Congratulations Biggio

Let me join the chorus of local bloggers celebrating Craig Biggio's 3,000th career hit tonight. He only needed three hits going into tonight's game to reach the milestone, but he decided to do even better: Bidge went 5-for-6, including a hit in the bottom of the 11th inning that helped set up Carlos Lee's spectacular game-winning grand-slam.

There's not much else for the Astros and their fans to be happy about right now - the team's .418 winning percentage is currently tied for third-worst in Major League Baseball - which makes tonight's game all the more enjoyable. This is a well-deserved accomplishment for one of the greatest people to ever wear an Astros uniform.
