MLB.com’s Alyson Footer chased down a few Astros rumors today.
- The Astros’ chances at Miguel Tejada were graded a 2 on a scale of 1 to 10 yesterday. Now they’re at a 0. So, that’s that.
- Mark Loretta has until Friday to decide whether to accept the team’s offer of arbitration. He may not want to accept since he wants a full-time job. His agent contacted Ed Wade about that today. Dan O’Dowd suggested that the Astros "got him back."
