Chronicle says the insurance company has denied the Astros' claim on Bagwell.

But get this--not because the club allowed Jeff to play in Spring Training, but because they allowed him to play in the World Series!

Connecticut General Life Insurance  was the name of the outfit, and they had a lawyer say

The company determined that there had been no adverse change in Mr. Bagwell's condition or ability to play baseball between the end of last season, when he was an active member of the roster, and January 31, 2006, the date the policy expired

But Drayton's going to litigation on this:

I feel we stand a great opportunity to win this. We still were well within our rights in the contract we entered with Connecticut General.

I hope he wins, too.  We just freaking determined that Bagwell was a disabled player.  Team and player agree.
