I can't think of a more fitting form of ultimate karma than Carlos Zambrano no-hitting the Houston Astros last night.
Maybe if Drayton McLane had not been such a jerk the Astros would not have been exhausted. And maybe if Drayton would not have tried to force the Cubs to fly into Hurricane Ike, then maybe the Cubs would not have been so hell bent on making the Astros look like fools.
The Astros play the Cubs in Milwaukee again this afternoon. The final game of the series will be made up at the end of the season only if needed. -- John Royal
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
