After almost half of the 2018 season in the books, the Astros have to be feeling really good about the trade for Gerrit Cole. Astros GM Jeff Luhnow keeps showing the world why he is one of the best in the business. The Astros did give up some good players in the trade for Cole. Colin Moran is working out just fine for the Pirates at 3rd base, but the pitchers the Astros sent over aren't performing nearly as well. Joe Musgrove hasn't been terrible but his ERA is over 4.50, and Michael Feliz has an ERA over 5.50. We're looking at a small sample size, but Houston fans love the addition of Cole to the Astros' rotation.
