Astro History: What's Wrong with This Picture?

Surely the Astros wouldn't be so cheap as to try to get some extra spring-training life out of old shirts after they changed their name to the Astros, right?
The other very wrong thing? Dave Adlesh spent six seasons with the team as a catcher. His career stats? A single home run, a .168 batting average, a slugging percentage of .199 and twice as many career strikeouts as hits.
On second thought, sign him up: He can't be worse than what the Astros are currently offering behind the plate. Even at age 68.
(We would also accept "His eyebrows" as an answer, by the way.)
