Colon? Lol; I couldn’t resist. Yes the budget is pretty harsh compared to the Yankees and dodgers but other GMs compete on less.

Colon will probably start to fade in the second half. The MLB doesn't test players for PEDs in the off season so as long as they are clean when they hit spring training they can use whatever they want. I'm not saying Colon does this but he was a Biogenesis customer and he's a 280 pound 45 year old professional athlete. He might just have superior genes.

Colon always fades as the year goes on. He definitely doesn’t waste motion on the mound. He never tosses back for a new ball. All his throws are live. He works very efficiently.

So the team sucks and the Astros are awesome. On a positive note it looks like Machado is off the market so that makes Profar have some trade value. I have a feeling we'll be making a deal with the Phillies soon involving Diekman, Hamels and Profar.

They are pretty loaded with pitching prospects and one is named Ranger Suarez. That and the #1 overall pick from 2016 Mickey Moniak is still on their A ball team. He's pretty much worthless right now but has a ton of potential. I'd want at least one of these guys and Alfaro back.

Poor pitching = status quo = bad record.

I think the new stadium is going to help with that. We'll also be getting a new AAA affiliate to go with it.
