The starting rotation is nearly as bad as the bullpen.  If the game ended after six or seven innings, the Astros would have a much better record.

Not as bad as the umpire a few years back during an MLB game - the pitcher asked for a new ball and the umpire threw it over his head, the pitcher throws the ball in the dugout and the umpire throws another one into the dirt in front of the pticher.
Three was the charm, the umpire just handed it to the catcher.

During my college day I came out of the bullpen during a game, I can't remember why but I had taken off my glove for some reason and getting to the mound the umpire threw a ball at me, but I was looking at the scoreboard to make sure of what was going on,anyhow it nailed my pinky and jammed it all the way back almost facing my elbow.

/my finger is still deformed from it, the doctor just yanked it back down with the rest of the fingers and said it wont be straight again, lucky me it wasn't my pitching hand although it didn't matter much after that.

It's odd to see them wearing the uniforms from the era of the Queen's visit to Chavez Ravine....
