    What is this love for Norris? The guy is complete ****, especially at the plate. We already have Gomez, Castro, Gattis and Rasmus stinking it up most of the time. No need for another crap bat.

    does beltran have a no trade? it would be funny if he turned us down. Lucroy can play first base also.

    Thank god they are not paying for marginal upgrades.

    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr"><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Astros?src=hash">#Astros</a> are also dabbling in starter market, but it's largely picked over.

    From a Brewers site that I frequent (I grew up in Wisconsin)

    Any chance that Houston jumps in here at the last minute and makes us an offer we can't refuse:

    Houston gets Luc and Guerra

    Brewers get Reed, Musgrove, M. Sierra and Franklin Perez

    Thoughts?

    @jaysonst A source who said yesterday the chances of Chris Sale getting dealt were under 5 percent says again this morning "under 5 percent"

    seems like more than enough--Guerra has only shown something this year. The Rangers are sticking at Gallo and not including another big name, according to recent reports. Maybe they'll add someone lesser.

    I think that's a fair deal for both sides although I'd rather get Will Smith than Guerra. It'd be painful for me since Sierra and Perez are two of my favorite prospects and I think they're underrated.

    Yes, Sierra showing that much power at 18 is promising for his future. His BB/K split is okay for a young raw player that I assume he will improve upon pitch selection as he gets older. Still could be 4 or 5 years away and who knows what position some of these guys end up. If he helps seal a deal for someone the Astros covet he must be included.
