Richard Justice's blog post this morning discusses the Astros' making a point not to get Roy Hallady, and it turns in to an Easy Eddie love fest (which, as of today, is completely appropriate)....
The Astros just got their draft class signed on the field faster than any other team in baseball. They just spend a couple more million on international signings. They're building an academy in the Dominican Republic.
In ways large and small, the Astros are doing what smart organizations do. They're building from the ground up while attempting to keep the big league team competitive.
There'll be a day when it's time to pull the trigger on a Roy Halladay team and announce, ''We're going for it.'' That's what the Astros did with Randy Johnson. This isn't that time.
