Astros lineup Friday vs. Rays

It’s time for Interleague Play. The Astros open a three-game series tonight at Minute Maid Park — where the roof is closed, by the way — against the Tampa Bay Rays, the team with the best record in baseball. Brett Myers (2-3, 3.67 ERA), whose only previous appearances against the Rays came in the 2008 World Series with Philadelphia, pitches for the Astros against right-hander Matt Garza (5-1, 2.38 ERA).

By the way, the Astros are 100-100 in Interleague Play, including 6-9 last year.

Here’s the lineup for the Astros:

CF Michael Bourn

2B Jeff Keppinger

1B Lance Berkman

LF Carlos Lee

RF Hunter Pence

3B Pedro Feliz

SS Tommy Manzella

C Kevin Cash

P Brett Myers


MLB Traders is reporting that Roy asked to be traded today.
Any truth to this? I’m not surprised if it is true. GREAT guy
deserves better. Becky:(😦 :(:(

You appear to be correct Becky, But I don’t like the way he went about it by getting his agent to call Ed Wade either way maybe it’s best for both parties considering the current state of the Astros.It’s been a pleasure watching him pitch for the Astros but it will be even better watching Roy get that world serieis ring he’s been going after all this time. Anyway you put it, it’s a sad day for the Astros and even sadder day for their fans.
