously – classic. 

Soon to be former State Rep. Ellen Cohen says she might be interested in running for H-Town City Council in District C, maybe.  Of course, we’re going to have to go through city council district redistricting this year to see what the districts will look like.

Stay tuned!

Jim Thome (Twins last season, now free agent) of course is #9 all-time with 1,679 bases-on balls and Chipper Jones (Braves) of course is #25 all-time with 1,404 bases-on-balls.

It’s a good thing the ‘Stros signed some infielders a few weeks ago as Jeff Keppinger will undergo surgery and will be out a few months.
