Here’s how Houston Astros stack up after Rangers aggressive trades
The MLB trade deadline is almost upon us, and we've already seen a flurry of moves with the Texas Rangers going all in to make a run this season. The Rangers now have a rotation with Max Scherzer and Jordan Montgomery, while the Astros have only made one trade, adding relief pitcher Kendall Graveman.
The Astros are rumored to have interest in acquiring Justin Verlander from the Mets, but Houston GM Dana Brown recently stated that adding another starting pitcher is not a priority.
Is Dana Brown just keeping his cards close to the vest? Is he trying to temper Verlander expectations, especially if owner Jim Crane is out on a JV reunion, simply because of his high price contract?
And if the Astros hold tight, do they have enough firepower to win the division over the Rangers?
Be sure to check out the video above as we shine light on these pressing questions.
