I would like that answered as well, but I doubt he will be in the lineup today.

(rotoworld yesterday)

While they praised his versatility, the Astros indicated they see Ty Wigginton as their primary third baseman going forward.

They might as well just release Morgan Ensberg then. Ensberg has been playing strictly against lefties lately, but Wigginton will inherit that role now and start against most righties apparently. Unless trade, Mike Lamb will likely see more time at first, with Lance Berkman moving back and forth between there and right field. The Astros might choose to cut Lamb's at-bats if they're willing to commit to Wigginton at third. After all, Lamb is a free agent at season's end and Wigginton is signed through 2009.

(cbs sportsline today)
Ty Wigginton, 1B TB
News: One day after acquiring Ty Wigginton in a trade with Tampa Bay, the Astros designated struggling third baseman Morgan Ensberg for assignment Sunday. The 29-year-old Wigginton was in the starting lineup for the Astros for Sunday's game against San Diego.
Analysis: Wigginton was hitting .275 with 16 home runs and 49 RBI in 98 games for Tampa Bay this season. There is pop in his bat and Houston is a great home hitter's park for him. Consider him a solid start in most Fantasy leagues and consider him the No. 1 guy to add in NL-only leagues via waivers at the trade deadline.

I wouldn't put much stock in anything that comes out Garners mouth. He's one of the worst managers around.
