    Is there anyone other than Sale that would be huge?

    By this time next week, they'll be out of the race regardless if they make trades.

    Kyle Tucker+Preston Tucker+Colin Moran+Daz Cameron+Joe Musgrove+AJ Reed for Mike Trout.

    Alex Bregman+Johnathan Singleton+Derek Fisher+Paulino+Whitley for Chis Sale.

    Mostly guts the system but we get top end talent. That is what we need to be able to break through and win the WS.

    LAA would laugh at that offer. We do not have enough minor league talent to add both Trout and Sale. It would require giving up Springer and LMJ, at the least.

    The astros are going to trade themselves into a losing franchise with no minor league talent.


    I wish, wish, wish, the astros still had Vincent Velasquez. You never, ever should trade top pitching talent, because from year to year you don't know which pitchers are going to drop off the map.

    Thinking mchugh and dkeuchel were the next glavine and greg maddox got them into trouble, in the first place.

    Hell, trading villar wasn't a great move either.

    The quoted tweet quite clearly states Rosenthal said it on MLB Network.

    You should find a different sport to follow.

    I still think it will end up being Chris Archer or Jake Odorizzi.

    The astros are burning through their farm system at record rates. And I for one don't believe the astros have the pitching to win it this year, even with sale.

    If this is the 25 man roster on Aug 31, I don't care if there's a single player left in the minor leagues:

    RF Springer
    LF Bregman
    2B Altuve
    SS Correa
    C Lucroy
    3B Gurriel
    1B Reed
    DH Gattis
    CF Rasmus
    Bench: Marwin, Marisnick, ???
    Rotation: Archer, Keuchel, McCullers, McHugh, ???
    Bullpen: ???, ???, ???, ???, Sipp, Harris, Gregerson, Giles

    Looking like Gallo and either Mendez or Ortiz for Lucroy. That's the equivalent of Reed and either Musgrove, Paulino, or Martes. Huge cost but damnit I will hate to see Lucroy in Dallas.

    I would bust a nut if the Astros somehow got Sale.

    Plus a few more pieces. Possibly Jefferies and one of their starters may be involved, which would be awesome in the gutting the Rangers system. That's really all I care about. Then Hamels needing Tommy John, Lucroy not meshing with the pitchers and life will be grand!
