MLB.com’s Alyson Footer spoke with Astros GM Ed Wade and has the latest on the club.
- The Astros made "11th-hour" offers to Randy Wolf and Braden Looper before they signed elsewhere.
- They offered Wolf a one-year deal with a mutual option for 2010.
- The offers to Wolf and Looper were both for less than $5MM.
- The Astros haven’t spoken with Ivan Rodriguez in weeks and never made him a formal offer.
- Wade says he isn’t likely to make any moves between now and the regular season.
