Today was a wonderful day, the rain stopped the sky was blue, the birds were chirping and Pudge Rodriguez signed with the Astros. I had given up hope that Pudge would be an Astro and I had resigned myself to the possibility of him being a Marlin again. Or even worse, still looking for a job on opening day.
As long as he passes his physical he will be a member of my third favorite team. I think it will be a good fit for him and the Astros. It will be nice getting to see him play on television more this year. Well, I guess I shouldn’t jump the gun on how much playing time he will get. I’ll think he’ll get plenty though.
I’ll leave you with a video from ESPN that features a phone interview with Pudge and comments from Steve Phillips.
