    Is the "Lo" pronounced like Lopez or Lollipop?

    Yeah- I was more thinking about it from the standpoint of the prospect. He played in 7 seasons. He got a real pension. He made it through arbitration which means 8 figure earnings now. He can come back to reunions, sign cards, go on tv or radio shows if he wants etc. he gets a pretty decent retirement package. Thats all pretty cool stuff.

    Maybe, but why wait to do that?

    Deciding on whether he goes to IL or just needs a day or 2 would be the reason to wait regarding Chas. I did see that Chas's hamstring still is bothering him.

    I get that. There has to be a move regardless, so it all seems a bit odd to me. I know the Astros always play most things close to the vest but damn. Seems like something would have given by now.

    And he took 7 years off and came back as a pitcher appearing in 3 games (starting 1).

    Only allowed 1 run in 10.1 innings, 7 hits 0 BB and 6 Ks

    Very respectable

    Anyone know why that didn't continue?

    So they were 100% trying to work out a larger deal and planned on making a smaller move if that fell through.

    No way they waited this long to put Kessinger on the IR while announcing ahead of time Loperfido was coming up.

    I'm talking about Astros signings. I want every other team to have a Rendon signing.

    Batting title, gold glove, and unexpected gran
    Kuhnel had no business even being on a AAA roster.
