Astros Rumors: Sabathia, Wolf, Hawkins

Brian McTaggart of the Houston Chronicle has the lowdown on the Astros.

  • Again the word "tweak" is thrown around in regard to the Astros’ offseason.  So I would not expect a major signing or trade.
  • Regarding C.C. Sabathia, owner Drayton McLane said, "That might be way out of our league."
  • The Astros will try to re-sign Randy Wolf and LaTroy Hawkins.  It would still make sense to sign a starter if Wolf is retained.  GM Ed Wade has flexibility to go past last year’s $90MM payroll.
  • The ‘Stros will apparently go with internal options in center field.  At catcher, they’ll look for someone to complement J.R. Towles.  Pretty much all the catchers out there are short-term options anyway.
