Not that we were needing him since the unoffical signing of Marquis but he came at a big price.. Heres the story from foxsports.com
The Astros have acquired right-hander Jason Jennings from the Rockies, FOXSports.com has learned.The Rockies will receive center fielder Willy Taveras and right-handers Jason Hirsh and Taylor Buchholz for Jennings and right-hander Miguel Asencio, major-league sources said.Jennings, 28, will replace left-hander Andy Pettitte in the Astros' rotation. Pettitte, 34, signed a two-year, $32 million free-agent contract with the Yankees last Friday.
The Astros, who still could re-sign free-agent right-hander Roger Clemens, paid a steep price for Jennings, a pitcher with a 4.74 career ERA and only one season of more than 12 wins.The package is similar to the one that the Astros discussed last week with the White Sox in a proposed trade for right-hander Jon Garland.The quality of the players going to the Rockies will increase the pressure on the Astros to sign Jennings — a free agent at the end of next season — to a long-term contract.
Taveras, Hirsh and Buchholz for him?? Thats not worth someone who won only more than 12 games once.. im glad we didnt try that hard to get him...
