Things seem right with the world.

I just got back from a fabulous vacation. Made it back on Saturday, in fact, and trekked to Houston on Sunday to watch the Astros beat the Brewers, 8-3. My favorite player, Ensberg, got the day off, which was well-deserved and gave my binoculars a rest as well. Andy Pettitte was outstanding (7, 4, 2, 2, 2, 6). His ERA over his last 10 starts rivals Rocket's at 1.83. Please do vote for him for Comeback Player of the Year--I already did.

Chris Burke was awesome Sunday in his first start at the three-slot in the lineup. Russ Springer had suggested Burke try growing a beard to help his hitting. While I prefer his clean-cut look, looks like the facial hair will be here for a while if Sunday is any indication. He got a nice RBI double in last night's 6-2 win over the Padres out in San Diego, too. It seems as if the breaks might be starting to go the Astros' way again (check out "dramatic defense" under August 22). And tonight, Clemens is on the mound.

Things just seem right, somehow.
