    Astros trade OF Lane to Padres


    Copyright 2007 Houston Chronicle

    The Astros have shipped outfielder Jason Lane to San Diego for a player to be named later or cash.

    The team announced the deal tonight.

    Lane, once the most-prized prospect in the Astros organization, hit just .178 in 68 games with the team this season. He's a .241 career hitter with 61 home runs in 494 games.

    Haha...now him and Morgan can reunite and suck together once again. :D

    The Padres must like out burnt out players, Redding, Ensberg and now Lane. Who's next, Ausmus?

    I can just see Morgan and Jason running toward each other in the locker room to embrace , and in the background playing :

    Reunited, and it feels so good
    Reunited, 'cause we understood
    There's one perfect fit
    And, sugar, this one is it
    We both are so excited
    'Cause we're reunited
    Hey, hey

    :D

    Cash or a player to be named later. Hmm. OK, player to be named later could be Rickey Henderson, Richard Hidalgo or Jose Lima. As for cash, maybe a couple hundred bucks and a case of Dos Equiss. Naw, player to be named later for sure (Morgan Ensberg?) Ha ha! -CF

    V-sux, that must be a relatively new sig, b/c I'm sure I would have noticed it before. Hilarious.
