The Astros made a nice deal getting Dexter Fowler; they gave up some ex prospects who have done nothing at the ML level. Fowler would have been a big upgrade of us in CF.
Heck yeah. Not a bad haul for a post-prospect starter who has zero consistency and a utility outfielder. Seems like a salary dump for Colorado.

The only issue is where does George Springer play? He should arrive in the majors this year, and he's a 5-tool 40HR/40SB CF, and Fowler is only average defensively in center.

I think the Astros are a good hitting, lower strikeout DH/1B and a few bullpen arms away from starting to climb back to respectability.
