Here’s why the latest Astros noise is being framed a certain way

A lot has been made of the Houston Astros' offseason moves as several of them have not panned out so far, and the team made these signings without a general manager in place.

While Michael Brantley could return from injury at some point this year, clearly he was not ready to start the season as the team projected, and the signings of Rafael Montero and Jose Abreu look like huge mistakes at the quarter pole of the season.

So who deserves the most blame for these missteps? Jeff Bagwell has taken most of the heat, as he was the face of the Abreu signing and was reportedly being considered for the GM position, along with Brad Ausmus, before the Astros hired Dana Brown.

But he's not alone in this.
