Half Empty and Half Full

The Astros had some luck over the weekend. The ‘Stros split the series with the Phillies. Winning on Friday night. Losing on Saturday. The Sunday game was rained out.

But that’s the good news. Brad Lidge pitched a sixth inning in the Friday game. And he still didn’t look good. Woody Williams didn’t look good on Saturday. And Jason Jennings was put on the disabled list with elbow problems. That means the Wandy Rodriguez has been promoted to the third guy in the rotation.

Carlos Lee has started to hit. But Lance Berkman hasn’t.

The team is now 4-6 for the season. – John Royal
