This Date in Astros History

Jan 12, 2010:Brett Myers, a former first-round pick of the Phillies, signs a one-year deal with an option for 2011. The 29-year-old righthander spent time as ace and closer with the Phils but is coming off hip surgery. He winds up leading the Astros with 14 wins and is rewarded with an extension through 2013.
May 21, 2010:On the day it's announced that ace pitcher Roy Oswalt is asking to be traded, the last-place Astros nip the Tampa Bay Rays, 2-1, as Brett Myers scatters six hits over seven innings. The Rays have the best record in baseball while the 15-27 Astros have the National League's worst mark. Oswalt has a 2-6 record despite a 2.66 ERA.
Feb 28, 2012:Houston's new closer is starting pitcher Brett Myers, the Astros announced. Myers' contract is reworked to reflect the new assignment. The veteran was 21-22 with a 3.79 ERA in two seasons starting with Houston but did save 21 games as a closer for the 2007 Phillies. He would save 19 games in 21 opportunities before a midseason trade to the Chicago White Sox.
