Quote:

The Best Possible Move for Every American League Team Before the Trade Deadline

Houston Astros (5733, first place in AL West) Trade for Pirates RHP Chris Stratton

Stratton is as far from a big name as you can get, and he's already on his second team of 2019. But after an awful start with the Angels, he's been excellent in relief for Pittsburgh, allowing just six runs in 17 1/3 innings with two walks and 15 strikeouts. And his arsenal makes him a good fit for Houston: His curveball has an average spin rate of 3,094 rpm, which ranks fourth highest in the majors, and the Astros are all about pitchers who can make a breaking ball tumble.

Just be patient. What do you think will happen when Correa and Diaz come back?

Anyone going to the game tonight? Shane Smith & The Saints are doing the National Anthem.
Headed to tonight's game and tomorrow's. So far i'm 0-3 on the season with the Astros having a combined 10 hits in those 3 games. So if we suck again you can blame me and I'll forfeit the season.

I think at this point Correa at 7 with Reddick/Chirinos 8/9 is perfect. Hope he's ready, soon.

Hinch updated on Correa, Diaz, Smith and Peacock.

Correa and Diaz will both start rehab assignments early next week. Correa is a couple of days behind Diaz.

Joe Smith has complete a typical spring training regiment. Being looked at over the weekend and could come back early next week

Peacock is in consideration to start Monday. Will through a bull pen tomorrow and get looked at after.

Correa will go 1-4 with a HR and Diaz will go 2-4 with a double and Hinch will find a reason to sit one of them the next game.

Honestly kind of surprised were favored in this game
I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

Correa's history in coming back from DL the past two seasons has been very slow progress.

Boyd is not that good. Nice piece but he's not worth Tucker.

Never had a broken rib, but I can't imagine the twisting nature of swinging a bat would feel too good right after healing.

Are Reddick and Brantley both under contract next year? What is the earliest that we have an opening in the OF?

Assuming we lock up George

Yes to both. 2021 unless we trade Reddick

With Yordan, for now, planned as an occasional OF there is still no room for Tucker. Would you rather have him or Reddick? Which one could bring back a higher value in trade?

I remember you were at the JV game. That was miserable. Astros sucked it up and I underdressed and froze my balls off. Hoping for a better result tomorrow...

You are right he's not that old my mistake. Just feels like he's been pitching for a long time.

If he can get it down to one game that's a win. JV didn't do him any favors by stirring the league office about balls. This is the same as targeting, make a point that we take player safety seriously. Catchers should have to keep their mask on if we are worried about their safety.

Also, trade Tucker, he is going to average at the major league level. That's based solely on him looking like a deer in the headlights last year

Because no one looks bad when they first get called up, goes back down, and then plays well in their second stint.... (looking at Trout and Judge)

If you could guarantee Tucker would pay like Trout Judge, I'd trade Reddick today.
