Astros Opening Day Lineup: Who The Hell Are These Guys?

​Next Monday brings the Opening Day of baseball season, and while Astro hopes aren't high, as announced previously we've decided to take a sunny -- some would say Panglossian -- attitude towards the whole thing.

That may be tough to do, given what were told is a reliable guess at that the Opening Day lineup will be.

Injuries have hit some key players, age has hit others, and still others have been afflicted with a lack of talent. Let's take a look at who will be on the field for your Stros Monday against the Giants:

Blum -- 1B
Matsui --2B
Manzella -- SS
Feliz -- 3B
Lee -- LF
Bourn -- CF
Pence -- RF
Towles -- C

And this is the improved lineup, with Manzella actually assumed to be getting back from an injury that might have kept him out.

How many first names can you attach to those eight players? (Roy-O -- assuming he returns from his own injury -- will of course be the starting pitcher.) It's a mere five for us. To be sure, we haven't been keeping up with spring training, but still, that's a whole lot of newness.

Not to mention a) Matsui will no doubt hit the DL within a couple of weeks; and b) Carlos Lee is still somehow playing in the outfield. It's as if the Astros don't realize playing the outfield requires a person to run.

You've got Geoff Blum in a new position, filling in for an injured Lance Berkman, and you've got guys named Towles, Feliz and Manzella.

Towles (first name J.R., by the way; nickname "Soggy." Maybe.) is the catcher, which is supposed to be the quarterback of the team. He's been up to the bigs for the proverbial cup of coffee for each of the last three years, and his next RBI will put him in double-digits for his career.

Tommy Manzella is a shortstop, who's supposed to be the quarterback of the infield. He has played in a total of seven major league games and is still looking for his second career hit.

Pedro Feliz has managed to be in the bigs for a decade without hitting the radar of the casual fan, as far as we can tell.

On the one hand, it's not like these guys are replacing All-Stars. On the other, who the hell are they?

To summarize:

1B -- 37-year-old guy playing out of position
2B -- About-to-be-injured guy
SS -- Unproven rookie with seven big-league games under his belt
3B -- Journeyman
C -- Unproven rookie equivalent
LF -- Guy who doesn't like to exert himself
CF -- Nice player
RF -- Nice player

We're trying hard to remain optimistic. Hopefully we can hold it at least last through the first week. Fingers crossed.

Anyone know of any good ticket brokers or other places to buy tickets to Astros games?

I'm looking for tickets to today's (4/7) day game at 1:05pm.

I'm from Dallas and I have my go to guys there for great seats below face value for anything in Dallas, but I haven't found much here in Houston.

Otherwise, I might just go with "Market Value" field box seats and buy them at the park.

just go to the ticket window and buy the cheapest seat which is ten bucks at least thats what it used to be. you will be able to move down to field level very easily. stadium has been super empty for the first two games.

I say blow it up and get as much as they can. Oswalt deserves better at this point in his career, and Lee is a DH, maybe even get something for Berkman. With what we have, Im sure there are contenders by mid season who would be willing to let some young pieces go. We should have started rebuilding last season.

the only thing i want is a new owner, he is filthy rich and could drop yankee money but is too cheap to do that. yes you do not have to spend 200 million a year to have a winning team but the yankees sell out every game and have been for years. I swear houston has some of the cheapest owners.

HPorkchopD
04-12-2010, 08:19 AM
Who would you guys like to see them keep/sell if infact they sell the Astros and the new owner decides to spend some cash?

Id like to see them keep Pence, and Bourn obviously. But who else?

A bit of an exaggeration, the Yanks dont sell out every game. And we've had one of the highest payroll in baseball in recent years. same with the Texans and Les is always willing to spend on the Rockets. Drayton's stupid move came years ago when he fired Hunsicker, its been all downhill since then. The 05 World Series team was all Hunsicker. Our once great farm system is terrible, and all of that can be pointed to the GMs. The owner is incompetent more than anything, and Ed Wade is a joke of a GM, its no coincidence the Phillies are who they are after he's left.

Im convinced Carlos Lee is out to screw this team over. Anyone see his error in the first inning? The ball got past him and he just stood there. Bourn had MUCH more ground to cover and fkin Lee just stood there like he was looking for work at Home Depot.

As much as I would hate to see Oswalt traded, If you can get some good prospects (at least one being major league ready) it should be done. Good pitching is always @ a premium and the Astros won't be contending in the Central this or next year.

FUCK YES ! ITS ABOUT FUCKING TIME !!!!

The Astros have asked for waivers on Kazuo Matsui for the purpose of giving him his unconditional release. The club has purchased the contract of IF Oswaldo Navarro from Triple-A Round Rock. Jeff Keppinger will continue to get the majority of the playing time at second base.

LS is a consistent 250 BA hitter, nothing special
