2013-09-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Current Astros #5 catcher Cody Clark is 0-24 to start his ML career, the Astros had 17 hits and he didn't get one of them! Don't you feel bad for the kid?
(Rick from Houston)
I do, but hey, career minor leaguer who's getting a chance to live the big-league life of chartered jets and five-star hotels. I'd rather be 0-for-24 in the big leagues than on a bus between Corpus Christi and Tulsa! (Jason Cole)
