Astros - Signed Feliz
Houston Astros - Signed 3B Pedro Feliz to a 1-year, $4.5 million contract.
Better than Geoff Blum! This has been the rallying cry of Astros fans since this signing. I wonder if these same fans, when given a 20% salary cut at the office, would proclaim “It’s better than roaming the streets looking for used hypodermic needles in trash cans!” Or, if being served a raccoon stuffed with spam at Christmas, yell out “At least it beats Taco Bell!” in cries of joy.
The Astros think they’re a competitor for the division in 2010. Which, I guess, is kind of cute, in the same way a 10-year-old rightfielder with coke-bottle glasses thinking he’s going to be Albert Pujols is a little endearing. Feliz’s defense has been getting more ordinary (mordinary?) the last couple of seasons and given what a hack he is at the plate, this isn’t really the best plan for the Astros, even if they really were an 85-90 win team. Well, at least given the state of the farm system, Feliz isn’t blocking anyone (Chris Johnson wouldn’t be all that good in 2010).
