Woody Williams Needs Some Run Support

The Astros are doing better. Still below .500 but winning here and there. This post however, is solely dedicated to Woody Williams. I love this guy. He is hasn't gotten a W yet this season but it isn't because he is pitching poorly. It just kills me how the offense just shuts down every time this guy pitches. I am getting angry about it! Okay last night Williams pitched and gave up 3 runs. St. Louis ended up winning the game 3-2. So today Matt Albers pitches and the Astros get a freaking 13 runs?! They won 13-0. If just half of those runs had been scored the night before Woody Williams would have gotten his first W as an Astro. So many people are down on him as a pitcher. I don't understand that. No he is not a strikeout type of guy and relies a lot on getting batters out with fly balls or grounders. He is a contact pitcher. Nothing wrong with that. What is wrong with the picture is the anemic Houston offense that doesn't lift a darn finger to back this fine pitcher up. Let's go Astros. You did good with Wandy Rodriguez (but the bullpen blew that one). Let the man get a win next time around. Please. He is doing his job, so should the bats.
