As we move closer to spring training and the start of the 2011 season, teams are still looking at free agents and how they might be able to help their team.
This past week, Vernon Wells was traded, Manny Ramirez and Johnny Damon reunited in Tampa Bay, and it looks like Vlad is on his way to Baltimore. There are still some quality free agents looking for homes and some of these players could help the Astros this season.
The Astros' weakest areas heading into the 2011 season are the fifth spot in the rotation, the bullpen and the middle infield. These free agents could help strengthen those areas and give the Astros a better shot to be competitive this season.
