After a couple of days drenched in the acid rain of politics, I am on to more important matters. Never mind my calls for a moratorium on capital punishment, tax cuts or wars. A law must be enacted to put a stop to Astros' pitchers in the All Star game. Immediately!
For the 2nd year in a row, the National leagues Home Field advantage in the World Series (and consequently, my beloved Cardinal's) has been handed to the American league by an Astro's pitcher.
Last year Clemens parties all week and allows 6 or 7 runs in inning 1. This year, after a wonderful inning by Carpenter and 1 run allowed by Smoltz, Roy Oswalt of the Astros lets the flood gates be opened and ruins any chance of a NL win.
Is it a plot by the Astros who know the Cardinals will win the pennant? Should there be a moratorium on Astros' pitchers in the All Star game? Can a congressional committee hold hearings on this subject?
Where is the outcry and the justice?
