Why would you bat Berkman 5th when he's got the best OBP?

Yes, and my SP is leading off versus lefties. ;-)

I guess I was just saying those are Houston's best 2008 hitters IMO. I was just putting Berkman at 5 because the other two run so much better. I could see a Pence, Berkman, Lee, Tejada 2-5 but I just wouldn't be too optimistic about Tejada as a Houston fan.

1. Bourn
2. Pence
3. Berkman
4. Lee
5. Tejada
6. Wigginton
7. Matsui
8. Towles
9. Pitcher

That's how I would set it up. Of course Matsui will probably be batting 1/2 screwing it up :~(

I've seen someone who heard Wade on the radio project the lineup to be:

Bourn
Matsui
Tejada (playing short)
Berkman
Lee
Pence
Wiggington (playing 3rd)
Towles

so, your fears might be coming true. Still an excellent 3 4 5 6.

They need to drop Tejada down behind Lee and in front of Pence. Cause you know that Matsui is gonna bat 2nd. Unless Bourn stinks up the joint and drops to 8th.

Just about to post that. Hopefully Cooper sticks with short term just to please Wade the stupid fans, then tinker with it.

sure that lineup looks good, but im confused as to what the stros are trying to do now. do they really think they have a shot at winning anything in the next few years? i sure dont think so. so why trade some of the only pieces you have in your farm for this deal...

not that i think they gave up alot, because they really didnt. im surprised a contender couldnt top this offer.

SIGS!

Compounding people's skepticism about the net gain should be the fact that they are non-tendering Evertt. I am not a sabrematrician, but I recall seeing the contribution his defense makes as more than making up for his anemic offense. Tejada at .290/20 is not $13M/year better than Everett's weak bat + great defense.

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!!!!
