The season just started, and Astros fans are already refusing to tune in. Generate some excitement with Springer? Nah.

Let them eat cake.

Would you guys claim him with your #1 waiver in a Keeper, knowing you have Harper, Stanton, Pagan/Sizemore/Jackie Bradley Jr./ Corey Hart in an already crowded Outfield? I already have Baez and Syndergaard wasting away, I can't really afford another prospect unless he's up soon. Thoughts?

The TV situation for the Astros is an utter disaster, so is the product currently on the field.

Picking up right where he left off last year. I remain hopeful that he forces the hand of the Astros and they suddenly realize that they can bring a lot more fans in the stadium in exchange for 1 year of salary in 2019 or whatever.

Comcast is the only carrier that shows Sportsnet Houston,which airs the Astros games (and I believe Rockets games) and Comcast is only available in about 40% of the Houston area market. Anyone with Directv, AT&T uverse, time warner etc can't watch Astros games. So even if a person purchased the MLB package they would be blacked out, so 60% of Houston can't even watch Astros games...pretty bad.

Yup, it's true. Time Warner just bought the TV rights to the Dodgers. A brand new TV station came out this year (sportsnet LA). Time Warner is still negotiating with all other cable providers.....

Is there a chance GS gets promoted? Houston has the year of control (after April 12th I think I read) and now it is just about money.

If Houston brought him up now they could at least save some face and not risk angering the player's union so much. Houston has been operating in bad faith with regards to GS because a club isn't really supposed to keep a player down only for Super 2 reasons if the player is ready or at least as ready as they will ever be.
