In the video above (via @alysonfooter), Livan Hernandez meets with the media after starting for the Astros against the Nationals on Saturday. Ingore the fact that his answers are basically inaudible (even with volume maxed out); it's good to see Livo. Now, fans in DC didn't get to SEE Livan Hernandez pitching for the Astros on Saturday, but it certainly sounded weird to HEAR Livo pitching against the Nats on the radio. Here's more on Livo and the Nats; and here's Davey on the weirdness:
"It was really weird [facing Hernandez]. I mean, I love the guy for a lot of reasons. Not just because he is one heck of an athlete, but a heck of a pitcher. He was a great influence on this ballclub."

Here's Livo, via Astros.com. Apparently you can teach an old dog new tricks:
"I'm still learning. I've got 15 years in the league and I'm still learning something new every day."
