Direct from the Astros:  Mouton will bat 1st, Finley 2nd, Biggio 3rd,
Bagwell 4th, Gonzalez 5th, Caminiti 6th, Servais 7th, Cedeno 8th.

The way things look right now, Servais will get a lot more time behind
the plate than Taubensee.  Servais has outhit Taubensee in ST and has
taken a much more aggressive role in working with the pitching staff.
Taubensee appears to be fading into the woodwork.  Add to this the
impressive spring of 3rd catcher Tony Eusebio (unfortunately he bats RH
like Servais).  IMO, Servais and Eusebio (also great defensively) will
catch most of the time and Taubensee might only see action as a LH pinch
hitter and late inning defensive replacement (best arm of the three).

Tucker will not make the roster and, since he is out of options, will
probably be claimed by another organization when the Astros try to outright
him to Tuscon.

Neither Mota nor Petagine will make the roster -- they'll both go to AAA.

Add Eusebio to the backup list and you've got your positional roster.

Shane Reynolds will make the team before Osuna does.  Expect Brian Williams
to be the 5th starter, with a bullpen of Mitch, Edens, Todd Jones, Shane
Reynolds, and Mike Hampton.  Jean will start at AAA and be recalled if
Brian Williams doesn't cut it or one of the other SPs are injured/traded
(or go to the pen with Mike Hampton going into the rotation).
