Last quote by Jeff Luhnow

When we didn't make any major moves at the end of July, people said the sky was falling and we ruined an opportunity to win a championship and so forth. But you can't let that sort of criticism and that sort of feedback affect what you're trying to do. We've constantly keep the best interests of the Astros in mind in every move that we make.feedback

Power's exciting, power sells tickets and power wins games, at times. But power usually comes at the expense of rally-killing strikeouts in other instances. It's not a satisfying brand of baseball, and I don't think it's a winning brand of baseball, necessarily, to have 30-home run hitters with 200 strikeouts a year. You can have one of those guys, but we ended up having a few of them up and down our lineup. So we made a decision to try to change the nature of our lineup by adding guys that made hard contact.feedback

I realize you can't fight City Hall, and people have been so indoctrinated in this method of thinking about players that you have to accept it and work with it. And I think it actually, over the years, has grown on me. Maybe that's because I've gone native, but I do think that there's a certain language that scouts and coaches and executives have regarding player evaluation that when you throw out a term like 'fringy average' or 'plus-plus,' as a scout you know exactly what that means, and you can sort of envision what that looks like in the player.feedback

I was trying to force it into deciles – like if the scale's 20 to 80, then there should be a certain number of major league players between 70 and 80 by definition, if each bucket is even. Then I went back and looked at our data, and I couldn't find any hitters that were between 70 and 80 on the hit tool. I thought, Well, how can that be?' And they said, Well, an 80 is Tony Gwynn and Wade Boggs. Those guys are once in a generation.feedback

I do believe that Charlie Morton isn't a back-of-the-rotation guy. He hit 97 three times in the first inning yesterday, with a lot of sink on his pitches and good secondary stuff. A healthy Charlie Morton could work himself into the conversation with Dallas Keuchel and Lance McCullers at the top of our rotation.feedback
