This snippet (behind the pay wall) is just one of many reasons why I won't be re-upping my subscription:
"Houston Astros: Ed Wade's kamikaze run to nowhere enters its second season, and with Carlos Lee, Lance Berkman, and Roy Oswalt almost unmoveable from the roster with their long-term deals, there's really nothing to do but make the best of this year's equally feeble race for relevance. There aren't really prospects they can afford to deal, so they're limited to asking after second-rate relievers to shore up a third-rate bullpen. Trying to tear down, their best play would be to see what people would give them for the last two months of Jose Valverde's or Miguel Tejada's contracts. A wild suggestion? Help out a weak defense by moving Tejada to third base already, and put Jeff Keppinger and/or Geoff Blum to short; nobody's going to sign Tejada to play short this winter, so maybe he'll thank you later. And if you decide you like Keppinger at short well enough for 2010, you won't have to shop for Tejada's replacement, will you?"
