I don't have that opportunity, do you have any examples?

I do but I'm not going to share them here. If you're really that interested I can pm you the examples.

I knew it!

He was probably just a better scout than you. Don't be sour.

Scout versus scout beef. Maybe back in the 1990's Jeff Luhnow got a job over Keyser and now Keyser is uber jealous.

Either way, I like what the Astros have done. Complete rebuilds work with guys as smart as Theo and Luhnow in charge. I'll very passively root for them over the next several years.

I do too, and I also like what they gave the Brewers for Gomez and Fiers. :D

Go Stros!!!

Publicly he screwed over two kids in Aiken and Nix in last year's draft.

I'm pretty sure there was a little ruckus with preferential treatment given to Appel.

I think he comes from Daryl Morey school of being a douche. Players are a simply an employee number to be flipped and dumped however his computer directs him to do.

There was also something last offseason where Ryan Vogelsong was going to sign with the Astros and on his visit he GTFO and wanted no part with the franchise.

Tough business, I just like the direction he has the team headed. Sometimes you have to be a dick.

Stumbling out of the gate with a 7-17 April. That's a real shame.

They'll be alright. Texas was 7-14 and in last place on May 1 2015.

This is going to be a good team to pillage when they start selling off pieces soon. Neshek and Gregerson are useful bullpen arms and Gattis could be a good DH. The guy the Sox should target is Jason Castro. They've long been a fan of his and he's a free agent after the season so it shouldn't take too much to acquire him. They can shit can Avila and go with Castro/ Navaro then hopefully resign him in the off season and go with Castro/Smith for the next few years.
