Would someone PLEASE tell me what in the heck the Astros are doing? Isn't it just a bit early to go into panic signing mode??
Come on Ed!!!.......If you want us to believe the Astros are trying to improve make a real move. Show me a starter that hasn't seen a surgeons knife. Show me a veteran leaving for serious prospects. Stop the dog and pony show.....it makes you look stupid and I know (hope) you're not.
They saved 5 million by replacing Valverde and Hawkins with Lindstrom and Lyon......then they light that on fire by bringing in Pedro Feliz??? Feliz is a defensive upgrade but not enough on the offensive side to make that worthwhile.
Here we go again with the Astros making moves to JUST make moves. If they think they're fooling us they are sadly mistaken. Lyons and Lindstrom are not an upgrade over Valverde and Hawkins and the 15 million over three years given to Lyon could have gone towards signing a starting pitcher. You already had Fulchino who has shown some ability to set up in the 8th so once again wasted money.
