Astros: Showing a Pulse? 

Houston color announcer Jim Deshaies, yesterday:

"You know those machines that monitor your heart? There's a flat line and then suddenly you hear a beep, beep, beep. That's the Astros. They were flat-lining, now they have a sign of life, a little beep"
5.5 games back with 42 to play? Hmmmm...

Remember the 2000 election? I was sitting on my couch, shaking my head at the thought of President Gore, when the Fox crew, from seemingly out of nowhere, took Florida out of the blue column (the other networs soon followed) and announced it was back in play. Bush had life again, and 37 days later he was the President-Elect.

That's the Astros right now. Mayve Jimmy D's analogy was better, but either way, Houston once again has a chance to make a playoff run. It's going to take winning at least two of three from Chicago this weekend. Can they do it? Can we get Katherine Harris to count our runs?
