Stung

It doesn’t matter that I’m largely pleased by the trades Houston has made this week, even if they mean two of my favorite Astros – Roy Oswalt and Lance Berkman – will be finishing their careers elsewhere.  

It doesn’t matter that I think General Manager Ed Wade has this team headed very quickly in the right direction.
It doesn’t matter that I love that owner Drayton McLane seems to finally be ceding the fact that the Astros’ current roster isn’t a piece or two from being competitive, but needs to be blown up and made younger, with strong direction by Wade and scouting director Bobby Heck.
None of that matters tonight, because it still kind of hurts to see this:

Sometimes you just have to let yourself be a fan.

I agree, man… I’m glad that the trades happened, for the good of the team, but still… I tried watching Yankees and Phillies highlight reels from the weekend, and I just had to walk away.
