If you didn't see that coming going into the ninth you obviously didn't pay attention last year.
The Astros knew this was coming and did nothing to stop it in Spring training. Lyons is horrendous and Ed Wade down the to the beer vendors knows this....or at least they should! There are other candidates to close on this team like Mark Melancon. I would love to at least see someone else get a shot.
I wish I could come up with one sensible reason for Lyons closing.
Just one of many in 2011......nice job putting a bullpen together BRAD!
