Forget everything I just wrote. The Astros, perhaps to placate Jeff Kent, are moving Biggio to left field according to this report from the AP:
Kent will play second base with the Astros, Hunsicker said. Biggio, a four-time Gold Glove winner, will shift to the outfield. Biggio began his career as a catcher.
``He's already made one position change that didn't turn out too bad,'' said Hunsicker, who hasn't had a chance to speak with Biggio about the move to the outfield.
I think it's insane myself. Biggio would be among the worst starting left fielders offensively in baseball, unless he has a big comeback from the past season (I guess no matter what happens the Astros are relying on that). And they have not even broached the subject with Biggio. Oh, brother!
