Done deal

Astros get: Tejada, that's it

Orioles get: Albers, Scott, Sarfate, Costanzo, Patton

That is quite the haul for the O's. I will have to think about this.

My initial reaction is that Scott will outhit Tejada next year.

Ok, so after a minute of thought I hate it. The Astros trade 5 assets(some small though) for one asset. Miggy is a bargain in his current deal for the next 2 years. Patton is under control for 6 years. Costanzo 6 years. Albers 5 years. Scott 4 years. Sarfate 6 years. That is 27 years of controlled salary for 2. Even if the O's get half of those years at even league average production they win huge.

I have to bring up my thought about the Stros not being able to win again. Going into the off season I wanted the Stros to sign Wolf and Linebrink, thats it. Since then they have made many trades, signed a below-average 2nd Baseman, and amassed tons of RPs. They still have a joke of a rotation; I mean a real real joke. They now have sevaeral superstars(Berkman, Tejada, Oswalt, Lee) all over 30 wasting there prime years on a losing team.

The hedgehog looked at Houston and predicted a long winter; I predict 5 more years of losing baseball. I can only imagine the Stros will sign 2 crappy pitchers for like 25mil a year. SCREW ME SIDEWAYS
