At what point do you start to worry?

If you look at the multimedia galleries in the Chronicle's Astros page you'll read the following:

Astros shut out by Braves
Astros take on Yankees
Astros blown out by Mets
Astros lose to Pirates
Astros fall to Nationals
15 years of outfield change

Yeah. Last night was bad. Whooped 13-0. Out hit 11-2. Four errors.

Nieve: 2IP, 4H, 5ER, 2BB
Norris: 1.1IP, 4H, 5ER, 4BB
Wright: .2IP, 2H, 3R (0ER), 2BB
Fulchino: 2IP, 1H, 1BB
Graves: 1IP, 1K
Gervacio: 1IP, 1K

Abercrombie and Smith get the only two hits. Newhan, Smith, Abercrombie and Wright committed the errors. That's eight walks, compared to 3 strikeouts. And there's only so many times you can say "At least it's spring training" before you get that nervous pit in your stomach. Says Coop: Let's hope it's spring training and it all gets kicked out of here."
