    Glad he's sticking around and not testing the market. With that said it's the largest for a non closer so not sure if he would have gotten more. Only thing is he can't close(unless Osuna pulls a Giles) but I'm sure he's fine with that with all that money.

    This is a critically important move by Luhnow and company. Rock-solid extension for one our most important impending FAs.

    When I think of Ryan Pressley I still think of one of the parade of gas cans in the Memorial Day Miracle game.

    The Astros must think they fixed him for good.

    Fair deal for both sides. I like it. Core bullpen piece for an amount that won’t impact any other meaningful moves. Word is they are working to extend Bregman now.

    Awesome. I've been calling for that since the beginning of the offseason. I sort of wanted to tear up his contract this year and give him 5 million bucks this year and lower the aav going forward.

    Seriously. Bregman, Correa, Springer, Altuve, Brantley for at least 2 more seasons. Osuna and and Pressley at the back of the pen. If we can keep the rotation strong, we'll continue be in the hunt.

    The Astros didn't acquire him until late July

    Love the fact that there’s another option at the end that can best based upon performance for 2022. That should lock up all of the years you’d want to have locked up.
