Seen during the 8th inning of the Brewers’ 8-1 loss to visiting Atlanta earlier today.

Captain Red Ass and Chad Cordero are doing commentary for MASN during this afternoon’s Nats/Padres game. Much weirder than hearing Boogie Shoes praise the aggressive base-running of Lastings Milledge is the revelation that Lo Duca and Cordero currently resemble identical twins.

While the Daily News’ Adam Rubin wonders if Willie Randolph will dare allow slumpng Carlos Delgado to face the Dodgers’ highly touted lefty Clayton Kershaw this weekend (hint : not unless Carlos D. learns to hit from the right side), the Houston Chronicle’s Jose De Jesus Ortiz reports that recently waived Mets reliever Jorge Sosa has signed a minor league contract with the Astros, and will report to Triple-A Round Rock.

Sosa will become the 4th ex-Met to wear an Express uniform this season, joining a glittering cast that’s included Alberto Castillo, David Newhan and Victor Diaz. Watching Round Rock this year has been kinda like going to a Long Island Ducks game, except it’s 25 degrees hotter and there’s fewer guys named Buttafucco in the stands.
