The Astros entered the last off-season as the World Champions facing minimal turnover and very few personnel decisions. That was then and this is now as the Astros come off a very good season with a lot more question marks and personnel decisions on their plate. So, to check the pulse of the fanatics, today we will play a little game of “Would You Rather”.
Would you rather…
- The Astros re-sign Marwin Gonzalez or Charlie Morton?
- Have a return to greatness of Jose Altuve or Carlos Correa?
- The Astros sign Gerrit Cole or George Springer to an extension?
- Have a repeat of 2018 by Alex Bregman or Justin Verlander?
- J.B Bukauskas or Forrest Whitley come up to the big club in 2019?
- Have Josh James join the rotation or the back-end of the bullpen?
- The Astros pursue Catcher J.T. Realmuto in a trade or sign Wilson Ramos or Yasmani Grandal as a free agent?
- Have Kyle Tucker break camp as the full-time left fielder or use him as the centerpiece of an off-season trade?
- The Astros fill open rotation spot(s) with internal options (James, Collin McHugh, Brad Peacock, Framber Valdez) or with a Charlie Morton (circa 2017) free agent or trade pickup?
- The Astros make Ryan Pressly the new closer or keep Roberto Osuna as the closer or pursue a free agent closer like Zach Britton?
Just a few questions to whet the Astro appetite today and feel free to throw in a few “Would You Rathers” of your own…..
