Astros Offer Deals to Lee and Soriano

The Houston Chronicle reports that the Astros have offered multi-year deals to Alfonso Soriano and Carlos Lee.  Houston has been viewed by many as the frontrunner for El Caballo, but I hadn’t heard anything about their interest in Soriano. 

The article also notes that the Astros "are in serious discussions" with Woody Williams.  I suppose if they aren’t counting on getting Roger Clemens back for another year, they may feel the need to add a different 40 year old in the rotation.
