Adam Everett a gold glove caliber SS is just left out in the wind here? I know the Astros need offense, I guess they could still deal Everett for something.
Somebody mentioned that the Astros need SP, the Tribe has at least 3 guys available that could be had relatively cheap: Cliff Lee who won 18 games a couple years ago, Jeremy Sowers who struggled last year, but is still a nice potential #3 SP, and Aaron Laffey who pitched well for the Tribe last year. Those 3 and perhaps Adam Miller, who is also available, are going to fight it out for the #5 job. So 3 of these 4 guys, all of which should be on some Major League club will be in the minors.
As for Tejada, he is declining and I think it is because he quit taking roids, but he is still productive for a SS. Worth a shot it does not look like the Astros gave up much to give him.
P.S. Are you sure that they are non-tendering Everett? I would think that they could trade him for something.
Give Snakes his due!!!! Snakes deserves the fantasy expert icon!!! Go Snakes!!!!
