Cecil has shaken things up. Mr. Berkman has been moved down to the fifth spot. He's actually hit there more than I thought he had: 150 games, and 509 ABs. If memory serves he batted fifth when Carlos Beltran was an Astro for the second half of 2004. He's OPS'ed .960 when slotted in the five hole.

The San Diego Padres come to town, but we still have to face a Cub. At least Chad Gaudin is only a FORMER Cub.

Brian Giles destroys Houston pitching. Whether he's with the Pirates or Padres, he lights up our staff like so many Lite Brites. Ok. Sorry that's two Lite Brite references in as many days. My bad. Anyways- .315/.421/.994, 20 HR, and a 69/49 K/BB ratio in 394 ABs for Giles. At least Ryan Klesko has retired, right?
