living in houston, they were talking about him yesterday. they said that since he can't get on base consistently, they were trying out other options in centerfield. with the way the astros have been playing lately, they need a lot of help. I imagine that he will be back in the lineup soon since his replacement, burke, didn't do much the past couple of days.

Awesome speed that can really disrupt another team, but with zero power, the guy's got to improve his obp to make his positives outweigh his negatives. He needs a good hitting coach like a Rod carew/Tony Gwynn to focus on becoming a singles hitter. Some guys can't be 5 tool guys, and he's wasting his talent if he works on trying to become a regular-type hitter.

Willy Taveras?

He is my sleeper in the OF for SB, but it seems he doesnt get playing time, at least for the past 5 games. Is he injured? Is he benched?

He did pretty good at the leadoff spot for steals. So I hope he plays because I traded Figgins and Schilling for Manny and Taveras.

Looks like he's playing now. Burke seperated his shoulder today. It feels kind of sick that that benefits my team.
