The Battle For The Boot Is Back

I know I wrote last week about how this wasn't really a rivalry. But, I'm sick and tired of getting beat down by these Rangers.

What do the Astros need to do to win back that Silver Boot?

↵

1) They need to sweep all three games this weekend.

↵

2) They need to outscore the Rangers by 12 runs

↵

3) They need to pray to whatever Higher Authority they beleve in.

See? That's not so hard. After all, they're only playing one of the hottest teams in baseball. In fact, since that series against the Astros, the Rangers haven't lost a game. Granted, they were just playing the Pirates, but they had to win two come-from-behind games to keep the streak alive.

One last meaningless fact: This Silver Boot trophy...does anyone remember when the trophy broke? It was back before 2003 and someone in the front office (I'm looking at you, Drayton) knocked the trophy down and broke it. So, the teams had to get a new one made up. I wonder if they do the same thing with the Stanley Cup...
