Buster Olney's Best-Case Scenarios

Buster Olney's new blog post has the best-case scenario for all 30 MLB teams. What's the Astros' best-case scenario? They are four-fold:

The three highest-paid guys on the team -- Roy Oswalt, Lance Berkman and Carlos Lee -- all produce in a way that is commensurate with their salaries ... Tommy Manzella steps in and does a solid job at shortstop, while providing representative offense ... Michael Bourn and Hunter Pence repeat their success of last year ... Brandon Lyon and Matt Lindstrom perform well at the back end of the bullpen.
