The Astros avoided being swept by the A's on Sunday after getting the offense going and Justin Verlander settling down after giving up two early home runs. Verlander went 5 1/3 innings and the bullpen was able to keep the A's from scoring after Verlander's departure. By avoiding the sweep and getting the win, the Astros managed to stay in first place in the AL West.

Should the Astros go all-in and sign Bryce Harper?

The Astros made an attempt to trade for Bryce Harper a few months ago, but were not able to get a deal done. Now that Harper is a free agent, should the Astros pay a huge price and bring in the left-handed slugger?
