Astros vs. Pirates, 7 July 2008

Runelvys Hernandez vs. Phil Dumatrait, 7:05.

As a Pirates fan, I'd like to extend a warm "thank you" to the Astros for starting Runelvys Hernandez in this game. Hernandez, you'll recall, posted an 8.47 ERA in four starts for the Indianapolis Indians last year. The Bucs are coming off a very tough series against the Brewers that dropped them to last place, and the indifference with which the Astros are treating this game--and the possibility that they themselves might wind up in last place if they lose--is simply heartwarming.
