    ...or the "convert a starter to long relief" market.

    First on the list. Stud Closer
    Second on the list. Stud middle reliever
    Third on the list. A hammer for a DH

    Fourth: A card to Cole Hammels saying "Denying a trade to Houston was the best decision you ever made eh?"

    I vote Beltran for Cora’s replacement as bench coach. Relief and a closer would be good too I guess

    A coach in some capacity, certainly.

    Is he retiring? Maybe he should but I thought I read somewhere he wants to play another year. If he does hopefully he would re-sign for a small deal. He definitely has made a huge impact in the clubhouse... just listen to Correa in the postgame.

    Shohei Otani to Houston!

    We need a token Asian guy again now that half of the baseball world thinks Houston is racist.

    Who are the minor league players most poised to make the active roster next season? Whitley and Tucker, or are they more likely mid season call ups?

    Was Gregerson our best pitcher in the postseason? Let's promote him back to being our closer!

    TANDEM TAKEOVER!

    McCullers/Peacock
    Kuechel/ Devenski
    Verlander
    McHugh Whitley


    just kidding.

    Would love to see morton as the closer though. His stuff was electric in the 1st inning.
