We’ll update as necessary, but this is the place for Bud Norris trade conversation.
• •• ••• •• •
Looks like Bud is a goner. If the CIA or national security folks were involved, they’d be speculating about something breaking imminent with all the “chatter”. Baltimore? Pittsburgh? Boston? A mystery team?
Whether he’s traded today, tomorrow or this winter, it seems clear that Norris is not a fit for Jeff Luhnow’s blueprint of the future. The likes of Cosart, Lyles, Appel and others will likely grace the rotation in 2014 and 2015 when the Astros start to realize the fruits of the rebuilding project that began in earnest in 2010.
Get the Bud conversation rolling, but check back often for updates and opinions.
