Why do you think their road trip is tough? Looks like teams are all playing basically .500 ball or less while the rangers are playing red hot and are full of confidence. I see them going 6-3 on the trip. The Astros need to keep up their winning ways.

Ok, that's enough. I don't think y'all get it. We aren't looking to replace Fiers. We have plenty of internal candidates for that (Peacock, McHugh, Martes, etc.). We are looking for a stud to either slot in ahead of McCullers or just behind him. You gotta have 3 studs for the playoffs. Cole is a former #1 overall pick, if I'm not mistaken. You don't trade top prospects to replace Fiers

Umm, I completely get it. But when someone does show up that is a top of the line starter someone has to leave. That would be Fiers. How's that?

No urgency to do that. Morton might turn out to be the guy. Don't give up top prospects till you need to. Trade deadline deal or before that if you really start slipping. Thank God they didn't trade the farm for Quintana

It will be interesting to see what they do.
I think we need 1 more good pitcher, but we have a comfortable lead right now. No need to give up too much.

Yes, we gave up WAY too much for Gomez and Giles. Just ride the wave and see where it leads

Well if we are just talking math...57 minus 23 would be 34 games behind in head to head since the little brothers joined us in the division. Congrats

Minutiae

But we can play......

Who has the best overall record since team inception? Houston

Who has more playoff appearances? Houston

Who has more Pennants? Arlington (2) Houston (1) Ok, you got us!

Seriously, we knows it's May 17th and we're only 1/4 through a season but you can't deny this team has the chemistry and makeup to do something special. If we simply pick up a #3 starter, it'll be crazy to see where this team goes.

Rangers gained a whopping 0.5 game on the Astros with this little streak they are on.




I can't wait to play them again


Go Astros!!!

He has said he is still trying to find his release point with this new found speed. If he can play the entire year and stay healthy, Luhnow will have pulled of an amazing move.


Yeah I sure hope so. Astros have 3 prospects in the top 50 of the MLB minors in Martes, Paulino and Tucker. If they trade for Cole it might be the one instance where I could accept not having Tucker because he has the ability to challenge McCullers stuff wise for the no. 2 spot. And he is able to be controlled through arbitration for two more years after this year... but he is represented by Boras. So he's going to no doubt get paid in the future.

I heard a few more intriguing guys. Irvin Santana from the Twins. 34, wouldn't command as much and is lights out this year. Matt Harvey was a new name, filthy talent. Might jive well with our guys. If they trade for Cole they will are supposedly interested in their closer as well. Fox said te stros are starting to aggressively beat the bushes on some of these guys.

Plus side Morton came on the radio and was saying his stuff in New York was the nastiest and rawest he has ever felt. His upside has been awesome to watch.

Big series this weekend. The only team to win a series against the stros this year! Let's go boys
