Friday afternoon updates from H-town
From cool and fall-like to steamy and, well, Houston-like. Here’s what’s going on at Minute Maid Park and elsewhere.
* Eckstein is in the lineup.
* No detailed results on Chris Duncan yet, but he’s feeling better and Dunc the Elder hopes he could be released tomorrow. No DL move made; they’re thinking there’s an outside chance he could be available on Tuesday.
* I’ve noticed this before, but Brian Esposito is a helluva BP hitter. He really puts on a show.
* Anthony Reyes starts for Memphis tonight. (updated link, to the live boxscore of the game)
* Florida State begins its march to the national title tonight at Howser Stadium in Tallahassee. Viva Pingball!
* Another of the great competitive events in America gets under way today as well.
* Mrs. Dude is dead on about Albert Hammond Jr.’s album. Liking it more with every listen. The new Dinosaur Jr. is really fantastic too. Highly recommended, as an old fan of theirs.
