ASTROS PROBABLE: REDS PROBABLE:
Roger Clemens (6-5, 2.52) Bronson Arroyo (14-9, 3.17)
Figured I'd get this up now so that you guys would have a place to congregate in the morning/early afternoon before the game.
I'm betting the Astros are regretting the whole giving Roger Clemens a truckload of money for a half a season thing at this point. Didn't really work out for them.
Does anyone else get the feeling Clemens could probably pitch into his 50's? A team could have him and an elderly Randy Johnson only showing up on days that they pitch, staying home with the family during road trips. Maybe sign a 60 year old Julio Franco to play some backup first. Then hook up a sweet senior citizen discount and make a killing at the gate.
Anyway, the Reds are a game and a half up on the Astros. A win today would make it two and a half with just 11 to go.
