Who knows what to expect from Brian Moehler? I feel like he is owed, and this is even retroactive on my part, a little slack and credit because he was basically pitching hurt. Apparently the tide turned in the massacre at Corpus when catcher Koby Clemens went out to the mound and asked Moehler what he wanted to do. Moehler said "Let's throw changeups." And that was it.
So we're not going to list any stats for Moehler, because he's really starting anew tomorrow. Of course, if he nuts it, then that's different.
Lannan is 0-3 on the year with a 4.61 ERA, but not taking into account his first start of the season - OD09 @ Florida, he's 0-2 with a 2.96 ERA and 26H/8ER, 17K/7BB. He has not been getting many swinging strikes - no more than eight in a game, and three in his last start @ Philadelphia.
Last three starts:
|4/17 vs FLA||6.1||3/1||8:1||6/7||99/65|
|4/22 vs ATL||7||5/0||4:2||13/9||95/60|
|4/28 @ PHI||5||9/3||2:1||14/8||83/53|

Lannan only appeared once against the Astros in 2008: a May 8 win at Minute Maid Park, getting the win in an 8-3 victory. I knew this, because this was one of the games I attended last year.
