Here is the link to the Astros Press Release.

Astros acquire Bourn, Costanzo, Geary from Philadelphia

Quote:
"One of our goals coming into the offseason was to find a quality speed centerfielder who could hit at the top of the order and give us a spark," said Wade. "Bourn is an outstanding young player who will make an immediate impact and should be productive for a long time. Plus, his addition allows us to move Hunter Pence to right field, where he will continue to grow into the All-Star caliber player that we know he's capable of becoming.

"While Bourn was the key to the deal for us, we also believe that Geoff Geary will do a solid job in our bullpen, and Mike Costanzo is an outstanding power prospect at third base.

"Brad Lidge and Eric Bruntlett have been outstanding members of the Astros' organization. We weren't anxious to trade either player, but this deal makes sense for both the Astros and the Phillies."

Right now this seems to have created new unanswered questions and left many of the orginal questions unanswered. I take it Wade has a master plan that we aren't privy to, lol.

I think we must have a really good shot at Cordero or he would not have made this move.

The Cardinals always had an unfair advantage against Lidge - HGH, alcohol, pot...

Maybe a new place will be better for Brad. I have to admit that I like him. But he lost the spark here. Houston was not the place for him anymore. I hope it is good for Bruntlett as well. With him gone Lamb and Luke are safer.
