Astros Begin Free Agent Offers

The free agent signing period begins, and Ed Wade plans to make multiple offers.

This is from Richard Justice's column in the HC:

Wade's free-agent strategy is smart and simple. He'll aggressively pursue more than one player at each area of need and sign the one who's ready to make a deal.

"Multiple offers, multiple positions," he said. "We're going to send a message that we're prepared to move forward and do deals sooner rather than later."

His list apparently includes Tadahito Iguchi, Scott Linebrink, Kaz Matsui, Jason Jennings, Jon Lieber and others. I asked Wade if he was nervous. At the moment, his club has questions up and down the roster....
"I'm excited," he said. "It's the time of the year you can go out on different fronts and get better. Coming into this job, I really believed we had good pieces in place. I still believe that."

Can the Astros contend in 2008?

"The reality is that it's four months before the start of a six-month season," Wade said. "All you can do is try and put the most competitive team on the field and let it play out."

In addition to those above, articles indicate that Wade is likely to make offers to Cordero, Castillo, Wolf, and Percival.
