Houston Press finds something else to be pissed about

The Houston Press finds another reason to get all worked up about how terrible the Astros are. Regard:

Does anybody on the Astros bench pay attention to anything? Last night, in the top of the fifth inning, Washington's Adam Dunn fouled a pitch off of the head of Pudge Rodriguez. Pudge is clearly dazed, but continues on trying to catch. One would think the coaches or trainers would catch this detail, but they don't, and finally Dunn stepped out of the batter's box and motioned to the Astros dugout and suggested someone come out to take a look...

...It's for reasons like this that I just don't think the Astros are a good team, or are worthy of making the playoffs...

...Cecil Cooper never seems to be aware of the injury status of his pitching staff. Third-base coach Dave Clark often seems to at a different game. Carlos Lee sees no need to chase after balls hit down the left field line. The guys are sloppy when running the bases and are often caught in rundowns that should have never existed...

...So maybe it's just me. Maybe I'm just as clueless as Cooper and Clark and the rest of the team often appear to be.
