More Meat Wagon!

After two innings, Brandon Backe left with a strained ribcage muscle.

Those two innings, though, Backe gave up two hits and a walk, striking out one.

Depending on how serious the injury is, the Astros SP5 position just got a little clearer. Remember Wandy had a similar injury and hasn't pitched since Feb 27. Two weeks is a long time to be out if you're trying to earn a job...

I despise Backe. I sure hope someone steps up and takes his spot. Maybe Russ Ortiz?I'll have a blog up in a minute about it.
