SportsFilter: The Tuesday Huddle

Thought I'd already posted this: Astros insane trade ideas leaked online.

The Astros went around to just about every team asking for their top prospects in return for Bud Norris. Reading the leaked notes has convinced me that being a baseball GM is simply playing in the highest stakes game of fantasy baseball, complete with ludicrous trade offers.

I don't get the "Stephen Drew costs us a pick" objection: are you a contender or no? Assuming you somehow find Mike Trout with a mid-first round pick, he's years away from helping.

At this point is it worth it for Drew to accept a one year deal? He will presumably have a line of suitors come June who will offer him multiple years.
