I know this is not popular....but it makes sense

As unpopular as this will be; there is merit to this suggestion. Trading Bud Norris makes sense. Here's why. The Astros will be building toward legitimacy until approximately 2015. That seems like a long time and in baseball years and...it is. But this is exactly why it would make sense to move Bud Norris now. In 2015 Norris will be 30 years old. He will more than likely be the workhorse of this staff. In 2015 when the Astros should be finally making a run at the playoffs, we need an ace and yes; Bud Norris should be that guy. But, who's to say it couldn't be Lyles or Cosart. trading Norris, Sosa, Harrel or Weiland (all 30 in 2015) or Happ (33 in 2015) makes sense if you can add another youngster to the fold. 30 is not old but 25 would be better. So would the Astros be wrong to offer Norris in a deal for a top prospect...not at all.

2015 Potential Starting rotation:

Jordan Lyles

Jacob Turner (??) (just a dream)

Jarred Cosart

Mike Folynewicz

Paul Clemens

It could happen.
