    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    Would not mind a 2 year 30-34 mil deal to Beltran. Would be easy to get out of if need be next year

    Those tweets make it seem the dye has been cast but their just rumors so it's all a mute point as of yet.

    Can the Astros get both CB and EE? That would be a hoot.

    Can they? Yes.. But that is a lot of money, and what do we do with Gattis? I would include him in a trade for Sale at that point, along with any prospect they wanted. We would win anything.

    I think signing Aoki means no Beltran. Beltran would be their 10th everyday hitter (not including Aoki) and for $15M+/yr it's probably a luxury Houston shouldn't afford.

    Could always trade someone for an ace.

    Can someone verify this? Signing Edwin costs us a 1st rounder but Beltran does not?

    That is correct. Beltran wouldn't cost us a pick because he was traded mid-season last year. Signing EE on the other hand, would cost us our 1st rounder.
