It's Lima Time
I know that all Astros fans are really worried about this rotation because a semi-decent pitching rotation can make an awful team look halfway decent, and the Astros rotation is nowhere near semi-decent. But don't worry because I've got some news that'll make you feel better.
Jose Lima has signed to pitch with the Long Beach Armada, one of the numerous teams in one of those numerous independent leagues that aren't affiliated with MLB. This can only mean that Jose Lima is preparing for his return to the big leagues, and this can only mean good news for the Astros since Mike Hampton and Russ Ortiz are due for a season-ending injury any day now. And should this happen, it would be really good news for the fans in the Crawford Boxes as they would get a ton of souvenir baseballs whenever Lima pitches.
And who knows, should the need arise, the Astros can also use Lima as a back-up anthem singer.
