The Astros- 2nd half 2006


Hitting. You must have hitting. How many times are we going to have to endure watching Roger Clemens pitch brilliantly only to lose? Hate it. Roy Oswalt recently made a statement to the effect that he knew once he had given up 3 runs late in the game, that it was over. And he took some heat from various media outlets in Houston. (More from Sports radio call-ins than anywhere else) But he also got a lot of support for what he said.

The Astros traded for Aubrey Huff, which is nice, but not really a huge difference maker. This is what the Astros line-up needs to look like:

2B- Craig Biggio
CF- Chris Burke/Willy Taveras
SS- Miguel Tejada/Alfonso Soriano
1B- The Big Puma (Lance Berkman)
3B- Morgan Ensberg
RF- Aubrey Huff
LF- Preston Wilson
C- Eric Munson

Off the bench: Eric Bruntlett, Luke Scott, Willy T./Burke, O. Palmeiro, B. Ausmus
Notably absent: Mike Lamb, Jason Lane

This is given a trade for either Soriano or Tejada, but this MUST HAPPEN for the Astros to realistically contend this year.

The idea? Trade Mike Lamb, Brad Lidge, and a Prospect to the Orioles for Tejada. Please Astros, before it's too late!

soriano can't play shortstop. he is a second baseman, and a liability even at that position. that won't work. plus, check out the dude's post season numbers, you won't want him after you see what he did with the yankees.

astros trading lidge is not a good idea if they will only get Tejada in return. shortstops and/or batters arent as tough to get as a closer.

sorry to blog on blog criticize.
