    Crane, Luhnow and company do not disappoint.

    I never expected it could be this good.

    Astros are without question a top notch organization.

    Love this, but Cole isn't going to resign. Not with Boras as his money guy. We're about to be maxed out and this doesnt even include next years draft and arbitrations. So freaking glad to have Verlander here though to mentor Whitley and all of the younger pitchers. That is invaluable.

    Boras doesn't run the show for his clients unless they tell him to go chase the payday. If Cole wants to be in Houston, he'll tell Boras to make it happen just like Altuve did.

    Not sure the Stros can afford Cole now anyway, but very happy to lock up Verlander.

    Exactly. Can't be more pleased with our offseason now. Bregs, Pressley and Verlander locked up. Brantley, Diaz and Chiri added.

    They will trade for a Cole replacement.

    The way Springer’s performed the last two playoffs, he would probably be my top priority

    Rosenthal said the Astros are in talks to resign Cole as well just yesterday. Let’s see what happens.

    Cole already refuted that and said they have not had any negotiations.

    Pretty sure he's saying they will trade for a good starter - either at the deadline or in the offseason - who has some club control.

    While it’s not official yet, and other sources haven’t come out reporting it, it’s hard to believe Feinsand would tweet this out if the talks weren’t very seriously progressing towards an extension.
