    I'll easily admit they missed on Bryant (but reportedly the cubs had appel ranked higher on their board than Bryant too :shrug: ), but I will defend the Correa pick to the death.

    Kid is something...

    Lets not go overboard here. I like him, but he also makes plenty of questionable in game decisions. His bullpen usage is all over the place, very much too attached to Lefty/Righty matchups, can come...

    He's not getting fire cause of his results. I mean it looks like the astros will be 20ish games better than last year. Apparently there is some kind of fundamental differences between him and Luhnow....

    They backed off because new medical info came to light. I don't blame the astros for moving on. My point was, how is it the astros fault for waiting too long to "restart negotiations" (your words)...

    Then you re accusing the astros team doctor (who has a sterling reputation in the medical field btw) of medical fraud and risking his liscense to try and help the astros save $1.5 million dollars. I...

    they made 3 separate offers on the deadline day, none of which even got a response. Aiken's camp cut off negotiations, not the astros

    pretty sure he was referring to time spent in the minors before call up, not time between call ups

    Or they went back up to 5 because if Aiken filed a grievance they can say "hey, we made better offers, they are the ones who quit negotiating.

    My point with the Schwarber comparison is that they said the astros should be punished cause they tried to manipulate the system to their advantage. Which is what pretty much all teams have been...

    You mean like how the cubs did by taking Schwarber as a below slot signing at #4 who many considered a reach based on pure talent? EVERYONE manipulates the cap system in the draft. The Astros found...

    First off, Nix told teams don't draft me unless you can meet my price or I'll go to college. Same with Marshall. Marshall was a flyer in the 21st round who fell due to signability concerns and never...

    That league leader is Josh Hader, who has been absolutely filthy nasty as a 20 year old lefty in that league. Really like what he's shown this year in that league and glad he got called up to AA...

    Brett Phillips is one of my favorite prospects in the Astros system and man has he broken out this year. He's a 5 tool player.

    In just over 100 games in the MWL as a 20 year old he posted a...

    Astros also get Frances Martes and Marlins get Kike Hernandez and Austin Wates.

    You'll love Kike. Can play anywhere on the diamond and great contact hitter with some pop.

    yes it is. Johnson was a 2nd round pick who hasn't played a minute, and Beverly was the starter on a 54 win playoff team and all 2nd team defense. I like Johnson, but that's way premature.

    So Ariza for 4 yr/32 mil. I like it honestly. It's front loaded and then de-escilates in value amount per year. He shoots the 3 well and has that perimeter D we lacked. Could play the 3 or the 2 for...

    Bosh has talked to the front office and his agent has basically ironed out an agreement. If he wants to go, it's set up to move very quickly.

    And really? You think that Bosh would pass up $88 mil...

    No. Beverly isn't going anywhere. If they need to dump more salary the most likely candidate is D-Mo since he counts about 1.5 mil against the cap and would be behind jones, bosh, and howard in the...
