Reactions to G39 - Brewers at Astros

Wandy dominates again, though he allowed his first homer of the season to Mike Cameron. Arias and Sampson combined in the 9th to make it interesting, but the Astros walked away with the win.

Wandy, on Cooper's messing up the lineup card:
"That’s the first time I see that. It’s the first time. I had never seen that, ever. I was surprised. I asked Carlos Lee, ‘what happened?’ He said the lineup was wrong. I had never seen that. I was really surprised."

Coop, on posting the lineup late:
"That might have created some of a problem, too. I was waiting to talk to a couple of guys. That might have created a problem. But, again, it’s my responsibility. We have three or four safeguards, two or three coaches and myself. And today no one checked it. So we’re all at fault, but I take the blame ultimately because it’s my responsibility. That should be the end of it."

"Tremendous, tremendous. That’s what we need for every day, to have somebody different step up. That’s what we need with the starters doing what they're doing."

Just a suggestion here.....feel free to tell me where to put it.....but on these Game Reactions you should include a link to the official box score of the game (from the Astros site or wherever).

I don't actually visit hardly at all now, I just come here a few times a day, so it would be nice to have a direct easy way to check the box score.

Nope, that's an excellent suggestion, and will be put into effect after G40.
