Blog post from Tags where he updates his projection for Opening Day roster. Regard:
The signing of Pudge pushes Lou Palmisano out the door. The question is if the Astros have seen enough to try to keep Palmisano in the organization somehow.
I still see Jason Smith as the backup, especially with Tommy Manzella gone.
I'm surprised that de la Vara wasn't included on this list - but again, I'm not sure who he would bump from that bullpen. After all, the bullpen is the only solid portion of the club that I feel pretty strongly about. And it'll be interesting to see what they do with Capellan and Backe.
