    So much for "Astros/Crane/Luhnow wouldn't touch him with a 10-foot pole", ha.

    Truly shocked. Have to think the Astros did their homework.

    That's verrry interesting.

    He must be rusty as hell. When is his suspension over?

    I'm not going to boycott the team or some stupid **** like that, but I'm not going to defend this **** either. Yuck.

    Apparently he should have hit someone else.

    Wow. Love him as a closer. Hope they did their homework on the suspension.

    He’s been in the minors the last week or so and has been dominant.

    Very very surprised. I’m gonna give Luhnow the benefit of the doubt that they’ve done the legwork on both his legal status and his attitude, and that the price is right.

    I'm truly shocked. I'm really not sure how to feel about this.

    Thought he was an option but never thought they’d make the move. Wonder if they consulted with vets in locker room. I’m sure they did their homework otherwise.

    Not shocking at all. Felt Giles had pitched his last game with the Astros

    Osuna has two more years of arbitration I believe. He'll be here a while.
