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?

The Astros got back on track with a win on Sunday, and have the Detroit Tigers coming to Houston for a 4-game series that begins on Monday night.

The Tigers are having a down year, to put it kindly, which presents the Astros with a great opportunity to string together some wins and make up some ground on the Yankees.

ESPN 97.5's Charlie Pallilo shares his thoughts on how this week is extremely important for the Astros.
