Yesterday, I wrote that the little brouhaha that occurred when Roy Oswalt came to bat in the second inning, was instigated by Oswalt.

That's not right. A number of published reports, including this one, indicate that Michael Barrett was the culprit; he had words with Oswalt when he stepped into the batter's box.

There's no place for this, and Barrett will be lucky not to get suspended. This isn't something that a team in the heat of a playoff race ought to let itself do, and I trust that Dusty Baker had a nice long talk with Barrett afterwards.

Apologies to the Astros for this. Let's just play ball today.
