1981 The Reds swap third baseman Ray Knight to the Astros for outfielder Cesar Cedeno. The trade will help both clubs, with each player spending at least 2+ years in a productive role with his new team.
2002 After spending the previous six seasons with the Giants, the 2000 National League MVP Jeff Kent (.313, 37, 108) signs an $18.2 million, two-year contract with the Astros. The 34 year-old Texas resident's presence on the team moves four-time second base Gold Glove winner Craig Biggio to the outfield.
2008 The Astros sign free-agent Aaron Boone (.241, 6, 28) to a $750,000, one-year contract deal. The former National infielder, who will share third base with Geoff Blum and Chris Johnson, fills the void created when the team didn't tender Ty Wigginton a contract as a means of cutting the payroll, making the infielder a free agent.
