Houston loves the Phillies

If only because the Astros have owned the Phils the last few seasons.

Baseball is a funny sport, especially when it comes to one team's dominance over another. Take the Astros and Phillies.

In 2004-05, the Astros won 12 straight games against Philadelphia. TWELVE STRAIGHT. In 2005, had Philly won one of its six games against Houston there would have been a one-game playoff for the wild-card spot. Remember, that's the season Philadelphia concluded on some ridiculously hot winning streak. Instead, Houston took the wild card and rode it to the first World Series appearance in franchise history.

Why do I bring this up? Simply because horrid Houston defeated Philly, a legit playoff contender 7-5 on Monday. Is it another sign of Astros dominance or just a flash in the pan to start the season series? We'll soon see.
