    Obviously a move that would not be made unless Houston were acquiring someone they expect to play CF.

    I thought Straw was good at baseball now.

    Was thinking the same thing. Maton is not someone you bring in and just call it a day. Especially since Myles has been really solid

    We were just starting to like him. Defense and base stealing much improved lately.

    You don't trade Straw for an arm that is no better than the Bielaks and Raleys of the world unless you're opening up a spot and not for Chazzy Fizz either.

    Maton is WAY better than Bielak and probably significantly better than Raley, although Raley is a good RP who has had bad luck. Maton is a Strom-effect candidate and either way strikes a ton of guys out.

    I think there is something big coming but then again, Chas is as good as Straw was.
