    Paul Wilson headed to Astros?

    Per Rotoworld:

    The Astros are looking at bringing in free agents Paul Wilson and Pedro Astacio to compete for rotation spots.
    Since they traded their fourth starter for someone they want to be a No. 2 in Jason Jennings, the Astros still have two open rotation spots. It'd be nice if they had one more sure thing before dipping into the Wilson-Astacio-Ortiz pool of free agents, but the Carlos Lee signing left them with little flexibility.

    That'd be great. But you know every time we face him, we would K 10 times and get shutout.

    WOW!! Maybe they need someone to throw BP on the backfields during ST?
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    Yeah, it's a little passive-aggressive jab at Redszoner who dislike what Wayne's done.

    I'm sure he'll get a lot of traction with the pro-Wilson crowd on this site.

    Yes it was a joke and I didn't know that there was a pro Wilson crowd here.
    Had WK signed Paul Wilson he would have been stupid, What does this make the Astros Brass?

    Did you see that contract they gave Carlos Lee? I think that answers the question.

    I don't think the Astro's are stupid for making him a non-roster invitee; throwing him aginst the wall in ST games and see if he sticks.

    He won't; we know that. Wilson's arm is hamburger as of now. If anything, it's a bit reflective of the problem the Asstro's are going to have with pitching this year, and the other thing that comes to mind is this might be an attempt by his agent to get the Reds to invite Wilson themselves. :wilson:

    There's a pro-Wilson crowd on here? When did his mother join?

    Stros are hurtin for pitching with the departure of Pettite, and trading 2 of their young arms for one Jason Jennings..

    They signed Joel Piniero recently, I believe... and his stuff has suffered. They'll give shots to Nieve and Astacio, give Wilson a look... perhaps rush one of their youngsters. Or trade Ensberg for an arm.
