Morgan Ensberg and the Astros exchanged arbitration figures yesterday.
Morgan wants 4.2 mill.
The Astros want to pay him 3.4 mill.
Mark Texiera (1st base) got 2 years at 15.4 mill – and Tex don’t hit worth a lick out of the Ballpark.
Marcus Giles got 3.8 mill and his numbers weren’t near as good as Ensberg’s.
I think that Mo would be most likely to get the higher figure at a hearing, and I’ll bet that the Organization will settle. I thought they might could be thinking of more than a 1 year contract, but I see Lidge only got 1 year, and
I’ll bet at this point that Mo will also only get 1 year. If he has another year like last year, he might could get a good 8 – 10 mill next year.
And so far, all quiet along the Baggy Front….
