    Good pickup. Most likely cheap (prospect wise) and will bolster the depth of the 'pen.

    We'll see what they gave up for him... anything more than cash considerations, and I'd expect at least one person to find fault with the price.

    Nevertheless, he slots into the role currently abandoned by Feliz.

    Or Sipp. Already traded for a guy who does the same thing as Him in Frankie Liriano.

    He's a fine pick up. Better against lefties fwiw.

    This is a solid move. Even at his worst he's still better than half of what we are throwing out there in the rooster railroad yard right now.

    Can't hurt the bullpen can it? 1.80 ERA since traded to Chicago and he's been around the block. I'd like to think that come playoff time experience counts.

    Based on the reported returns, this is a good pick-up for the Astros.

    His peripherals over the last 3 years don't fill me with excitement, but we gave up very little. Maybe he has a hot stretch.

    LOL, this was a comment on the Astros' Facebook page:

    "I think I'm going to go over to clutchfans.net and see what those guys think. They are the real experts on Astros baseball!"
