Contract aside, here’s why Astros have no choice but fix Rafael Montero

When the Houston Astros signed Rafael Montero to a 3-year, $34,500,000 contract this offseason many fans and media members were surprised. Montero had one quality season to his name, and landed the fifth-biggest reliever contract in MLB.

Houston did not have a general manager at the time, and as we approach the half-way point of the season, that deal looks like a huge mistake. Montero's ERA is over 7, and he just can't be trusted in any situation.

So what should the Astros do? ESPN Houston's John Granato and Josh Jordan share their thoughts on how the Astros can fix Montero and salvage a troubling situation.
