Re: 9-25-06 Official Game Thread - Reds vs. Little Bears - Final Home Game
Speaking of Wade Miller, the Houston Astros in a three-year span either signed as a free agent or drafted this fivesome of pitchers:
Johann Santana - best pitcher in baseball.
Roy Oswalt - stud.
Wade Miller - horse until he got injured.
Tim Redding - great stuff, head case.
Carlos Hernandez - maybe the best of the bunch but hurt his pitching shoulder sliding head first against the Reds.
That rotation would have won Houston a ton of games. But it also points out the distance between untapped and realized potential.
