Myers is saving everybody's job!

We've already talked about how effective Myers is with Quintero behind the plate. Now, Myers is all about Arnsberg:

"I had heard good things about Arnie. We have a mutual friend that made it a lot easier for me to come over. He said, 'Listen to this guy and I've trusted in this guy for my whole career basically,' and I came in with an open mind. I was ready for whatever he had to tell me and it just kind of went from there...

...It hasn't really been any mechanical issues. More than anything, it's been executing pitches and giving me a good plan to go out there and execute and know what I can and can't do. It's been easier because he works harder than any pitching coach I've been around my entire career. I know when he does the work that he does, it's pretty much the gospel. Just go do it, go execute it."

McTaggart also has a further note on Bourn's steals, and where that puts him in relation to the Astros' top franchise base-stealers:

Bourn stole his 50th base of the season in the first inning of Monday's series opener against the Brewers, making him just the second Astros player to steal at least 50 bases in consecutive seasons. Bourn, who stole 61 bases in 2009, joins Cesar Cedeno, who swiped at least 50 in six consecutive seasons (1972-77).
