Luke Scott, Chris Burke, Craig Biggio, What The Heck????????

I'm not sure how many times this has to be posted for people to actually let it sink it. it seems pretty clear that this is the way the season will start. Taveras could be a steal giving his amazing speed. Biggio's value will be helped due to 2nd base eligibility. Burke's value takes a huge hit here. Scott has sleeper potential but he might be the odd man out when Berkman returns (along with Burke).

Scott in left
Tavares in center
Lane in right
Biggio is at 2B

and Burke is in the minors ..

Biggio has taken all his spring AB's at 2B.

No way they leave Burke on the bench.
They will want him to have regular AB's, which he will get at AAA

Burke just went yard today...I just dont see him getting sent down even if he doesnt start. He is far better than Biggio defensively...range & arm. I still think he will be the 2nd baseman myself.

i agree with wrveres...everything I have seen and read indicates biggio at 2b and Lane in RF, Tavaras in CF and Luke Scott in RF. I would guess Burke would get sent to AAA to play everyday.

Well then my question is why are the Astros playing Burke @ 2b the last 3 games.

He helped his cause by going 4-5 with 4 Rbis & 3 runs today. Hitting his 2nd HR & stealing his 4th base.

Lamb, Lane & Scott played in the OF with Taveras making a late appearence going 1-1

Listening to Garner on MLB.TV game right now. No specifics really. Expessed concern over so many young guys and said Purpura will not be afraid to go out and get a big name if one becomes available if the youngsters don't work out.

Made a comment while Luke Scott was batting against Smoltz to the effect of "nice for him to get a chance against a guy like SMoltz while he's here". Not exactly that, but got the feeling he was leaning towards sending him down.

Also still considering 12 pitchers, which would leave Luke, Burke or Taveras out.

Luke Scott should be the odd man out. While he has had a nice spring it just makes the most sense. You need Willy T for his range in CF, especially if the put Biggio in LF, which they should do.

The alignment they could go with would be

2b Burke
CF Taveras
RF Lane
LF Biggio.

Scott to AAA so he can get more ABs & get some experience on that level.
