And today, in the obvious

Here's an article on how the Astros are willing to listen to trade ideas.

"I think, at this point, the best way I can say it is we're going to be good listeners. At the end of the day, we can listen to anything that gets discussed and we can also say no. I think to just out-of-hand dismiss any possibility of anything happening would be shortsighted on our part."

And he has a note specifically for Astros County:
"Nobody should read between the lines what that means, other than I answer my own phone. If a general manager from another club calls me and wants to talk to me about something, I know I always have the opportunity to say no."

Wade also said "at the end of the day" three times in the article. Solid cliche-ing, Wade.
