The Astros won’t give up and are aggressively pursuing trades "specifically looking for relievers" according to Krysten Oliphant of MLB.com. Oliphant notes that GM Ed Wade’s decisions will be determined by the clubs success over the next few series:
"’We’d like to get some late-inning bullpen help to help with Doug Brocail so we’re not wearing Doug out,’ Wade said prior to Friday’s win against the Cubs. ’And obviously we’re always trying to see if there are ways to upgrade our starting rotation, but that doesn’t put us in exclusive company with anybody.’"
There are a lot of names on the reliever market. I’d be surprised to see them land one of the big fish.
