Astros Sunday lineup raises questions

If you were part of the more than 43,000 that packed Minute Maid Park Sunday, you probably didn't appreciate the lineup Cecil Cooper sent out. Three starters were out of the lineup, including Lance Berkman. Considering how the Astros jacked up the prices for the Yankees series, the fans didn't get their money's worth. A lot of fathers taking their kids to the ballpark on Father's Day left disappointed and it wasn't just because of the way the Astros played. The Yankees completed the three game sweep with a 13-0 shellacking.

Astros Manager Cecil Cooper said he was totally embarrassed and starting pitcher Roy Oswalt wasn't exactly happy about the lineup.

"We didn't have the originals in there," said Oswalt. "We had three of the starters out and three other guys in there, so I don't know."

The Astros may have more problems than just their losing streak.
