Astros acquired infielder Ty Wigginton from the Devil Rays for RHP Dan Wheeler.

The Astros could have gotten a couple of legitimate prospects for Wheeler, Instead, they moved him for yet another infielder who probably shouldn't be a starter for a contender. Between Adam Everett, Craig Biggio, Morgan Enbserg, Mark Loretta, Mike Lamb, Chris Burke and Eric Bruntlett, they now have seven infielders that can all be useful parts but possess clear deficiencies. The obvious problems with Wigginton are that he doesn't hit righties nearly as well as lefties and he's no asset defensively at second or third. As a part-time player, he can be quite useful, and if the Astros choose to platoon him with free-agent-to-be Mike Lamb next year, they'll get quite a bit of production out of third base. Still, they really should have gone in a different direction.




Devil Rays acquired RHP Dan Wheeler from the Astros for infielder Ty Wigginton.

It's not the direction we expected the Rays to go, but this is a nice trade for Tampa Bay. As much as Wheeler as struggling recently, he was, up until a couple of months ago, one of the NL's better relievers for a 2 1/2-year span. He should be a big upgrade in the eighth inning as soon as he turns it around, and he gives the team protection in case it gets a very good offer for Al Reyes. Since Wheeler should close if Reyes is moved, AL-only leaguers may want to pick him up.

What do you think?
Better hitters park. Better protection in lineup.
He's on the WW. Should I drop Inge and p/u Wigginton?

wow thats kind of a big news in a way. i bet he will do better, but maybe a slump first to get used to the new surroundings? he will light it up still, but i think that was an okay deal for the Rays, but the Stros could have gotten better. Still, Wiggy has the power to protect el caballo and big puma, so i think it'll turn better then expected...
