Cool note on Springer he is down 15#’s.. focused less on strength and more on speed for this offseason. In the past he has come in at 235. He is 220 this year... 3 stolen bases in his first few spring games.

Vegas has the Astros with the highest win total for all MLB teams with the over/under being set at 97.5 wins.

That is interesting since there were 3 100+ win teams last year and it seems to be even more of a have and have not American League this year. I guess it just shows how incredibly hard it is to achieve 100 wins.

In other news, Keuchel remains unsigned. It seems no one is offering more than a 3 year deal and some are 1 year deals. Boras overplayed his hand on this one.

As far as I know, none of the projection models have ever predicted a 100 win team.

And there have been 6 100+ win teams in the last two years. Vegas may have to tweak their model. I guess Im going to have to lay down some cash on the over for the Astros. You know, put my money where my mouth is!

Well, vegas isn't trying to project wins. They are trying to get even money on both sides of a bet.

But, the statistical projection systems at Fangraphs, BP, etc are probably within their margin of error if a 97 win projection team wins 100. Any statistical model is going to have trouble with the tail ends of both curves.

We know how Vegas works my friend and absolutely understand statistical projection. Let's not make this too heavy of a conversation. Just having some fun baseball talk about a team that is poised to do very well if it stays healthy.

Yeah I’ve heard both that the Stros and Phillies are still in on talks with Kuechel. Both are rumored to be short term deals like you are talking. Sign me up for 2 years 32 million if we could get it.

Verlander said he isnt anywhere near ready to retire and sees himself pitching into his mid 40s. Still trying to follow in Nolan's footsteps it seems. He also said because of that he doesnt care if he gets a long term deal or not.

I still think we offer him a 2 or 3 yr extension at some point. He will be easier to sign than Cole IMO. Cole will be looking for his first big pay day type deal.

It will have artificial turf instead of grass as well. That is going to suck for the players. Good luck recruiting top FAs to play there.

19 days out! It’ll be here before we know it.

Good to see McCugh back working. We need him to gobble up innings this year. Whitley struck out 6 in 3 innings yesterday.

Maldonado signs 1 year $2.5 million. Turned down 2 years $12 million offer from Stros at the beginning of free agency 😳. Maybe we will get DK back😄
