Don’t kid yourselves, SOME team would have traded for him for even for the low A filler crap fans don’t think he’s worth.In 2006, Lidge had 32 saves in 38 chances, he is NOT hurt, he can throw a FB 96-97 MPH and trust me, there are replica A Lange & Sohne 315.032 Men's watch of teams who would take that in a second.Even if a whole lot of Astros fans think he is worth exactly zero, or that we would have to actually release him (and pay the rest of his salary) because no one would either trade for him or grab him offn waivers.So WHY was Lidge kept?
Opening Day for MLB begins tonight with the Yankees Red Sox at Yankee stadium.(WHY do I think that if ESPN HQ was here in, say Austin, we would have a LOT less Red Sox Yanks and a LOT more Rangers and Astros?) Interesting that the game is on replica Raymond Weil 2310.STG00808 Men's watch and GIRLS basketball is on the main ESPN.Can you believe that female athletes (wearing lots of clothes and not exactly looking like strippers) are on the main channel instead of Sox Yanks…..But anyway, OUR Opening Day is a little more than 48 hours away.And at this time, Phil Garner STILL has not finished the 25 man roster or given the Opening Day lineup.
Yesterday, on the Astros preview on Fox, Craig Biggio was labeled a “utility” guy.Very Interesting did they hear something privately and decide to keep it to themselves? Will Biggio or Burke start at second? Biggio has only played one game (part of it) in the OF this spring, so I kinda doubt that he will be starting out there.Which is a replica Raymond Weil 2710-ST-20001 Men's watch plan.Chris Burke has out-hit Biggio this spring .347 BA with 11 RBIs, 17 49 with a double, a triple and 2 HR .531 SLG% and is 3 fer 4 in SB while Biggio has a .292 BA (.354 SLG%) with 3 doubles, NO HR or SB.(sorry, I have no data on fielding, but I have SEEN Biggio field in a few games this spring and it isn't pretty…)
