By the way...he also goes by the name "Rick".

from rotoworld:

Astros purchased the contracts of RHP Brian Moehler and RHP Rich White from Triple-A Round Rock.

Moehler had a 6.57 ERA for the Marlins last season. White was at 5.15 for the Reds and Phillies. Neither guy is going to be asked to protect leads often at all, but it's still a bad sign that they're two of the 12 pitchers the Astros have chosen to go forward with. With Dave Borkowski also on the roster, that's three very mediocre right-handers in middle relief.

Brian Moeller and Rick White.

Wow. Those are two names I'd like to forget. At least we get to hit against those bums this year.

And with the Stros on the schedule early, that could help us in the standings quickly.:)

That's just an indication of why the Asstros are over-rated this year, media darlings that they are...

This could be an indication that Houston could be in some rough waters this year. Weak offense. Some brutal arms in the pen.

Well at least the Astros aren't considering making White their closer....the Reds may just yet make White's twin (http://www.redszone.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1229305&postcount=21) their closer....

Rick White will be fine with the Astros because they'll know how to use him. :)

When the game is out of reach? That's the only time you should use him.

The only time to use Rick White is if you have the over.

Watch both Moehler and White own us in 2007.

I wouldn't be the bit surprised.
