Astros to check out Aroldis Chapman

Thank God. Good news. The Astros will be among several teams checking out Cuban pitcher Aroldis Chapman.

However, it has more to do with the workout will be around the corner (or at least at an undisclosed location) in Houston than it will be about actually showing interest in Chapman.

Ed Wade:
"Obviously, it's a high-profile guy who's got a chance to have a huge upside, so it behooves us to be a partipiant in the opening moments and see where it goes from there."

I think the concluding part of that statement was, "and if it takes us to Quizno's, so be it."
