Man, that's pretty bad if your cut from the worst team in the majors.

I agree however with the other post. We have our own problems to worry about and it's not looking pretty right now in the AL Central.

On the plus side, I do like their new uniforms!

I'll say they'll be marginally better than last year, they'll win 58 or 59 games. I believe the Marlins will finish with a worse record than Houston.

The Astros have some top prospects who could step in now and improve the compete level, like Cosart and Springer (who's leading the minors in HRs), but why waste a pre-arb year on these guys when they'll still lose +/- 100 games, especially if they may have higher ceilings with substantially more minor league development time.

I can see this happening with the Marlins. In fact, I hope it does.

The Astros and Marlins are both on pace to lose 115 games.
