Not liking Chris Carter's attitude so far. Last to show up, on the last possible day he can, and then tells the media that LF isn't his "ideal position??" Grow up and help the team out any way you can, Chris. And being the last to show up isn't the right way to do that...

Outfielder Chris Carter, who was acquired from the A’s in a Feb. 4 trade, arrived in camp Friday morning and was excited about the opportunity he has in Houston. He’s expected to get plenty of playing time, likely in left field.

“It was nice to come over here,” he said. “They’re in a rebuilding stage and it’s good to be a part of that.”

The soft-spoken Carter, who has been traded three times since he was drafted by the White Sox in 2005, was in his hometown of Las Vegas working out when he found out he was traded. He had to get his car shipped to Florida and wrap his mind around his first Spring Training in Florida.

“It’s good opportunity for me to play every day and help the team win and have a better season than we did last year,” he said.

Carter hit .239 with 16 homers and 39 RBIs in only 67 games for the A’s last year, getting a career-high 218 at-bat.

Carter seems alright to me.
