Oh yeah, Coop does have a contract next year

...Because of the short-sighted decision to exercise his option 15 minutes after the season began. Anyhow, Coop reminded everybody of that when asked about how he feels about the complete re-evaluation of the organization:

“I know I have a contract through 2010, and my plan is to fulfill that and let the management decide what they want to do. That's basically their decision. I think ownership has said that he was going to look at everything and evaluate it when it's over. I take Drayton at his word; that's what he's going to do.”

Johnson's letting the Jimmy Legs get him a little bit in his first big-league action this month. Johnson:
"I feel all right; I've just got to relax. That's one of the biggest things for me is just learning how to relax when I'm up there.”

Coop?
“I think he's kind of feeling his way a little bit. It looks like he might be a little jittery and not quite sure, maybe, of the zone. That will happen with a young hitter. He's going to be thinking about (his) hands, (his) feet and ‘ooh, this guy's on the mound' — that kind of stuff. He's got to just relax and go play the game and let the talent take him.”

The Astros aren't happy that Towles hasn't had another 7-RBI game, or that he isn't hitting .990 this time around. Coop:
“We saw some good things out of J.R. a couple years ago when he was here in September, and we have yet to see that since then.I just think he needs to play a little more consistently, so he can show some of that and maybe get his feet on the ground.”
