Loretta to sign with the Astros

Mark_lorettaThe Houston Astros have reached a deal with Mark Loretta, according to his agent Bob Garber.

The deal is reportedly worth $2.5 million ($3.5 million w/incentives), for one-year.

Loretta aslo received offers from the Texas Rangers and the Cincinnati Reds.

So, you say "But, the Astros just signed Biggio." Well this is what his agent said "[Loretta will play] all over the infield."

2006 stats w/ the Boston Red Sox:
AVG:.285
HR:5
RBI:59
SB:4

My comments: I love this move, except for one thing. THE LENGTH OF THE CONTRACT!!! Being an Astros fan, I want someone to replace Biggio when he goes. But, if Loretta doesn’t resign, then Chris Burke  might have to change back to a second baseman. I still like the deal.
