Astros GM Ed Wade hinted Wednesday that the Astros aren’t likely to make a major move this offseason. Alyson Footer worked up a report for MLB.com with a few choice quotes from the general manager.
"We’d have to sit down and have a discussion," said Wade. "Where we are right now, our payroll is $107 million. Last year, we finished around $98 million. We’re really up against our number at 107, and it’s a number, quite frankly, that the revenues don’t support."
Wade followed with a bit of a disclaimer: "Circumstances can change. We can see if we can create more flexibility to make it happen, but right now, the feeling is the group we’ve committed to at this point is the group we’ll go with, with 99 percent certainty."
