Do you think the Astros might pick up Joe Savery off waivers? He's already 28 years old, but he was a first round pick 2007. He played at Rice and pitchers from Rice don't normally have much success in the majors.
However, he might be able to draw some additional fans to the games. When he played for Rice, he was very good. Not only was he a good pitcher, he could really mash it with the old bats. He is one of my favorite Rice players of all-time, right behind Berkman.
