The final pieces in the rebuild hit the waiver wire

Jon Heyman says the Astros have placed Brett Myers and Wandy Rodriguez on waivers today. Oh, this isn't a shock, in case you were wondering.

Heyman, though, undoubtedly pulled on his testicles with glee at the prospect of having another two chances to rip the organization in 140 characters or less.

MLBTR astutely noted:
By placing the starters on waivers now, the Astros are giving teams an extra two days - the weekend - to contemplate making a claim.
