Not anymore. Houston traded away Blum. Ensberg will start next year. ;-)


Not to jinx it but the Astro's did resign The Great Harry Carey's favorite player...Jose Vizcaino! I see Jose stealing 20-25 starts from Morgan. Anything to stunt the growth of his young players. JIMY IS THE MAN!!!!!!!!!! :-t

Didn't know that Blum was gone...but totally agree that SOMEONE on the bench is going to hit an empty .320 over a two-week span, or get a little hitting streak like Blum did last year, and Ensberg will wind up on the bench again. :-D

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I think of sleepers as players flying under the radar who I believe will have good years and will be cheap(auction) or a low draft position:

I like Michael Young, Miguel Cabrera, Cliff Floyd, Shawn Chacon as closer, Scott Spezio, Scott Williamson, Paul Konerko, Danny Graves, Ty Wigginton, Brian Schneider, Jeriome Robertson, LaTroy Hawkins, Horacio Ramirez, Jody Gerut, Placido Polanco,
