Not quite the match up that we had from last night... but still an important match up at least on an Ed Wade/Astros standpoint. Actually, the game probably means more to the Mets since they would be in 1st place in their division if not for 2 straight losses to the Astros.
As you can see from the stats above(these are only since with Houston), Wolf wasn't exactly dominant in his first appearance as an Astro... maybe he was nervous pitching in a closed-roof stadium... or maybe it's just that he's not a good pitcher away from PetCo Park. I guess we'll see today aye? Not that Wofl having a bad outing today will really prove that he's not a good pitcher... but it will give a little more insight as to what he can do when pitching at hitter friendly Minute Maid Park.
If Wolf continues to struggle at MMP (or away from PetCo for that matter) for the rest of the season, then it will put yet another mark on Ed Wade's record as Astros GM.
I hope he does well... I really do... I would love for Wade to start making good moves and turn out to be a great GM and the savior for the Astros organization... We'll see...
Rough series for Aaron Heilman as he took losses in both of the games in the series so far... Let's go for the trifecta!
