Same as it has always been

Working out at Rice while drawing interest from multiple teams.

I'm guessing he doesn't sign anywhere until after the draft.

Realistically if you signed Keuchel today, what's the earliest you could put him out there and expect him to be in game shape as a starter? May 1? He's cost himself 1/6 of the season. And 1/6 of his value this season.

The reports out there are that his "price is dropping" (shocking!) and he's willing to do a one year deal, but that he still wants more than the $17.9M QO we offered him.

IMO, lotta pride getting in his way there & if he ends up settling for less than we offered him it's egg on the face for both him and Boras. I wonder if:

1. We would still sign him for the prorated portion of that or if he'd have to take less?

2. He will end up signing for a decent amount, but after the draft where a team won't have to give up a pick...because the prorated part of 1 yr/18M without a pick seems like a pretty decent deal.

I hope James doesn't start falling into the Ken Giles syndrome.

Just bc you throw hard doesn't mean you can just pump belt high fast balls over the heart of the plate consistently

MLB hitters will hit it

The offense has got work to do. So does the bullpen.

Correa seems pretty bad at sacrificing the players home, hope that extra run we should have had doesn't come back to bite us

Dang it, Brantley. You could've found your way into my Astros heart & you missed that opportunity.

I still love that Reddick always uses 2 hands to catch routine fly balls. Doesn't matter if it is the dog days of summer or October, it's a great habit

Good thing he wasn't aware of how high leverage that AB was, don't know how he could have handled the stress knowing it was the only opportunity to earn your affection

Diaz report card:

First inning opposite field dingers at home - A+
Throwing from SS to 1B - D
Knowing where to stand on relays - F

The suckiest part is the 2-out runs. Those have been a bummer today.

Blum had mentioned earlier the hardest part about learning first is knowing where to go on the different relays.

Stassi sucks
