Remember when we supposedly offered the most money for Andrew Miller? We should have offered more
My ideal starters:
He's been hitting really well in AAA. I say give him another shot, along with Singleton.
we should give kaz matsui and his anal fissures another crack at the lineup.
What's Jason Lane and Wesley Wright up to? Let's get the gang back together!
Lost the Asian death machine. Lost out on the playoffs. Coincidence?
Is Daryle Ward still on the Skeeters? Bring him back. One of my favorite underrated Astros.
we'll storm was clearly joking anyway
To be fair, adding back JD Martinez, Villar, Carter, and Grossman would theoretically improve the lineup dramatically.
OK I'm drinking the Kool-Aid with Snake D-
LF Laureano / Marisnick
RF Red$#@! ($40M/3yrs)
DH Trumbo ($40M/3yrs?)
C Gattis/Castro ($35M/3yrs)
Rotation: Sale, Keuchel, McHugh, McCullers, Musgrove
Bullpen: Devenski, Feliz, Sipp, Harris, Gregerson, Giles, Chapman ($90M/5yrs)
Laureano's start to the AFL couldn't have gone much better. He's hitting a cool .571 after the first week of play. Half of his eight hits have been for extra bases, he's swiped three more bases, walked a couple of times, and hasn't struck out yet. He's tied for first in the league in average, and is second in OPS. No one else has at least three extra-base hits and three stolen bases.
Would folks be ok trading for Sale if Bregman was part of the transaction?
If what we currently think is true (that Houston is looking at a pAyroll somewhere in the $100-120M range), then they won't be able to replace Bregman's value via free agency and still being able fill the holes at catcher and the outfield.

I'll pass on trading Bregman
C- Gattis/whoever- $6
1B- Reed/White- - $1
2b- Altuve- 5.5
SS- Correa- .5
3b- Bregman. 5
DH- Yuli- 12
RF- Red$#@!- 14
CF- Springer- 6
LF- Marisnick/Teo- 1
Dump Sipp and Sidearm dude ($#@! I'm blanking on his name) to anyone who will eat salary
Gregerson - 8
Awesome rookie from last year (see I'm really bad at names at 7:00 at the office .5
Bullpen- 14 million.
IF Reed or White hit, Gattis can stay healthy and productive for 110 games a year, LMJ can stay healthy and Keuchel bounces back that's a playoff team on about $90 million dollar budget.
I'd rather get Encarnacion, Red$#@! and Wienters (spot start Gattis) DH Reed and Gattis and role with Yuli at 1b. That probably costs $150 and it takes away a lot of question marks.
I'm ok with trading Bregman for Sale. Slide the Cuban into 3rd and go to war with
with Fiers as a long man and that's a pretty good rotation. And it's under club control everywhere for at least a few more years. Not my money. But I'm still waiting on the Correa, Reed and 3 or 4 minor leaguers for Trout and Pujols. Should be anytime now that Lunhow gets back to me to let me help him pitch that to the Angels.
The trade Bregman folks need to lay off the stupid
I think this is a symbolic picture of the Astros erasing Gomez from their psyche as well as in CF:
its all about pitching. we need to somehow build a dominant pitching staff thats deep.
The Astros voided their deal with Cionel Perez. They aren't saying why, but I'm guessing something is up with the physical.
that's going to make it real easy to sign these types of pitchers in the future
Cespedes reportedly will opt out of the remaining 2 years of his Mets deal and hit FA.
A man can dream?
Cespedes in left, Springer in center, and Red$#@! in right would be awesome
realistic would be hoping for red$#@!
when does free agency start? I looked for about 15 seconds and said $#@! it someone here will know.
Isn't it normally around the Sunday after the last WS game? so Nov 6th maybe?
Ashby not returning. There will be an all-new TV team it seems.
