It's Okay, Astros Offense: The Pitchers Are Here To Help

'Inept' could be an appropriate description of the Astros' offense at times. Only recently has Lance Berkman picked it up, and it took Felipe Paulino four quality starts to finally get his first win.

The 'Stros pitching staff recognizes these troubles, and has done their best to help. Paulino himself is batting .333 in 21 at bats. Gustavo Chacín homered in his only at bat this year. And Wandy Rodriguez is hitting a respectable .250. You have to hand it to the pitching staff: they're trying their best to help.

This now begs the question... if Felipe keeps this up, does he bat cleanup? Ok, fine, I'm getting ahead of myself. But wouldn't it be great?
