The Astros are pretty desperate to want Mr. Finch up in the majors. Wow.

Unbelievable. How does Wade figure that cutting Englebrook, a potentially useful reliever for a team that needs bullpen help, is more expendable than YORDANY RAMIREZ? Seriously, when is this franchise going to understand that a 26-year old who can’t post an OPS over .600 at AAA isn’t deserving of a 40-man roster spot?
