Hampton not only continues to impress me, I think I may have a little bit of a man crush. Honestly, who was the last pitcher outside of Roy Oswalt to impress you so much you scoured the depths of the Internet to find something, anything to post about him? yeah, me neither, I was just kidding, DUH. Hampton is the light at the end of the tunnel for the 'Stros this year. IF he plays well, so do the 'Stros. He has thrown 12 K's in 16 IP, 3.38 ERA and 16 hits over that span. Pretty impressive from the washed up over-paid former Astro, eh?
Up next: (From "Da footer")
The Astros will travel to Port St. Lucie, Fla., on Thursday to play the Mets at 12:10 p.m. Wandy Rodriguez will make his second appearance since returning from a strained left side muscle. Hunter Pence is not expected to make the trip, as he is still recovering from a mild strain of his left calf after making an "awkward" slide into home plate on Tuesday in Lakeland, Fla.
