This Date in Astros History

Dec 23, 1999:Lefthander Mike Hampton and outfielder Derek Bell are traded to the Mets for pitcher Octavio Dotel and outfielder Roger Cedeno. It's primarily a financial move that causes the Astros to part with their 22-game winner. While Dotel would flourish, Cedeno would be gone after one season in Houston, batting .282 in 74 games.
May 7, 2000:Roger Cedeno's three-run homer keys a seven-run tenth inning that sinks the Dodgers, 14-8. Mitch Meluskey delivers five hits while Ken Caminiti and Richard Hidalgo go deep.
Aug 28, 2000:With a second-inning double off Glendon Rusch, Tony Eusebio sets a team-record 24-game hitting streak that began on July ninth. The reserve catcher goes 2-for-4 but the New York Mets come away with a 4-2 verdict. Houston's runs are on homers from Roger Cedeno and Richard Hidalgo.
Dec 11, 2000:Disappointments Mitch Meluskey, Roger Cedeno and Chris Holt are sent to the Detroit Tigers for catcher Brad Ausmus and pitchers Doug Brocail and Nelson Cruz. It's the second trip to Houston for both Ausmus and Brocail. Meluskey leaves with a .291 career average and 15 homers but questions arose about his abilities behind the plate. Holt leaves with a 21-42 record.
