Astros offseason moves bold and glamorous

Retired? Not yet, bored with this years off season? Fuck Yeah! The Astros continued their whirlwind off season acquisitions yesterday with the signing of Matt Kata, a 30 year old minor league player who they hope can compete for a spot to back up Miguel Tejada.

I'm gonna kick back and let that sink in for awhile.

The Kata signing comes on the heels of Mike Hamptons return, Hampton who once finished second in the Cy Young voting while in a Houston Uniform comes home leading the "audacity of hope" mantra that the nearly flawless starting rotation will no doubt adopt as the season gets underway in 120 days.

I cant tell you how awesome it is to be an Astros fan currently, other than the two blockbusters i just mentioned, the biggest story of the off season is how the club will deal with economic woes.

That's what i want to hear about, the economy. God knows when i go to the local sports page in the morning i want to get the latest update on what my favorite baseball team WONT be doing due to the infringing economic crisis. I don't hear people talking enough about the economic crisis anyway, please molest my precious baseball rumors with fiscal doubt and uncertainty.

Well i have been a negative nelly long enough today, i hope everyone Else's off season is going well and that there are those who don't have starting rotation worries(cough cubs cough).

Merry Christmas you pitching rich bastards!!
