I'd advise doing so. This kid is tearing it up in his first 3 games.. 17 innings 18 SO's and a 0.90 era (Lower now because he just breezed through another inning) Finally have something to be thankful for as an Astro's fan. Smile

he did ok. Got the win. and still has a 2-1 SO - W ratio. 22 SO 11 W's. and an ERA of 3.00. I'll take that over what most of my pitchers are doing right now.

Actually last night he posted an ERA of 7.20 with a 2.20 WHIP. He's not always gonna be perfect right out of the gate, I think he's gonna be solid.

I'm not too crazy on Norris. He'll be a solid pitcher in the Majors, but I think you're looking at a middle of the rotation kind of guy who's going to be asked to be a top of the rotation guy. Thoughout the minors, he had success but was always at an age appropriate level if not a bit older than the competition. Despite that, he still had somewhat shaky control and was a bit too HR prone. He'll probably be able to do well for the rest of this season, but I wouldn't be surprised if he gets hit hard to start off next season when teams have a better scouting report on him plus experience against him.

Well they still go "Snap, Crackle, Mitch, and Pop!" It just doesn't taste quite as good anymore. Very Happy
