the funny thing about all these robot references you guys make are that i don't even get 99% of them because i practically reject sci fi as an entire genre (with the lone exception of terminator 2)

Luhnow seems to worship at the Friedman/Mozeliak altar of efficiency, so color me skeptical he's going to do what it takes to be the top bid for a 31 year old free agent SP.

Aren’t the Astros really cheap? Like there had to be some major arm twisting to acquire Verlander when they knew they were one of the best 2-3 teams in MLB and needed a starter?

It's actually Jose Fernandez.

ETA: Prior and Wood are in the top 10. Obviously this is all-time as a starter.

10:35pm: Wilson reports that Darvish and Daniels are planning to have dinner this week, but Darvish’s agents will not be in attendance and the two do not plan to discuss business. The two are simply having dinner, per Wilson, adding that Daniels has continually maintained the stance that Texas will not play at the top of the free-agent market. The dinner was actually planned for November but was pushed back to this point. Darvish himself confirmed as much by quote-tweeting Wilson and adding the comment, “Tomorrow night!”

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports the same sentiment, noting that Daniels and Darvish never had much of a chance to have a conversation when Darvish was traded to the Dodgers. Grant likens the meeting to an “exit interview” and emphasizes that Darvish’s lead agent, Joel Wolfe, will not be present.

All of that said, it’s still a bit of an eyebrow-raiser to see Daniels, whose rotation is rife with uncertainty, meet with the top free-agent pitcher on the market under the guise that no business will be discussed.
