The following is the unofficial line-up of candidates from the City of H-Town website for Mayor, City Council, and Controller.

With The Mayor having eight opponents, how do they avoid the big R – yes I’m saying it – runoff and campaigning during Thanksgiving?  Will they ‘splain to Commentary a non-run-off strategy.

Former City of H-Town department director and former HISD big shot Issa Dadoush who left HISD in a huff filed at the last minute against CM C.O. Bradford.  Dadoush lists a Pasadena address – huh!

Two Latino candidates are running in At-Large Three.  They are going to split the Latino vote for sure.

In Commentary’s opinion, Hunker Down made a mistake in rejecting the Early to Rise initiative.  It looks personal.   The Early to Rise folks early on forgot to brief Hunker Down so he felt dissed and decided to be against and now is saying NO to 85,000 plus signatures.   It will come back to bite him in the arse while he campaigns for a tax increase to save the Dome.  It is a bad move if you ask me. 

I really don’t have much to say about Larry Marshall not running for reelection over at HISD other than to say he can read the writing on the wall.

The ‘Stros had 4 dingers last night to put them at 132 for the season and tied for 14th in MLB.  How many dingers did the ‘Stros have last season and where did we rank?

Forbes says the ‘Stros are going to show a profit of $99 mil  this year – yikes!

Check it out here.

The ‘Stros say no way and here is what they said yesterday:

We are very disappointed that, earlier today, Forbes released an article that includes significant inaccuracies relating to the Astros’ finances. The Astros do not disclose financial information. However, as MLB will confirm, the information reported in the Forbes article relating to the Astros’ revenues, the Astros media rights fee from CSN Houston, and CSN Houston’s per subscriber rate are all significantly inaccurate. As a result, the conclusion about the Astros operational profit is significantly inaccurate.

The Astros will continue to operate the team in a fiscally responsible manner that will make the City of Houston proud. We are very excited about our accomplishments and we remain steadfast in our commitment to this rebuilding process. We have established a basis of young talent on our MLB roster that will continue to improve. And our minor league system is now one of the best in MLB. As our young prospects develop, we will move them up to the Major League roster and increase our payroll to a level that will allow the Astros to compete for World Championships. The success of CSN Houston is a vital piece of that process and we continue to work toward establishing full distribution.

I don’t know who to believe.

Here is what Rice’s Mark Jones says about the Lite Guv’s reelection chances:

"He’s moving from the range of running the risk of not attaining re-election, to not even making it into a runoff.  If I had to predict right now, I would say he doesn’t make the runoff."

I’m saying he doesn’t even make the race.

Last season the ‘Stros ended up with 146 dingers and ranked 21st in MLB of course.

Last night’s game was a nail biter as Chris Carter racked up his 24th and 25th dingers of the season, two-time AL Player of the Week Jason Castro had his 18th of the season and Matty D had his 19th.  We won 10-8.
