Pudge to sign with Astros

The Astros have agreed to terms with catcher Pudge Rodriguez, one of the last of the remaining big-name free agents.

Rodriguez is expected to become Houston's everyday catcher. Playing time had been an issue in Rodriguez's talks with the Marlins, but with the Astros Rodriguez could catch as many as five games a week.

Houston's catchers have been awful this spring. The three catchers on the Astros' major-league roster have combined to go 8-for-50 with three RBIs. In just four games for Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic, Pudge is 9-for-15 with three doubles, two home runs and six RBIs.

The Astros had always made sense as a destination for Rodriguez, but until just the last few days, owner Drayton McLane had refused to commit the money. The Astros will likely keep Humberto Quintero as Rodriguez's backup. They still think that their catcher of the future will be Jason Castro, the club's top draft pick last June.

Rodriguez won't report to the Astros until Puerto Rico is done with the WBC.

If "the Cubs will be playing late into October" is your argument, we have nothing to talk about.  As much room as there is between the Cubs and the rest of the division right now, I still wouldn't wager a dime on the Cubs in the postseason until they actually do something.  100 years and counting...
