Time to Honor the Original Rocket

Friend of the blog Jeff Pearlman has an outstanding piece over at ESPN.com beseeching the Astros to get off their hinders at retire J.R. Richard's number.

As a young lad in the 1970s, I didn't think it was possible for a right-handed pitcher to be more dominating than Richard. Watching him pitch against the Cubs in the Astrodome was a dreadful, wonderful thing -- dreadful because he's make my heroes look like a bunch of Little Leaguers, wonderful because watching pitchers who are really good and know what they're doing is a treasure.

Sign the petition. Let the Astros know you want to see the Original Rocket get the honor he deserves.
