Astros Vs. Pirates Saturday Lineups: All-Righties Face Wandy Rodriguez At Minute Maid Park

That awkward moment is here - when Wandy Rodriguez pitches for a division opponent as a visitor at Minute Maid Park less than a week from being the longest tenured Astros player. Houston fans should be over it by now. The team wasn't going anywhere for the next several years with or without Wandy, so what difference does it make, really?

The Astros are going to try to tattoo Wandy with the H-Town star tonight with this all-righties lineup. Beware.
