Fort Worth Star-Telegram: 6th place

Another prediction, this time from the Star-Telegram - who has the Astros coming in last:

An already anemic offense now has to worry about first baseman Lance Berkman's balky left knee.

Although, hey, at least Tommy Manzella has a "chance to shine:"

The Astros' ability to produce from within has been awful, which is showing in the standings. But Manzella takes over for Miguel Tejada and showed he could hit at Triple A (.289, nine homers, 56 RBI). He has just five big league at-bats.
