USA Today Sports

Winter Meetings and Rule 5 coverage plus links to all of TCB's coverage of the transactions this past week and some great discussion with your fellow Astros fans.

We will be doing a live TCB Astros Afterburners podcast Friday evening December 7, 2012, at 7PM CT, discussing the Wilton Lopez trade, Rule 5 selection and anything that happens today. Along for the ride will be Greg Stanwood from Purple Row, SB Nations Colorado Rockies blog. We'll get his take on the trade, Wilton Lopez, Alex White and Alex Gillingham.

We may also have a live podcast shortly after the Rule 5 Draft has been completed to discuss the selections and possible moves the Astros made. Word out of Nashville is that the Astros are expected to select two players in the Rule 5 draft. Could one of them be the player to be named later in the Lopez Deal? Stay tuned to find out.

Draft starts at 9 a.m. CT
