|2008 - Mike Hampton||3-3||12||12||0||0||0||0||72.0||79||42||39||9||28||33||4.88||1.49|
|2008 - Wandy Rodriguez||8-7||24||24||0||0||0||0||130.1||132||64||54||14||44||125||3.73||1.35|
Wandy has had a pretty good season so far and has shown this season that he deserves to be in the rotation(if he can just stay healthy). A win today and Wandy will have his first ever winning season in the bigs.
A win today for the Astros and they will finish with 86 wins and 11 games over .500. Pretty good season for the most parts and a great improvement over last years 73-89 record. This season will also finish with the Astros having the most wins in a season since they went to the World Series in 2005.
So I just got finished watching "The Rookie" and I'm ready for baseball!!! Game on!
