    Guess it's unfair that the first thought that came to mind was Woody getting lit up in Game 1 of the 2004 World Series.

    He had a good career. Great hitter for a pitcher.

      He did have a great career...the stros should not blame woody,but themselves for shelling out a 2 year 13 mill deal to guy over 40 not named Clemens

            I remember he was annoyed the Cards didn't want to sign him when his contract expired. Like he hadn't read his own stats line.

              So you are disagreeing with him ... and then restating what he said?

                no..i was agreeing...being sarcastic actually...what i was saying was he was giving houston too much credit by saying ROUGH year...I THINK THEY MAY BE IN FOR A TERRIBLE YEAR.

                I was attempting to state that "rough" was to kind a word to.....screw it,gimme a beer!

                            I'll always remember game 5 of the 2004 NLCS. The best game I ever saw in person where Woody and Backe went toe to toe.

                            Not a huge surprise. He was terrible last season and looked even worse in the spring. What is really sad is this is the worst starting rotation for Houston in a long time and Woody couldn't even crack the top 5.

                            Oswalt, Backe, Wandy Rodriguez, Shawn Chacon and Chris Sampson. Terrible.
