Are we one game off again? Open Thread - Cardinals at Astros

No table—I'd like to get this off before gametime, and I'm running a little late. Kyle Lohse is the subject of this take by chuck and this vaguely more optimistic one by VEP. Words of optimism: He "may provide enough value not to make his contract an albatross."

Wandy Rodriguez finally took a loss against the Cardinals, which makes him just a regular really good pitcher instead of a really good pitcher who makes me want to renounce my baseball fandom. He's playing for a new manager, Dave Clark, who will look to provide yet another weirdly brilliant capper to a mediocre Astros team's second half. I wish him good luck, but not yet.
