Astros running

just an observation, but ever since Garner has taken over, houston has been running quite a bit. Maybe the SB projections for Beltran in the second half shouldnt be so grim.

Anyone know if Adam Everett is in the number 2 spot for good, or is Garner moving the lineup around a lot? He could be relatively valuable if he's hitting 2nd.

I agree....He's too good to have the record he has this year.

I need his wins, I spent too much money on him to have him leave me in the bottom half of the wins category.

Well Carlos hasn't stolen a base in a couple of weeks, although I'll take all the 2 home run perfomances I can get.

Am I mistaken or would my 35-35 prediction have been money had he not been hitting third for the Astos. Who could have the thought the 35 he'd miss would be steals.

Besides, I think Garner is a temp who may not make it to the end of the year so Beltran may continue to hit solo jacks like he's been doing in Houston hitting behing Biggio and either Everett or Vizcaino.

Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.
