On a recent broadcast of The Usual Suspects,  the afternoon sports talks show on ESPN 97.5 radio, Joel Blank and Barry Laminack expressed their frustration with the Astros for dropping yet another game to the Texas Rangers. Even though the Astros currently have the winningest record in the American League, the guys are getting concerned with the inability of the starting pitching to go deep into games, the bats going cold, and Josh Reddick hitting the DL with a concussion.

Nobody is ready to hit the panic button yet, but it may be time for the Astros to add another starting pitcher.
