Die Hard The Hunter revisited

I said back in March that Hunter Pence needed to start the season at AAA to show he could continue his spring training tear…he certainly did that.  I am truly excited that I will be at Minute Maid Park for his debut tonight.  I also said in "Shades of 2005" that the Astros pitching would be better than expected just like 2005 and that the pundits would say they were dead and buried because the offense was struggling…so far that seems to hold true…the Astros are tied for last place in the NL Central with the Cubs as they go into game 2 of the current homestand with the division leading Brewers…remember though, that last year at this time, the Brewers were leading the NL Central also and they faded quite nicely down the stretch…I predict the same thing this year for the Brew Crew and the Buccos and the Reds….make no mistake, the Cards will make a push for the division title at some point in the season…let’s all hope that bringing up Pence now vs waiting until the All Star Break to bring up Scott last year is the difference between the Stros taking the Division title this year vs missing the playoffs last year.
