2010 Options: Houston Astros

Let's take a look at the 2010 options facing the Astros.

  • Doug Brocail - $2.85MM club option with a $250K buyout.  Brocail tossed 5.6 ugly innings this year before hitting the DL with a torn hamstring.  It'd probably make sense for the Astros to decline the option and try to sign the 42 year-old more cheaply if they still want him.
  • Brian Moehler - mutual option.  He's had a rough season, with an 8.31 ERA and a knee injury.  On the bright side, the .411 BABIP has to come down. 

Beyond those two hurlers with options, the Astros have many free agents after '09, including Miguel Tejada, Jose Valverde, LaTroy Hawkins, Ivan Rodriguez, and Mike Hampton.  Should they make an effort to retain any of them?  Will the Astros shop these players, or instead hold out for another comeback playoff run?
