The Astros have checked in on Brett Anderson

The Astros and Brett Anderson:

This seems far more humane than all of that “aggressive” business the Dodgers and Marlins have been up to.

Astros: You doin’ OK, Brett?

Brett Anderson: Yeah, I’m alright.

Astros: Can we get anything for you, big guy? You thirsty?

Brett Anderson: No, I’m good. But thanks.

Astros: You, just checking in. Night, champ.

Much, much more pleasant, no?

As for Anderson: he was the A’s Opening Day starter in 2013. And he has the stuff to where he could easily be a front line starter again. It’s just a matter of him staying healthy. I presume the gamble on him won’t cost a ton, and certainly could pay off big.
