    Something I've seen mentioned several times is Josh James's work ethic and desire to improve. I think he has a chance to be a star.

    I was absolutely impressed with him last season. He has the makeup and the talent to do big things. He could be one of the big surprise stories (to those outside of Houston) of the season...and might be our #3 starter by the end of the season.

    The guy thought he was going to be released in 2016 as a 23 year old in A ball..... and then explodes.

    If things work out well, we could be looking at a playoff rotation of Verlander, Cole, James, and Whitley. Not bad.

    Amazing what a good night of sleep will do for a person.

    The Astros broadcaster said Josh James had asthma issues and had trouble breathing, than after treatments from a breathing machine during bedtime. His asthma is under control and now his stamina and fitness became better the result of this. Great job by the Astros Medical and Doctor to help Josh James.
    Another example is James Harden had asthma issues as a child, he overcame this and now he is a Superstar.

    If Josh James is an All Star, the rest of the league is in deep, deep trouble.

    Now I remember the Broadcaster said he had trouble sleeping, and Josh was tired during the day.
    Breathing Machine helped him sleep better.

    Don’t forget Miley, that 1.23 era in 4 playoff starts last year was super impressive

    I looked it up because I remember them saying a teammate was complaining about his snoring. Indeed his roommate did complain and he ended up doing some research which resulted in him seeing a specialist. I wonder who the teammate was.
