Maldonado to Astros, I wouldn’t have minded him for our back up as an upgrade and also to make Victor tradeable (if someone liked him)

I’d take the dive and jump in on him. He’s signed for 3 years after this and he has deferrals so idk exactly how much he’s owed but I think it’s in the $120 million range

Lol yes, obviously, it’s a ton of money/LT implications is what I was mostly pointing out.

Hamels is solid, and with his contract the prospect cost should be minimal. I feel pretty comfortable hand waving away spikes in dongs allowed if they're not due to velocity loss.

I'm all in on Hamels' home/road splits. Texas is basically Coors but without the fanfare.

He's a rental. I would venture to guess there's no chance he gets to 200 IP this season to vest his option.

he needs to get to 252. the option vests with 400 total innings pitched between this year and last.

I'm getting a real sense of deja vu about this Cole Hamels thing. It's like we did the same thing with Dan Haren. Except Dan Haren is funny.

This was pretty much my first thought. How do we turn this into Kela.

I did a little research on Hamels. And from what I understand, he is not Tyler Chatwood. DO IT.
