The Houston Astros are opening the 2012 season at 6:05 tomorrow night at Minute Maid Park and hoping to make the train conductor work!

 

 

The Astros will start with a four game weekend series against the Rockies with the Braves coming in the first of next week. A trip to the ball park would be a great way to enjoy the Easter weekend. The Astros will send Wandy Rodriguez to the hill. Last year he went 11-11 with a 3.49 ERA. 166 strike outs in 30 starts. That's not terrible numbers; but hardly starting day ace numbers. This will be an interesting year for the Astros. Right now the Astros are tied for first place! It would be nice if they are still there after a long hot summer; but you have to look at this as a rebuilding team. See you at the Minute Maid Park.
