    Astros sign Contreras, Conforto and JV. Win 115 games and another WS. Javier wins CY Young and Bregman MVP.

    He seemed to come around at the end of last season, too. I think he could have a very strong 2023 if given an opportunity.

    Jake who swung out of his shoes, Helmut flying around his head and closing his eyes during his swing Meyers, was coming around?

    He was coming around in Sugar Land. By the time he was swinging well, it was too late to bring him back up.

    Yes.

    He was 5 for 11 the last few games of the season after he was called back up.

    I don't know why they can't get him a helmet that stays on.

    I'm down to Contreras and Nimmo and holding out hope for Brantley if healthy. None of the other outfield options appeal to me over in house options. If you are average, you can't make this team better.

    Astros sign Judge to a one year contract for league minimum so he can win a WS, then goes back to the Yankees for 330M and a Trout career, BUT with a WS under his belt. Meyers covers DH and has a 5 WAR. McCormick learns to catch.

    Well, just about all these other ideas are kind of, or sort of landish; but this one, this is outlandish. Well done, sir. Well done.

    (I’d probably roll the dice, buy a Judge jersey, and hope he cuts down on his Ks enough to improve as a hitter to move up in the order. Otherwise, he’s at risk of Dusty platooning him, by say May 1st).

    Astros agree in principle with Bellinger but at the last second he says he's quitting baseball and starting up a Grateful Dead cover band.

    Astros sign Bellinger to more dollars than what have been rumored but that deal includes Bellinger telling the media about the Dodgers sign stealing scheme. Astros then cut Bellinger and thank him for his service.

    Ballinger to the Cubs for 17.5 million, that's outlandish!

    The Houston Astros sign Carlos Correa to play Centerfield.

    As you were.

    Ninmo will sign an 8 year deal, all but guaranteeing it will be a disaster.

    The Mets will have a 400 mil payroll for 2023.

    The Mets will have the highest payroll in baseball and not make the playoffs. Yankees will not make the playoffs either.

    Astros miss the playoffs in 23.
