This is the most vague tweet. Ever.

So, you may know that Ben Sheets will be throwing tomorrow, showing off his new bionic arm. And you may think that the Astros would be interested. After all, they at least got out of the office for an hour to watch Aroldis Chapman pitch a ball. But, I guess since Ben Sheets will be throwing in Louisiana, it's just too dadgum far. Unless it's not.

Brian McTaggart is tweeting:
Ed Wade said this morning Astros have no plans to watch Ben Sheets throw on Tuesday, though that could change.

Maybe they'll watch. Maybe they won't.

Sounds like Tweeting for the sake of tweeting.

I suppose Wade is satisfied with signing Myers, and believes it is safe to say they are not interested in anyone else. We shall find out.

By the way, nice blog. I found it just today and I'm excited to read new perspectives on my beloved Astros.

Seems pretty pointless to me. We already picked up a post-surgery potential #2-#3 starter; we don't have any rotation slots open. If we're going to replace a starter, it should be a position player, probably Kaz Matsui (with Orlando Hudson or Felipe Lopez).

Totally agree that there's no real perceived need for Sheets currently, and his pricetag would definitely keep the Astros out of the running, anyway.

There's only one spot open in the rotation, and it seems like that's coming down between Moehler and Paulino.

We could replace Kaz Matsui with a foosball player, for all I care. And I mean an actual wooden figure on a rail.

@Lane - thanks for reading, glad you found AC!
