MLB Opening Day 2012: Houston Astros Set To Open Against Rockies

Opening Day 2012 is right around the corner, and for Houston Astros fans, it's a bittersweet time. It's the start of a new regime in Houston, with a new owner and general manager, but it's also the last season that the Astros will be in the National League.

Wandy Rodriguez will start on Opening Day for Houston, which is on Friday, April 6, as the Astros host the Colorado Rockies. Jeremy Guthrie will start for the Rockies against Rodriguez. Astros fans will get a treat on Saturday, April 7, as the timeless Jamie Moyer will start for the Rockies against Houston.

Houston's homestand will continue with a series against the Atlanta Braves, before the Astros head on the road for the first time this season. Houston's first road series in 2012 will come against the Miami Marlins, so Astros fans will get a firsthand look at that home run....sculpture in Miami.
