    Love it for him! Seems a little painful for lateral defense. At some point, would love to see what his arm looks like in the outfield.

    Crane opening up that wallet!

    Glad he kept the Franchise here and have him retire as an Astro.

    Great deal. Presptious to say he'll be here for life though.

    This should help decrease luxury tax this season, right?

    He'll finish his career as the greatest Astro in franchise history, if he isn't already.

    So do the Astros sign one of Bregman or Tucker? Both or neither ? If you had to take one of the two, who would it be ? I would go all in on Tucker personally

    Just also keep Yordan an Astro for life and I’m happy. It’s important to have these legacy guys with Springer, Correa, and possibly Tucker, Bregman leaving in free agency. But those 2 are the only I’m sure will be in the hall of fame.

    He’s already earned every penny of that contract extension and he won’t play his first game of it til next year.
