Astros' owner Jim Crane joins ESPN 97.5 Houston and discusses the latest news on the Houston Open Golf Tournament. Crane also shares his thoughts on the Astros off-season and how more moves are expected to be made after Bryce Harper and Manny Machado pick a team to sign with. "Well, I think things are a little bottled up with the two big guys that haven't dropped yet," said Crane.

When asked about a win total for the Astros this year, Crane hinted that going over 96.5 games seems likely. Finally, Crane talks about how the team could use more pitching, and how there's still a possibility that the Astros bring back some free agents that haven't signed with another team yet. You can listen to the entire interview above. The Astros conversation occurs around the 12-minute mark.
