The numbers tossed around regarding contracts were 105 mill 6 years before the comeback and 120 mill 7 years after (Bagwell money.)2) Carlos was quoted as saying that he didn't want to sign if they didn't re-sign Berkman, Oswalt and (believe it or not) Adam Everett (that boy has an replica Cartier w3019351 watch glove and is a very good ballplayer not all shortstops are HR hitters, ya know…) Who can blame him? No point in being a straw if there ain't no drink to stir.Right, Reggie?3) I had forgotten this, but the team refused to consider signing Berkman to a long term contract this spring, his second arb year.That was mucho stupido.He has had 4 years of excellence, in the top 10 of every offensive category for 4 years running and was MVP runner up in 2001.
(He couldn't beat out u-know-who either, Albert.)4) The columnists are talking about bringing Kent back at a lower price and trading Burke for pitching (stupid beyond belief) but I replica Cartier w20098d6 watch doubt it.5) The columnists seem pretty sure that Roger will be back no direct quotes, of course.Fact Berkman is 28 and has been in the top 10 of ballplayers for 5 years and needs to be signed (but NOT for 8 years) to a good deal.We don't exactly have anyone to replace him.Not all ballplayers go into serious decline immediately after turning 27.It's not like the law of gravity.Fact Roy (just turned 27) is one of the top 10 pitchers in the NL, has been since he came up in 01 and needs to be signed?to a?long term deal because?he's 1 year from FA.
KEWL!Keppinger had a 4 pitch walk (I was surprised they had him in against a lefty, but youneverknow) and then Hunter Pence FINALLY got a good swing on a pitch and hit it over the tracks onto Crawford Street.Yeah, it did go over I saw it.Milo obviously didn't I heard the replay.Then the next 4 guys each singled and it was replica Longines L18.104.22.168.6 Ladie's watch Astros 5, Phils 4 when Quintero grounded out, leaving bases loaded.Yes, you read that right.The Astros FINALLY led in a ballgame!Paulino struggled with his command (what IS it with the Astros pitchers not being able to throw strikes??) and gave up 4 walks, 3 hits, 4 K and 3 ER over 5 IP, going to 3 ball counts on 6 of the 23 hitters.
