As we move toward the trade deadline of 2014 it is time for all Astro fans to unite and pray to the almighty baseball gods. This appears to be a sellers market and the Astros need to clear the field of some vets that have no future with the team We need for somebody to over pay for Bud Norris. Will this happen? I think it will. Some team will give up something of value for him.
We need somebody to take Bedard. Hopefully, this will happen and open up a starting spot for Peacock who has been pitching very well since he went down to OKC.
If somebody will over pay for Jose Veras, I say go ahead and move him too.
Now this leads us to the position players. We need a miracle to happen and somebody takes Cedeno, Pena, and JD Martinez off of the hands of the Astros. This would open up valuable playing time for Marc Krauss, Jonathan Villar, and Chris Carter. It also might be a good thing if somebody took Maxwell. This would open a spot for George Springer.
If all of these things could happen by the will of the baseball gods, Astro fans could jump for joy. The new era would have begun.
