Astros acquire Carlos Gomez and Mike Fiers

Fiers seems like the classic NL pitcher who comes to the AL and bombs. He's a righty who doesn't throw hard and gives up homers

Gomez, however, is legit. Astros lineup is very deep. What did Houston give up?

Just says "several prospects"

@BNightengale: The #Brewers will receive Brett Phillips, Domingo Santana, Josh Hader and Adrian Houser from #Astros, per @Ken_Rosenthal

That's a really nice package for Milwaukee.

The Angels really need an impact bat even if it's a rental

 

They can't make decisions based on what other teams in their division do. Astros, after years of being awful, have acquired tons of young assets in their farm and have more to offer right now than the Angels do. They can make a deal like this without it really hurting them for the future. Angels, they are still trying to build things up in their minor leagues and also have tons of money tied up for this yr and next with very little to show for it

Ok, so who's really available? Upton, Cespedes and Bruce?

I'd take Cespedes. There was a report that the Angels wanted him, but couldn't wait for Detroit to make up their minds whether to sell or buy, so they settled for DeJesus and Murphy.

Edit: Oh and the following day Detroit decided to sell. Smh

Yep, that is a huge price to pay for a year-plus of Gomez.

Who gives a shit?

Remember the panic last summer when the A's were not only prepping to win the AL West by a large margin, but also blow through the playoffs on their way to a championship with their mid-summer acquisitions.

You guys crack me up.

Chuck gets pissed and bitches about CJ all night the other night, yet we are the ones that crack him up.
