    Charlie Morton signed with the TB Rays for some pretty big money, I guess we decided he was not worth it?

    Brantly will be a good pick-up. After watching Chirinos while he was with the Rangers, I would not put him in the "what will make us great again" category. He is an average functional catcher.

    Chirinos bat is a nice improvement imho.

    Brantley’s contract supposed to be $15 million in 2019 and $15 million in 2020. It contains a $2 million signing bonus.

    Not Astros, I just thought it was kind of interesting
    Joey Votto has seen 27,668 pitches over 6,764 career plate appearances. He has never popped out to the catcher, pitcher, or first basemen.

    Votto seems to drive a lot of people nuts

    We need to add a starting pitcher or two.
