Blum leaves game with strained hammy.

Geoff Blum will likely miss at least two games with a strained left hamstring after suffering the injury during Sunday’s finale with the Rangers.

Blum felt the discomfort after singling in his first at-bat in the second inning.

“When I went into second base, I kind of hesitated a little bit in my slide,” he said. “It felt more like a cramp when I did it but my third at-bat when I took that swing, I felt it. It bit pretty good. It hurts.”

Blum left after the sixth inning and was replaced at third base by rookie Edwin Maysonet. The veteran infielder’s status is currently day-to-day.

“We’ll wake up tomorrow and see how it goes and I’ll probably have a better evaluation of what’s going on,” Blum said. “[Athletic trainers] Nate [Lucero] and Rex [Jones] are going to do a good job in taking care of me and hopefully it is just a day-to-day thing and something I can deal with and work through.”

Blum said he hasn’t pulled a hamstring since 1996, while playing for the Expos’ Double-A affiliate in Harrisburg, PA.

The only way the Astros could catch a break right now is if it was in Miguel Tejada’s leg

That makes zero sense, jubs. Miggy’s bat is the hottest thing going for this team right now. Now, if say the Angels wanted **** who is showing “he still has it” for some pitching prospects, I’d be all over it. What can you do, though?

I’m just being sarcastic. What I mean is with our luck right now we would lose Miggy because he is the one doing all the hitting. Course, now Pudge is down, so I guess it can get worse all kinds of different ways.
