    I would have to go with the team Astros Daily put together with one exception. Although I loved watching Cesar Cedeno play, and he was a great player in a Houston uniform, but I'd have to give Lance Berkman the nod in the starting outfield over Cesar, and put Cesar in the reserve outfield slot. Berkman has been more consistent throughout his career than Cedeno.

    Schilling
    Schilling and Johnson weren't with the Astros long enough. I would put J.R Richard and Larry Dierker ahead of them.

    His career numbers don't shine, and he isn't considered by some to be a "bleeding orange" Astro, but he really did a job while he was on the team.
    I'd take the '86 Mike Scott in a game 7...no way in the world the Mets beat Scott and the Astros in the dome for game 7...then it would've been
    RED SOX vs. ASTROS

    *If players would need to meet a criteria of "minimum games started in Astros uniform", that would disqualify Thon, Morgan, and J.R. Richard.
    Morgan's post-season and clutch numbers starts him ahead of Biggio, who had below average post-season numbers.

    To determine an all-time team there should be an opportunity to select the all-time starting rotation- not just one starter.

    Daryl Kile can be added to the All-Tragic Team as well.

    I voted for one player at each position which was easy for me until Berkman. He gets left off my list because I don't consider him an OF (he wasn't great at it anyways) and he won't beat out Bagwell at 1st.

    1B: Bagwell
    2B: Biggio
    3B: Caminiti
    SS: Thon
    C: Ausmus
    OF: Cruz
    OF: Cedeno
    OF: Wynn
    SP: Ryan
    RP: Wagner

    You can add Jim Umbricht (cancer), Don Wilson ('suicide') and Jay Dahl (auto accident) to that list as well.

    Wheeler, primarily setup, is on the list. Wagner, primarily a closer, is on the list. Lidge, who has done both, is on the list.

    Maybe I screwed up, but the way the poll is set right now, you can vote for multiple players.

    I voted:
    SP: Ryan, Scott, Oswalt, Dierker, Clemens, and Richard.

    1B: Bagwell (easy)

    2B: Biggio (easy)

    3B: Caminiti (easy for me, at least)

    SS: Everett (his defense is taken for granted far too often)

    C: Ashby (NOT easy - very hard to vote Ash over Ausmus!)

    OF: Wynn, Berkman, Cruz

    Bench: Lamb, Palmeiro

    RP: Wagner, Lidge, Wheeler
