    You got a new DH I think. Power hitter, liability in the outfield.

          The Astros needed starting pitching.

          • Dodgers failed to address their horrible bullpen. That means, at best; they can hope to lose a third WS in a row. I doubt they get that far.

                With the trade deadline now over, here is a list of expected free agents this winter.

                I've come up with a theme:



                I count 19 under 30 years old and of that 19 about half are 29.

                Rendon and Bumgarner 30 and will be coveted. Cole is 29, same.
                It is no coincidence that the growth of modern tyrants has in every case been heralded by the growth of prejudice.

                • Inside the Zack Greinke deal: 24 hours that rocked the MLB trade deadline

                  How good is Astros' rotation with Zack Greinke? Houston trio could accomplish feat not seen in nearly a century

                  Astros got Diamondbacks to kick in cash ($53 mill) towards Greinke's remaining contract ($77 mill). Their payroll is now the 6th highest in BB at $168 million after the trade, and had room to get him. Greinke gets $24 million a year through 2021. Next year's payroll is $148 million but with these Free Agents 2020 Houston Astros Free Agents Cole's market value is estimated at $28 mill per year. Will Harris is a free agent.


                  The Greinke Trade Gives The Diamondbacks Needed Cash, Depth

                  Both teams are winners.

                  • Angels DFA'd Lucroy... days after multiple teams inquired about trading for him. Typical, they could have just kicked the tires on ANY lefty reliever but instead just give him away for free....

                      I see a ton of over valued names on this list. I predict we will hear more on collusion by the owners talk when most of these names sit idle.

                      • When it rains it pours,... Simba and two more pitchers head to the IL. This team has to have set a record for starters getting hurt over the last five years. It’s literally every starting pitcher they’ve had over that time span, or at least feels like it

                        • Newly acquired Astros pitcher who is their fifth starter combined with their bullpen last night for a no-hitter. Verlander, Greinke, Cole, and Miley are their scheduled pitchers for the next four games. They are a combined 47-17. Three have ERAs less than 3 and the fourth has an ERA of 3.05.

                            • The KC Royals reportedly are being sold for $1 billion to an ownership group headed by a KC businessman, who has a 30% stake with another ownership group in the Cleveland Indians. He'll need to sell his shares for the deal to be completed.

                                That's absolutely crazy. If a sport was in need of new ownership blood, however, baseball is it.

                                    David Glass pocketed the revenue sharing from the big market teams vs investing it back into his team. I believe the Twins owner has done the same over the years. You can’t cry over big market teams “buying” championships when you’re pocketing the subsidy they’re being forced to pay. He did the Royals a favor by selling the team assuming the new owner will try to build a winner.

                                      I wouldn’t mind them contracting a few teams that have no chance to ever field a winner. I don’t see organizations like the Pirates & Orioles ever winning consistently. Thin the herd.

                                      • If you are a starter and a free agent, how do you not want to play for the Astros right now?

                                          Yet they're both historic franchises who have won titles and the Pirates used to be really, really good. I don't disagree with your general thought but you picked two bad examples.

                                                I'd say Pete Alonso has the NL wrapped up.

                                                      With A's blowout of the Astros, the A's improved their record to 85-60, making it mathematically impossible for the Angels to reach the last wild card spot since they already have 78 losses, meaning 84 is the highest amount of wins they can finish with on the season.

And if they resign Donaldson move Acuna to right and Riley in left man this team will have some fire power.
