A few quick thoughts

  1. Houston Astros - Despite a 2-5 start to the season, I feel good about the Astros chances this season in the NL Central. While the division is not the best in baseball, it may be the most balanced from top to bottom which gives every team a chance to stay in it. The starting pitching staff, which is supposed to be the weakness of the Astros, has been surprisingly good this season. I think the offense is going to wake up pretty soon and with some home games on the schedule, they can get this thing turned around soon.
  2. Houston Rockets – With just 5 games left in the regular season after tonight for the Houston Rockets, it looks like they could be heading to another No. 4 vs. No. 5 matchup with the Utah Jazz. While I don’t feel the Rockets matchup well with the Jazz, they have become one of the most heated rivals of the Rockets and a frequent playoff opponent. With the agony of last year’s game 7 home court loss to the Jazz still lingering, I would really love to see the Rockets get another chance against the Jazz in the playoffs.
  3. Miami – I get an opportunity to fly to Miami tomorrow for work. While, I’ll only be there for one night and will mostly be there for all work and no play, I will get a chance to go out tomorrow evening for dinner. I’m looking very forward to the short getaway.
