Astros VS Phillies
Woody Williams VS Jamie Moyer
Woody Williams Jamie Moyer
3 - 10, 5.58 7 - 5, 4.15

Your 35-47 Houston Astros are taking on the 42-40 Philadelphia Phillies. The Astros are coming off a dominating win in which they scored 12 runs and produced 5 multiple run innings. The Phillies are coming off a win of their own after beating the Mets 5-3 yesterday in Philly. The Astros are sending struggling veteran Woody Williams to the hill against the Phillies veteran in Jamie Moyer. It's the battle of the old guys with 44 year old Moyer against 40 year old Williams. Hope we have enough ben-gay.

In other news, Craig Biggio, Mr. 3000 was named the NL player of the week last week. See the full story here. Also, don't forget to vote Roy-O into the All-Star game!

If we're going by whichever team has the more All-Stars, then the Phillies are definitely the better team. The Phillies have 3 All-Stars this year in Chase Utley, Aaron Rowand, and Cole Hamels(yes... no Howard). The Astros sole representative is Carlos Lee(until of course "when" Roy gets voted in). I have some bad news Astros fans... The Pirates are ahead of us in the standings... Hopefully that changes after tonight.
