8 minutes of heaven

If I throw a ball for eight minutes, can I start next week? Because that's what's gonna happen for Wandy.

Wandy threw for 8 minutes today, after throwing for 6 minutes yesterday and could start next week - provided a bullpen session goes well...

Honestly, when are the Astros going to just cut ties with Wandy and Backe. We held on to Wandy for so long everyone realizes he has no upside. Backe should just become a pro wrestler with Chacon and Backe could come out screaming "don't taze me, bro"

I think the Astros give up on Backe before they give up on Wandy. The Astros have shown plenty of loyalty to Backe - who hasn't shown much outside of the month of October. I think he's a genuinely nice guy, but when people in New York (from where I just moved) refer to Backe as "11-run guy" it's not good. And given that Wandy is the only lefty in the rotation, he's sticking.

I'd give the edge to Chacon in the ring with Backe. But get a few beers and a wedding dress? Your fight just became much more even...
