My first reaction was to rofl, I guess this is the Astros response to Milwaukee getting Sabathia and the Cubs getting Harden and Gaudin. Um, Really Ed Wade?
Someone needs to tell Ed Wade that the Astros ship sailed long ago and that any moves he makes at this point is akin to rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. Someone needs to tell Ed Wade that the Astros shouldn't be trying to compete with the Joneses when you're so far away from being a Jones yourself you can barely see them. I'm left wondering where the 'Stros are going to be in two years? They didn't have a great farm system to begin with and now Wade has gutted it for the likes of Miguel Tejada and Randy Wolf among others. Where are those guys going to be in two years? Where are the prospects he traded going to be in two years? If Mr. Wade was smart he'd stop being the Anti-Beane and start trying to stockpile some good, young talent to the organization and stop adding aging players who are on the down hill side of their careers.
Anyway, nothing personal against Randy Wolf. He's descent enough I suppose. He's not going to do a damn thing for the Astros playoff chances though this year and I suspect anyone who's paying attention knows that. Oh well, maybe before it's all said and done Wolf will administer a beating to Ed Wade, ala Shawn Chacon. Might as well get some entertainment from this after all.
