Willy Tavares update

I am suprised no one mentioned him. He went 2-4 last night. If he can hit at a decent clip, I don't see him being benched with his speed. I am really keeping an eye on this guy. His speed alone is scary.

Honestly, this is nothing new and has been talked about quite often. He was silly fast in the minors where he racked up some 160 SB in 3 years. Even if you transfer those numbers to the majors and take into account that he won’t ever reach those number in the bigs, he’s still gonna put up some good stuff. Here’s your sleeper SB, especially at leadoff.

Isn't he on the bench or back in the minors as soon as Berkman comes back?

That's my point RealDawg, if he hits say .265 and up I think he will find a spot on this team. With his speed, if he can hit for a decent average, he wont go anywhere. Maybe move him to left?

How many times is this guy's name going to get misspelled on the cafe?

He hit 8th last night. 2-4 is nice but lets see what he can do with a few more AB.

Also did anyone else think he looked shakey in CF last night? I thought he was supposed to be good defensively.

I'm not all that familiar with the Astros. Who's in their OF right now? Biggio? anyone else worth a damn?
