Luhnow: "Probably not the last of these types of deals."
After seeing this tweet, I know everyone on this site is thinking "
1B: Gattis, Carter, Singleton
SS: Lowrie, Gonzalez, Correa eventually
3B: Dominguez, Moran soon, Gattis will not play 3B.
C: Castro, Conger, Gattis, Corporan, Stassi
RP: Neshek, Gregerson, Sipp, Qualls, Fields, Chapman, Deduno, Harris,
OF: Springer, Fowler, Grossman, Marisnick, Gattis, Presley
The most obvious hole in the Astros roster is still at SP. I'm a big fan of Houston's top four pitchers (Keuchel, McHugh, Feldman, and Oberholtzer). Ideally the Astros would add a proven "ace" such as Cole Hamels, David Price, or Max Scherzer, but even a solid No. 2 or No. 3
Guys such as James Shields, Doug Fister, or maybe Mike Leake? Would you rather see the Astros take a chance on a guy such as Brandon Beachy
What would it take to get a Hamels or Price in a trade? If I was the Astros, I would be willing to send Singleton, Santana, and Castro for Price, assuming I knew he was going to sign a long term contract.
For Hamels, a package centered around one of Singleton/Santana, Castro, and a decent pitching prospect would get it done for me. For Doug Fister maybe a trade centered around Castro, Neshek/Gregerson, and a pitching prospect would get it done.
Let us know what you would like to see the Astros
