Most SMH worthy off-season moves contest

Let's have a contest to see who can come up with the craziest "Chron Comment" style offseason moves to turn the Astros into a contender next year. The winner will get the same prize I received when I won the "Guess Jason Castro's Debut Date" Contest in 2010 (I never received it.)

Here's my entry (yes, I'm allowed to win again):

Trade Tony Sipp, Brad Peacock, Jon Singleton, and Dexter Fowler to Toronto for Edwin Encarnacion.

Trade Brett Oberholtzer, Marwin Gonzalez, Matt Dominguez, and Jonathan Villar to the Angels for Erick Aybar.

Trade Jason Castro to the Dodgers for Kenley Jansen.

Sign Russel Martin.
Sign Pablo Sandoval
Sign Melky Cabrera
Sign Nick Markakis

Sign Jon Lester
Sign Max Scherzer

Sign Huston Street
Sign Luke Gregerson
Sign Andrew Miller
