goes to the Astros for pawning off Justin Maxwell, an utter stiff, to the Royals for one of their top 5 or 6 prospects.

Well truth be told, I thought Maxwell would stick there for a while, he has a decent bat with some pop, and is a good fielder, he's just has injury problems this year with concussions.

Which makes it even more odd that the Royals gave up Kyle Smith.

Not a bad return for a guy pulled off the waiver wire from the Yankees.

I'd say.
Not only does he usually have a low average and low obp, he was in the midst of his worst season.
The Astros certainly have been aggressive in trading off every veteran someone winks at and usually getting a decent return.
