Astros might not be so easy to get along with

Jon Heyman says Ed Wade might be hard to trade with because he's trying to save his job:

One GM predicted that it will be "hard to trade with the Astros." He suggested that the Astros would try to "win trades to save their jobs," with a new owner coming in. That's too bad, because Houston is done and needs to restock at the upper levels of the minor leagues, competitors say.

The big question is, "Heyman needed to ask competitors for their assessment of the Astros' Triple-A quality?"
