    Maybe this will put the Astros in a better position. Then again, a request like that did not stop Washington from trading for Soriano.

    Soriano was going to test the FA market anyways, so it wouldn't have done him any good to just not play in a contract year. Tejada will have the option to demand a trade or become a FA if he isn't moved, so he has the better leverage which means the Astros definately have an advantage in being a team that is offering the starting SS job (unless Garner and Purpura think that Everett's double play in the playoffs was so important that he gets to keep that job no matter what :p ) . On the otherhand, if the Angels are still in it, Orlando Cabrera already said he'd move over to third. BTW, is Chone Figgins part of their package for Tejada???
