MLB.com’s Alyson Footer has some quotes from free-agent-to-be Mike Hampton regarding Houston:
"I’ve always loved this place. Definitely. I’m sure there will be interest on both sides. We’ll see if we can work something out. I’ve always loved it here."
Hampton, 36, showed promise in thirteen starts this year. He could be a useful back of the rotation addition for Houston. Many teams might consider him (Rockies excluded).
