Very good read.  Some real insight to the mess that is Houston.  Glad to hear that Neil offered what he did.  Though, I can understand why Ludnow said no to Heredia and a pick.  If I were Houston, I'd have been ok with just Hansen.  I'd want someone fairly close to the majors and less risk than Heredia.

Looks like Giancarlo Stanton really was available last summer, eh?

Their GM is already denying it, but it looks like Stanton was available for a high price.

Yes.  Stanton was available.  Anyone is available for the right price.

The more I read about the way Huntington does deals the more and more I like his thought process.  Even though I don't agree with all of the trades he has made, I have trust in him that he does things the right way.  I wouldn't have had a problem with Heredia and a comp pick, that is only a slight overpay IMO.  You're normally going to slightly overpay at the deadline anyways.  The Astros were absolutely crazy with their asking prices, comical actually.  I understand you ask for too much in the beginning normally, but their asking prices were literally insane.  They look by far the worst out of any team in this leaked information.
