Astros sign Jose Viscaino for 1 year, $1.5 million
This might be the bitterness from seeing Viscaino hurt the Mets talking,
but paying $1.5 million for a backup infielder doesn't seem to be the
smartest move to start with after coming off a very disappointing season.
Sure, the goggles look cool, but he's not going to help the Astros much
more than a AAA shortstop would.
Triple Steal Rating: Out
Astros Team Page
Grand Slam - A can't miss move; automatically makes
the team considerably better.
Home Run - A great move;
will help the team now and down the road.
Triple - A good move; plugs
a temporary hole or will help in the future.
Double - An average move;
team will get what they paid for.
Single - A head-scratcher;
could help, but we definitely don't see how.
Out - A panic move; tells
fans "hey, we're trying..."
Double Play - A disaster;
will make fans angry just thinking about it.
