    I'll start this off? It looks like we got a new Pitcher. According to Yahoo, Astros starter Woody Woodward pitched pretty effectively yesterday.

    Woodward was a solid addition.

    His work in the Watergate thing was notable, too.

    I knew he was getting up there in age but damn if he isn't in his 70's. That's pretty impressive.

    LOL, if he was on the yanks, the article would have said "potential cy-young candidate, Woody Williams".

    Nice. Also, the Indians mlb.com reporter said Astros SS Carl Everett had an RBI single yesterday.

    But I haven't seen him in Kissimmee this spring, so I don't think he exists.

    OK so it's early, these games are largely meaningless & all that...but it's kinda nice that the 3 most disappointing Stros last year - Lidge, Lane & Ensberg - have all shown *something* in the first 3 games.

    I was really hoping to get Bernstein to be a backup catcher. :)

    Maybe Wolf Blitzer can backup AE at short.

    The Anti-Ausmus:

    Yesterday, Injun catchers Martinez & Rose combined to go 5-5, with 5 runs & 5 RBI. Today, Pudge is 3-3 with at least 1 of each.

    Lidge gave up 4 runs on 3 hits in an inning, including a homer. At least it's early.

    So maybe I spoke too soon earlier. :) Or maybe not.

    Will be interesting to hear if he was working on a particular pitch today, he may have been throwing nothing but fastballs, or he may have been fiddling with his new 2-seamer/cutter/sinker for all I know Results, grain of salt & whatnot.
