Lane Lewis, candidate for Chair of the Harris County Democratic Party, this morning released the names of key elected officials and party officials that have endorsed his bid for Chair.  Here they are: Mayor Annise Parker, Senator John Whitmire, TDP Vice-Chair Lenora Sorola-Pohlman, Harris County Attorney Vince Ryan, Representative Alma Allen, Representative Jessica Farrar, Representative Borris Miles, Representative Sylvester Turner, Houston City Council Member James Rodriguez, HISD Board Member Paula Harris, and HISD Board Member Juliet Stipeche.

Commentary got a preview of the 50th Anniversary ‘Stros logo yesterday.  It has the shooting star, the brick red star, and the rainbow colors – very cool.

Tommy Lasorda of course wore the Dodger Blue Numero 2.  Lasorda is celebrating his 84th BD today.

The last homie of the season starts tonight with four against the Rockies and three against San Luis and then it’s all over as we now sit on 102 losses – yikes!
