Astros Winter Meeting Tuesday Roundup

I tried to find pics of Paul Runge or Wandy's new agent, but came up empty. This was the best I could do...

Two fairly major pieces of news to come out of the Winter Meetings Tuesday.

Wait, I just looked up what "major" means. Turns out I was wrong. They're fairly insignificant pieces of news, but it's about all we got on a slow news day that saw none of the big teams do anything of note. So, what did the Astros do?

First, they hired Paul Runge to be their minor league field coordinator. That position came open when the previous field coordinator took the same job with the New York Mets. Apparently, Dick Scott had history with Sandy Alderson and J.P. Ricciardi, so he joined up with them there. Runge was the runner-up to Scott when the job first came open, so it's not like the Astros had to scrape the barrel for a replacement.

Second...um, well...Wandy Rodriguez changed agents? Does that qualify as news? Oh, and apparently the Astros are still looking for second base help and may be quite active in the Rule V draft. That's all courtesy of Brian McTaggart and Zachary Levine, who must be bored out there in Florida with so little to do. Keep the news flowing, boys.
