Don't worry, the offense will screw up this PR move

No, not Jeff Bagwell's hiring, the quest to make Roy the franchise wins leader before the trade deadline. The Astros have tweaked the rotation to ensure that Roy has two starts at home - both before July 31. He's two wins away from the franchise lead.

"We wanted to be able to split (Myers and Oswalt) up, and we decided to go ahead with Myers first and have Oswalt throw third. Because we wanted Bud to throw in between those two, anyway. And then, that would give Roy two more starts here at home."
