A-Rod to the Astros? Absolutely not.

I'm getting e-mails about bringing Alex Rodriguez to the Astros. To those of you who have written, let me ask you a simple question: Are you nuts? Why in the world would you want to take another team's problem? If the Yankees want to trade Derek Jeter or Hideki Matsui, let's do business. A-Rod? Absolutely not.

First of all, the guy is walking, talking distraction. If the Astros get A-Rod, they ought to go get Terrell Owens, too. Players like that don't win. They split locker rooms. They have their own agendas. They're all about themselves.

Second of all, A-Rod would see Houston as a trip back to Double-A ball. He'd separate himself from the other players. He'd let everyone know he was different. He'd care nothing about his teammates.

Third of all, his salary means he's the type player you build a team around. Problem is, he's not capable of doing that. He's a great player. He puts up great numbers. But when the game is on the line, when it really counts, he's the last guy on earth you want on the plate.

Sorry...I disagree.. I think A-Rod would fit almost anywhere besides New York. Jeff Kent had no problems in Houston.

Comparing A-Rod to TO is ridiculous. There's no comparison. A-Rod doesn't rip his teammates, and is only a distraction because the media makes him one. He doesn't do anything to stand out, other than be one of the best players in all of baseball. Alex in Houston would a great fit, IMO. Still have great defense and match that can't be matched at that position.

A-Rod is no where near T.O. calibure. T.O. talks so much crap. There is even a bigger difference between them. Pretty much any team in the Major League's would take Alex Rodriguez. The Dallas Cowboys are one of two teams that were interested in Terrel Owens. Nobody wanted T.O. because of his huge mouth. A-Rod never rags down his teammates. I have never seen him complain like T.O. did on the Superbowl.
