    I had to double-check to see if it wasn't some Twitter Blue checkmarked account...

    Thread created so it doesn't get buried in the main offseason thread.

    Abreu is still a beast at the plate. Our lineup going to be nuts again.

    Gotta see the number, but happy to have the bat we needed. He should fit in well.

    Nice.

    Now bring back JV, re-sign Yuli and Brantley, and have Leon compete for CF.

    Awesome! He’s the perfect fit for the 6 hole in Houston’s lineup. Looks to be 3 years, so anything less than $55M is a good deal. Anything over $60M is risky.

    How can they do this when they don't have a GM and there's so much dysfunction?:D

    Hopefully JV sees this as a sign of commitment to winning and not just status quo bring back the same people. Other teams are going to get better next year, we also need to get better than we were last year. Great move in the right direction.

    Maybe Crane would be willing to dip into the LT threshold for JV, but I think that ship has sailed.

    Astros win the WS. continue to sign a supporting cast of players to get better and stay in contention. Unlike a cheap rockets owner to signs scrubs and scrapes the bottom of the barrel and expect to contend

    Very excited about this addition! We could not stand pat this offseason and expect to win it all again. This move makes us better. Great fit. Let's hope the contract isn't absurd.
