Happ could have had bright future with Phils

Just last year, JA Happ finished second for rookie of the year in the National League. Now he is a member of the Houston Astros, and far away from from the team that has appeared in the last two World Series. Happ's overall record as a Philadelphia Phillie is 14-5. Now he will go try to help the Houston Astros baseball team who are next-to-last place in the NL Central and are 14 games back.

It is almost like former Phillies GM Ed Wade wants to rebuild the Astros with his old Phillies team. He has Brett Myers, Pedro Feliz, Jason Michaels, and Michael Bourn, and now he has added Happ.

Happ seemed like one of the Phillies brightest future pitching stars. A good left-handed pitcher is a bit of a rarity in the National League, and now Happ will be pitching out of a Houston Astro rotation, joining Wandy Rogriguez and Brett Myers. Happ will start right off pitching tonight at Minute Maid Park in Houston.

Here's Happ's numbers as a Phillie:
