Astros 15th in off-season spending

The invaluable MLB Trade Rumors put together a list of total free agent spending this off-season, and broke it down by team.

Where are the Astros? Why they no spent all moneys? Wait. They were 15th in off-season free agent spending - with $44m. A big chunk of that was Scott Feldman, of course, but at least the Astros didn't go the Pirates' route...spending only $7m to date. Of course, the Astros' $44m is just under a tenth of what the Yankees spent this offseason but whatever.
