H-Town CM Jones won’t get the once over from the Harris County DA but that won’t stop the BS around the issue.  Here is what the H-Town Mayor said yesterday:

Council Member Jones has already taken steps to change policies and procedures in her office to prevent further violations.

I don’t think CM Jones appreciated the Mayor’s take because she doesn’t think she did anything wrong.  Oh well!   Get your arse reelected and that’ll be the end of stuff.

“Daddy’s little girl!”  Oh well, there is still slime in the ice machine!  I hate to say this but there will be a next victim.   Check out the Chron’s Nick Anderson cartoon with Baggy.  Ouch!

How many MLB teams lost 100 plus games last season?

Hunker Down will get to show his stripes so to speak when he names Evergoner’s replacement in the next week or so.  Let’s hope he doesn’t go too far right with his appointee.  I would hope he doesn’t appoint a paperless folk hater.

Here is from the ‘Stros website:

The Houston Astros are teaming up with Lucasfilm Ltd. to host Star Wars Night at Minute Maid Park, September 26 when the Astros play the St. Louis Cardinals at 7:05 p.m. Star Wars costumed characters will be on hand for the night and one lucky fan will win a copy of Star Wars: The Complete Saga on Blu-ray. Other prizes include Star Wars PEZ® candy dispensers and LEGOS® Star Wars® Character Encyclopedia from DK Publishing.

I hope the force is with us because we are now sitting on 101 losses.  In other news, the entire coaching staff has been invited back for next season – yikes!

The Mariners of course lost 101 games last season and the Pirates of course lost 105 games last season.

Our last road game is in Cinncy this afternoon then the Rockies come in for four tomorrow.  I wonder if Baggy will be in the TV booth this Saturday night?
