While we are throwing out names, how about Stroman. Young, good, controllable and should be available.


And affordable

He's at the top of my wishlist. That's be a great get!

Wonder what the motive is here for these moves? Round Rock and Corpus are both at home this week so it's not a distance thing.

I'm sure it has been discussed already, but Stroman+Smoak in a trade seems likely. Smoak is in the final year of his deal and would do well in this lineup. He walks alot because the Jays lineup isn't strong, he will see a lot more pitches in a fully healthy Astros lineup.

This is also likely the only way Gurriel would be traded, as he would be on the same team as Lourdes. I like other 1B more in the market, but Smoak would essentially be a throw in if we traded for Stroman.

There is the answer. Guess that means Altuve won't be going to Iowa on Wednesday and will be activated.

Playing in a National League park with Cincinnati, we have our pitchers batting.

Wade Miley has been pretty decent for a pitcher over his career.

.155 (37 hits in 239 AB's), 1 HR, 12 RBI, 27 sacrifices

only strikes out in 24% of his plate appearances

Or given Tyler's "skills" (6.75 ERA in 3 appearances) on the mound, have we been comparing him to the wrong group of peers all this time?

I was just gonna say that Castillo may be tough tonight.

And the last thing we need is a fckin rain delay that turns into a BP day.

I love outside baseball but not in the rain and not when it's 95 degrees.

You could see the white of the line between the bag and his foot. How the heck did NYC overturn that? Why is MLB so bad at review?.

Definitely don't like Minnesota getting Bumgarner.

Seems like every year our opponents add people like crazy while we take a quieter approach. So far it's generally turned out well for us.


How does one get Justin Verlander quietly?

We made some pretty big moves in 15 and 17. We tried to get Harper last year and were damn close. We've also been down to the wire for Britton and made a big effort for Hamels & Lucroy.


Well, Verlander acquisition was overshadowed by Harvey. I don't think I heard about it til mid-day the next day at least,, bigger things going on in town, lol

Astros just bought out Paulino's contract from the Skeeters.

His pitched pretty well for them.
