at least it didn't last very long

Okay, first of all, call me the newest biggest Troy Glaus (pronounced «gloss») fan. Yeah, I never thought I'd say it, but good riddance to bad rubbish, and sign me up for an "I heart Glaus" tshirt. 

Second, I guess you can't win 'em all, right? It's alright, mostly because Rodriguez pitched like some kind of machine. Wellemeyer was good, but not as good as Wanda or Wendy or whatever the hell his name is. 

And sure, it's easy to criticize Tony after the fact for not putting Izzy out there for the 9th inning (even though it wasn't a save situation), but at the time it seemed like McClellan was as good a shot as anyone. So I'm not going to pout or hang my head, I'm going to applaud the Astros for winning (it was their home-opener after all), congratulate the Cardinals on a well-played game, collect my things, and move on.
