    Looks like we claimed Aoki off waivers. Lunhow also said that decisions on options for Neshek and Gattis will be announced tomorrow.

    I'm guessing Neshek is sent packing and Gattis' option is picked up

    Neshek is still a solid bullpen arm and could provide value in a trade next season, which offsets the cost of his option. I'm betting both options are exercised.

    The Aoki move looks to me like Zobrist envy.

    Yeah I think Neshek will be back too. I hope so at least, he's mostly been good and the contract isn't too bad.

    I'm fine with this. Not a bad backup catcher along with his DH role. I'm sure his defense will improve with a spring training under his belt.

    Astros have picked up the 2017 option for C/DH Evan Gattis. "I'm excited to be back," he said. He'll make $5.2 million next year.

    If we're going to run with Aoki as the every day LF I think that's a really bad move. Fowler's been much better defensively in Chicago, but a lot of that can be attributed to the rest of the OF being much more athletic. His numbers were pretty atrocious both in Colorado and Houston. But if the plan for Aoki is trade bait or a 4th OF, I'm all in on it. Fowler is a huge upgrade at the plate and we could really use his OBP skills.

    Also, as I recall it, the bad blood was because we wanted to play him in LF instead of CF. That may not be an issue this time around, since he's not going to be as concerned about building value for free agency. If we could nab Fowler on a 4/60 or maybe even as high as 4/70 deal I'd be for it. I'd be much more excited about bringing Dex back than going after Red$#@!.

    Phillies acquire reliever Pat Neshek from the Astros for PTBNL or cash.

    What do yall think happens with Marisnick now that Aioki is signed? If Rasmus is on his way out that could open up the 4th spot for him. If they sign another outfielder, such as Fowler, then i got to think Jakes gone.

    Unless he is a significant piece of a trade, Marisnick will be on the 25 man roster. Assuming they acquire a star level OF, Marisnick makes a lot of sense as the 4th OF or in a LF platoon with Aoki.

    Aoki's WAR numbers 2.3, 1.5, 2.2, 1.4, 1.2

    Not bad. Gives the Astros some flexibility.

    So now we have 3 of the 5 OFs for next year with Springer, Marisnick, and Aoki.

    Because everyone needs a laugh today:


    Free agent outfielder Carlos Gomez will be seeking a long multiyear deal — perhaps even five years — on the free-agent market despite an uncharacteristically rocky 2016 season.

    Gomez’ agent Scott Boras declined to discuss specifics, but others suggested he will seek a very long deal.

    is that valbuena's agent ?

  • #344
    Is so valbuena for 3/21 in a heartbeat if tags is right that he will max at 7 or 8 and is unlikely to get 3 years. In a heartbeat. Nice insurance against injury, Reed/white sucking, left handed thump off the bench. I'd love him back unde those terms.

    I'm torn with Luis. When he's locked in, he's definitely a significant offensive piece, when he's not, he's unplayable. If he could give the Astros 140 games of a .816 OPS though, he would absolutely be worth 3/21-24.

    It sucks that Keuchel and LMJ are such question marks going into next year. I'd feel a lot better about making a run next year without having to add a major piece if we could pencil them in as true 1-2 starters all year.

    I think the chances that E^2 doesn't sign with the Red Sox or Yankees - or some other desperate franchise that gives him something stupid like the Pujols contract - are slim.

    So it'll be interesting to know if any of our truly valuable major league pieces are going to be talked about over the winter meetings, or if Springer and Bergman are virtually untouchable.

    I just don't see the Astros trading Springer, Altuve, Correa, or Bregman. That's your core. You build around them not trade them off, that's how you become the Pirates circa 1993-2012.

    Correa (and minor leaguers) for trout. Call the commissioner now.

    I agree, but if the White Sox would entertain a trade for Sale that has Springer as the major piece, I think you have to at least have the discussion.
