It’s funny how the first two favorite moments of the Houston Astros 2011 season came to me so quickly, but then I had to really start thinking about the next few. This one came to me this morning while I was wondering why there wasn’t more interest in Wandy Rodriguez in the current starting pitcher market.
On August 29th against the Pittsburgh Pirates, Wandy had a great night striking out 13 batters to help the Astros win 7-4 (win #45 if you’re wondering). For those of you who are in need of a starting pitcher, remember that on a really bad team without much in the way of run support, Mr. Rodriguez went 11 -11 with a 3.49 ERA, 7.82 K/9 and 1.31 WHIP. The boy’s got game.
