"We picked up a couple of guys," said one Astros fan. "It’s going to help us out.  That’s what we need."

"I’d have to give [the Astros] a C," said Earnest Solis. "It was about average."


The Astros made three key moves leading up to the trade deadline. Trading for relief pitcher Will Smith, first baseman/outfielder Trey Mancini, and catcher Christian Vasquez.

"I was impressed with some of the moves they made," said Buddy Roussel. "I wasn’t expecting to get Mancini."

The Astros are currently are in first place in their division. Fans are confident these moves will help the team reach a 4th World Series in six years.
