Not that this is a huge news (in fact, it is old news) but I searched and came up empty.


Pedro Astacio is now a Padre. Rangers designated him for assignment on 6/17. Too bad he is not in the AL anymore. He was good to the Sox offense.

I think most people didn't even know Pedro Astacio was still in the league, even when he was on the Rangers. His career has been done (not literally but in spirit) for a couple years now.

I had no idea he was with the Rangers so he could be designated for assignment.

I signed Pedro Astacio as a fifth starter in my High Heat 2003 season. Yeah, well, it was better than trotting out a Danny Wright or whoever the hell 'take a ticket' fifth starter we had back then.

And I won the World Series that year.:cool:

I must admit, I lost track of him too.

The Giants are only 6 games back, after tonight maybe only 5.5

The Padres are loading up with 5th starters trying to coast in.

I wouldn't give up if i were them.
