Yeah just saw that Cole is an Astro.

Verlander, Keuchel, Cole, McCullers, Morton.

If everybody is healthy and performs like we know they can, this could be one of the top rotations the Astros have had in a long time

Wonder if they are looking for another backup catcher (reports are Gattis will primarily be DHing..)... to Bmac...
or will they stick with Stassi?

Link if anyone wants to read about it. I love the deal but I have been a big Musgrove fan and think he is going to have an outstanding MLB career.

Yup.. was excited about him before he took the plane, then entered the game with no bullpen...warmed up with some pitches from the mound..and then showed heart intensity and fire (some skill too)...in his first ever MLB game..
He's going to be a force.
Really good pick up for the Pirates.

That's a very Stout Rotation if they all stay Healthy. Glad they got it done.

Default 2017 Houston Astros season thread, "Earn it"

I'm happy with it. Stings a little with musgrove bullpen progress but we just got a former number 1 overall pick, stereotypical ace. Some advanced stats showed how Cole went to his off speed stuff a lot more last year vs years previous. As much as the stros like to spin it, look for this to increase. To say I'm excited is an understatement

Hey zztex. You started this thread last February. You should start a 2018 thread. I believe in Karma and it's up to you to start it. I don't want to Jinx 2018.

Good deal. Musgrove has potential but never could seem to get out of a big inning. Hopefully he has better luck elsewhere.

Great trade for the Stros. We didnt give up any major pieces for the current or future rosters. Pirates got a solid return too. 3 starters and a flyer on Martin. It appears as if the industry as a whole doesn't like the projections for Cole or they (Pirates) would have received a much better haul than what they did. I can't wait to see what our pitching staff can do with his "stuff".
