Pedro Feliz Is Pedro Feliz For Astros, God For Cardinals

Astros fans did not expect much for the 2010 season, but no one could've foreseen such an offensive power outage. Going into the season, the Astros had regular expectations for Berkman, Lee, Bourn, and even Feliz. Berkman and Lee had been all-star sluggers for the entirety of their careers, and Bourn made great strides the previous year. But Feliz was as consistent as them all; he had averaged 15 home runs and 60 RBI's for nine seasons. That's not too much to live up to, and with the Crawford porch so close, he could at least hit 20 home runs.

Such wasn't the case. He managed to hit .221 while slugging four home runs and 31 RBIs in 97 games.

So much for Mr. Feliz. He is 35...

OH WAIT A SECOND.

In two games with the Cardinals, Feliz has three runs, four RBI's, and four hits. He also hit a triple...off Tim Lincecum.

I once felt sorry for Feliz. His not-that-good-but-better-than-mediocre career was coming to a shrieking halt. Then he goes to the Cardinals and lights it up. Good day to you, Pedro I'm-not-Feliz-with-your-production.
