Ok after Cosarts GEM of a game which we can all blame ED WADE for and get real mad at tim purpura for, we all start to over react and decide to speed up the rebuild and nominate cosart for a spot on a all time best astros player spot.
First id like to say cosart was magnificent in his spot start but it was 1 start and this could be like a bud norris thing where cosart happens to be like gem like against only the rays and league average against others. Second we get way to mad at ED WADE. i actually have to say the trades he made were wins or washes. the bourn trade a wash cause bourn is no longer with atl and pence trade a win mostly because we recieved quality players. Oswalt trade well the only one i remember from that trade was wallace and neither has done much for their teams. Oswalts now with the rockies and had back issues with the phillies. TIM PURPURA was the villian, the one to blame along with tal smith. The tejada trade i despise and taveras trade just makes me mad and then horrible drafts along with it. Lets face it ed wade is to the astros what john hart was to the rangers. Basically hart started the rebuild like wade but both were not retained and the successors did better jobs.
NOW the real question. Blow team up now or later? Cosart was amazing but does this leade to like rushing players up to the bigs from triple a just because of one players spot start. YES but only to an extent. Lughnow knows who is rule 5 eligible and probably goes for those players first unless those players stink or truly will not be picked next year by a team. So after the break Maxwell and paredes could be released and norris should be traded along with bedard released.
Cosart gets called up and woj gets called up and martinez gets promoted to triple A and cokinos to double A.
Woj gets promoted to the majors and starts from the bullpen.
NOW not to start a riot here but SPRINGER SHOULD NOT BE CALLED UP. he and singleton need the time in triple A. i believe they should get the chance after spring training next year. i see stoffel possibly getting called up this year and low level players going to their next levels. APPEL needs more time in the minors then the front office says their plan for him is. he should spend 2014 in double and triple a.
Anybody got thoughts on this?
