What does it say about things when I admit that I'm happy it's our number five guy facing the Reds' ace tonight, and not our number three?
Sampson admits he's not 100 percent healthy after the calf, but then again Woody Williams is not 100 percent young, either.
Harang is 6 - 5 lifetime against Houston with a 4.15 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP, but his emergence as a premier pitcher last year found special expression in his dominance of the Astros.
If you aren't aware, you might wanna sit down.
In 2006, Harang was 4 - 0 against Houston with a 2.76 ERA and a frighteningly low 0.92 WHIP.
In other, more pleasant, news, not only is Carlos Lee leading the NL in RBIs through 12 games, he looks pretty good when compared against the RBI greats in team history, as well.
I took a look at the players who put up the ten greatest seasons by RBI in team history, and only one of them had more RBI through twelve games than El Caballo does.
