Astros almost got Mike Lowell

The Astros came this close to nabbing Mike Lowell from the Red Sox, WTVG Toledo says.

One team that looked at Lowell was Houston, whose new manager is former Red Sox bench coach Brad Mills, but the Astros decided that he was too great a question mark to play third base, according to one source.

Hm. Mike Lowell. Or Pedro Feliz. Are you kidding me.

Im glad we didn't get Lowell. I'd much rather see Johnson out there than Lowell at this stage. Of course signing Feliz retards that whole statement. I don't think Chris Johnson is the answer, nor will he ever be IMO, but you don't have to pay him much and there's always the possibility he "gets it" like he was playing in spring training last year. I don't think that will ever happen, but its a cheaper possibility.
