Enough Houston already, it's Philly time!
Harry belongs to us.
Tampa Bay has a strong Houston connection as well with Gerry Hunsicker, Jim Hickey, Trever Miller, Dan Wheeler and broadcaster Dwayne Staats coming over from the Astros while Carl Crawford and Scott Kazmir were drafted out of Houston area high schools.
Philly only gets credit for Brad Lidge, Eric Bruntlett and Harry Kalas coming from Houston.
The Dodgers only have Jeff Kent and James Loney who was drafted out of a Houston area High School.
The Red Sox only have Houston schoolboy Josh Beckett on their active roster, although they did have Julio Lugo and Curt Schilling on the 60 day disabled list (Probably why they are getting whacked).
The ex-Houston factor gives the Rays the advantage all the way. You heard it here first.
