Not to take anything away from Zambrano and Lilly's performances, it is painfully obvious that the Astros have their heads (and hearts) somewhere else rather than in the game in front of them.
At a time when they were just heating up, their city is ravaged by Hurricane Ike and the team is forced to take what is in essence a long road trip (this series against the Cubs in Milwaukee and then its on to Miami)
Would Big Z have turned in a No No if the game where to have been played in Arlington or St. Louis?
I know what you all are going to say. "I shouldn't feel bad for them." You have to play your best no matter if its home or away." And really, the more I think about it, no matter where the Cubs/Astros series would have been played, Cubbie faithful would have turned out in support of their team. There are Cubs fans everywhere!
What do you guys think? Does Cecil Cooper have a legitimate bone to pick or is he just whining and making excuses for the Stros lethargic play?
