    Astros are involved in 5 of them directly & indirectly. The pic of Bagwell in the retro uni was an obvious attention getter :)

    (though he technically did wear the version of the uniform that just had the rainbow on the sleeve, without the full-on rainbow)

    I remember back in 2002 I was the Astros on a playstation game and my friend always picked the Red Sox. Bagwell came to the plate and one of the video game announcers said, "the sox are still kicking themselves for giving this guy away to the Astros." Something to that extent at least. I was just so shocked that even the video game makers had remembered this trade and decided to include it for the few times gamers might actually pick the 'stros and sox to play each other.

    The guy that made this list thinks Baggy will be a first ballot HOF. I would love to be a homer and agree but I think he should go in his second year, too many injuries at the end but wasn't that old yet. The plus side to that negative though is that Biggio (who has to be a 1st ballot) and Bagwell go into the Hall together :D
