James of Astros County and Tim of the Crawfish Boxes team up to bring you the Astros Boxes, an unscripted podcast that cover some of the Astros' hot topics.

James Yasko of Astros County and myself have done the unthinkable and teamed up to bring you yet another Astros podcast. The format for TAB is a little different in that there are not time constraints and it's unscripted, with the exception of the opening sentence. Each podcast we'll talk about whatever we feel like talking about.

Our next podcast will be Tuesday, November 19 at 8 p.m. CST and I think this time we'll record it live.

This episode we talked about, among other things:

  • Free agency and Shin-Soo Choo in particular
  • Blogging origins (Happy 5th anniversary to Astros County)
  • George Springer and revolving doors
  • Paul Clemens or Lucas Harrell

Responses Wanted

James brought up an interesting question on the podcast. If you had to choose one pitcher to keep on the 40-man roster between Paul Clemens and Lucas Harrell, who would you keep?

Harrell has had more success but Clemens is younger.

Clemens has stuff scouts rave about but Harrell has a really good groundball rate.

Both are considered fiery guys and competitors.

Neither pitcher was very good this year.

I took Harrell, who would you take? Vote and then leave your case for either guy in the comment section below. We'll discuss the results on next weeks podcast.

We also want to know what you would say or do if Jose Altuve showed up to Spring training nine inches taller and why you think James dislikes Erik Bedard so much.
