Astros - Signed Woody

Houston Astros - Signed P Woody Williams to a 2-year contract.

This comes in at $12.5 million.  The beauty of the Astro signing of Carlos Lee is that no matter what they do the rest of the offseason, they’ll totally look smart and prudent.  Woody’s not a bad pitcher, but he’s an old pitcher without much stuff and most importantly, he’s a flyball pitcher going to a park that won’t hold a lot of his Petco flies.  The Astros still have a lot of rotation work to do - Clemens is what made the Astros 2nd instead of 4th and Williams isn’t going to replace any of Clemens’ value, only be an OK #3/#4 starter who isn’t very durable.

For about two years (the second-half of 2001 through the first half of 2003), Woody Williams was damn near unhittable.

What happened in mid-2003? Did he get hurt or did he just get old?
