Reaction to G4: Astros v. Phillies

Carlos Lee:
"Today was probably the only game so far that we were out of it, pretty much. The first series against San Francisco (which the Giants swept), the pitchers did great and kept us in the game. ... As an offense, I really don’t know what’s going on."

“We’re in a situation where we have to be real, too; they’re two good ballclubs (Giants and Phillies), and we do have some inexperience. But at the same time, we want to have good, solid at-bats in certain situations, and you’d like to have your pitchers at least be able to do some things that you can point your finger at. We’re better right now, (but) things just haven’t fallen into place.”

Note: This is a good point. The Astros haven't laid down to Padres and Nationals. These are two teams expected to go to the playoffs.

We should rebuild though if we have that attitude. If we are striving for 81-81, we aren't winning a championship. If we arent winning a championship, then what are we doing with a 95 million dollar payroll?

To win and not just make Drayton money, we need a new owner who will get real. I'm sick of seeing us decline more and more making all of the these goofball reporters right about our team. Just throw the towel in. Its like Drayton can't decide if we wants to be the Yankees or Marlins. Please choose a side and quick.

(Note: I know I sound bitter and we are just 4 games in, but watching this team is already getting old.)

I, for one, am not expecting the Giants to go to the postseason, despite a hot start.

They are a .500 team which played over their heads last season, in my opinion. Though not a bad team, by any means, and we were facing their #1, #2, and #3 starters (including Lincecum).
