Name the ‘Stro player with the most fielding errors this season – this is an easy one?

The Karla Cisneros for City Council, District H Kickoff at Alamo Tamale was a great success.

The Sam Houston High School Mariachi band performed and entertained.

Noted residents and voters of District H attended.

CEWDEM was there.

Former H-Town City Council Member Melissa Noriega was there to show support. Jim Henley was there.

Former San Antonio City Council Member Mary Alice Cisneros was there in support.

Former HUD Secretary and San Antonio Mayor Henry Cisneros introduced Karla.

Karla’s kickoff speech was on the mark.

Oh yeah, the tamales were great. Drop by there and you will be welcomed and greeted by a big Karla Cisneros sign.

The campaign is on!

Check out the Kuffer mention of District H here: http://offthekuff.com/wp/?p=67125.

And now that the session is over, the focus is on the upcoming H-Town City, ISD, and HCC elections.

It looks like grand jury reform may happen. Pulitzer Prizes do matter. I wonder if Pulitzer Prize winning columnist Lisa Falkenberg will go up to Austin and watch the bill signing. She at least ought to get one of the pens used to sign the bill.

Who would have thought that on June 1, 2015, the ‘Stros would have a four game lead in the AL West.

Jonathan Villar of course leads the team with nine, I said nine, fielding miscues. And I am not even going to mention his bonehead base running gaffes.

Shortstop is the most important position. We need help there. Where is Carlos Correa?

B’More is here for four.

I sure hope Mayor Cisneros is right on this. Talk about Latino voter turnout in 2016. Here is a bit from yesterday’s SA Express News:

Henry Cisneros told a Spanish-language television network that Julian Castro is Hillary Clinton’s first and only option to run as her vice presidential running mate.

Cisneros told Univision’s Félix De Bedout that people within the Clinton campaign have told him that Castro, the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development and former San Antonio mayor, is “the first person on their list.”

All I have to say about how much money the Clintons received for giving speeches, nobody put a gun to the heads of those that paid to hear them talk.

Commentary makes it a policy not to talk about folks and some of the personal stuff that should be kept private. Yesterday, the Chron told us way too much about a couple of local elected officials – wowsers!

Nice job, Waco!

The 25-13 ‘Stros have the second best record in MLB but this morning Bleacherreport.com has them at number 5 on their MLB Power Rankings. Name the four teams ahead of the ‘Stros?

In local Mayoral politics, the campaign kickoffs are over so now it is about winning over voters.

The new light rail lines will open this Saturday. This past weekend I ran across them making some test runs. I hope the folks that regularly drive Downtown show a little patience. Be careful out there.

All I can say is when there are only four team left in the NBA Playoffs, the Rockets games start at a normal 8 pm.

Detroit, San Luis, Dodgers, and KC all rank ahead of the ‘Stros of course in this morning’s Bleacherreport.com MLB Power Rankings.

Check these tweets from yesterday:

It’s May 17 and officially not early anymore. Astros aren’t going away.

“Not going away” doesn’t mean “win the division.” “Not going away” means the Astros will be, and are, contenders this year.

The crowds are getting bigger. This evening Lance McCullers, Jr. will make his MLB debut with the ‘Stros. We have a 5 ½ game lead. What else can you ask for?
