Astros not buying...or selling

In a feel-good piece about the Astros by Jerome Solomon, he tells us Easy Eddie called a team meeting prior to the All-Star Break where he said...

“If we're going to get to the finish line first, it's going to be with the guys in the room. I don't think we're short. I think the talent is here. It's the little things we have to tighten up on and we have the guys that can do it. It's not like we're asking a bunch of inexperienced guys to go out and figure it out. We have veterans who have done it before.”

Then...

“I like the guys we have here. There may be guys out there this year at the trade deadline that might make us better, and we won't pass up a bargain, but not all teams that make blockbuster deals are going to be playing in October. That's where you get back to hope. We hope we avoid the major injury to key players, and we hope we do what we're capable of, and we hope we get to the finish line. That's what I told the team in the meeting. ‘It's on this group to get it done. And this group can get it done.'”


Does this make comfortable? Or uncomfortable?
