So Close...

In its notes section accompanying the story of Phil Garner's public emasculation of Brad Lidge (a separate post will follow on that topic), the Chronicle reports Trever Miller's impending return means either Zeke Astacio (he of the 11.12 ERA) or The Worst Player in the History of Major League Baseball will be sent down to Round Rock:

It seems the Chronicle has joined the writers here by virtue of its observation that "Against Gallo, lefthanders are hitting .412 and righthanders are hitting .474 this year." Zeke is awful, but he's not even in the same zip code as The Rooster. This is a no-brainer. Do the right thing, T-Poo.

UPDATE--the Astros made the completely illogical decision to send Zeke Astacio (instead of The Rooster) down to Round Rock. To compound this injustice, Gallo somehow got the win last night after giving up a single to the pitcher and working 2/3 of an inning.

The only explanation for this repeated failure to recognize what any baseball fan can so plainly see must be that The Rooster has pictures of Drayton McLane in several compromising positions.

Can I start a Gallo fan club?

Membership dues will be $50 and that will buy you a autographed photo of Gallo's back as he turns around to watch another single drop in the gap, a t-shirt with a Hangman's Noose on the back with the label "Gallo - Western Justice," and a railroad spike in the head to remind you 24-hours a day of the burning sensation in your head that you feel every moment he trots out to the mound to blow another lead.

$25 of the dues will be donated to a fund to support children orphaned in post-Gallo appearance episodes of homicidal domestic violence.
