Mark Melancon did not see the trade to the Astros coming

An article in the Times-Leader focuses on Mark Melancon, who was quite surprised when the Yankees dealt him to the Astros.

Melancon:
“I was shocked, because it was so out of the blue. At that time, I was focused on being in pinstripes. It didn’t really enter my mind I would be pitching for somebody else.”

Then when he saw how much worse the Astros are than the Yankees, he got excited:
“After about five minutes of realizing what type of opportunity I had here in the Astros organization, I was excited."
