Astros struggling

The Astros lost 2-0 today to Kip Wells and the Pirates, and have now been shut out two games in a row and three of their last four...

Their 75 runs scored on the season is the second-lowest in the N.L.

While Berkman's return should help matters, the Houston offense is absolutely anemic right now, which might revive the Soriano-to-Houston rumors.

The problem is that Craig Biggio is actually hitting right now, meaning that to incorporate Soriano into the lineup, the Astros would probably have to move Jason Lane or Lance Berkman (upon his return) to centerfield, and either put Biggio back in the outfield (which he doesn't want to do), or stick Soriano out there (which he doesn't want to do).
