"[...] while the team they chase infused three significant pieces onto a first-place roster, the Astros stood pat, diminishing their chances for an American League West title this season to potentially prolong their window of opportunity down the road. [...] here the Astros sit, their strong farm system intact but their major league team 51/2 games behind the Texas Rangers in the division race and 21/2 games out of a wild-card spot. [...] up north in Arlington, the Rangers parted with three of their best prospects to acquire the best catcher on the market in All-Star Jonathan Lucroy from the Milwaukee Brewers, another late-inning relief option in his teammate, righthander Jeremy Jeffress, and veteran outfielder/designated hitter Carlos Beltran from the New York Yankees. According to industry sources, the Astros discussed deals with the Tampa Bay Rays for starting pitchers Matt Moore, Jake Odorizzi and Chris Archer but weren't willing to meet the farm system-crippling asking", www.houstonchronicle.com

Hinch's calm, cool, daily zen approach to baseball's endless unpredictable curveballs briefly became blunt and matter-of-fact. [...] the architect of the franchise's ongoing master plan acknowledged there was no way in the world his club would have done what Texas' other baseball team just did. The one major move the Astros did make - relocating reliever/starter Scott Feldman to Canada - resulted in the veteran righthander leaving his old team behind by walking down a hallway and draping a Blue Jays jersey across his body.

[...] for a franchise that shocked the heck out of us by giving Cuban third baseman Yulieski Gurriel 47.5 million 'win", www.houstonchronicle.com
"The start of Joe Musgrove's week - which included sleeping with his phone on his chest - took a turn for the better when the 23-year-old righthander fielded a call Monday from Astros manager A.J. Hinch, telling him he was joining the Astros. Musgrove takes the bullpen spot of Scott Feldman, who was traded Monday to the Blue Jays for minor league pitcher Lupe Chavez After two games with the Astros' Gulf Coast League affiliate in Kissimee, Fla., recently signed Cuban infielder Yulieski Gurriel will begin a stint with Class A Lancaster on Wednesday. The middle of August - perhaps as early as the Astros' two-game home series against the Cardinals on Aug. 16 and 17 - still appears a likely time frame for Gurriel to debut in the major leagues.", www.houstonchronicle.com
