Strickland would be my bet if he loses the gig (at least with Romo out), but I doubt the Giants are ready to make a change based on Casilla allowing two runs thus far.

Why are teams considering signing Kyle Losche?
Steve Adams

Pitching depth is pitching depth and he was outstanding from 2011-14 before his 2015 meltdown.

Can we admit Astros gave up to much in Giles for Velasquez, Appel, Oberholtzer, Fisher trade?
Steve Adams

I don't think hindsight is/was required to say that. Trading five pitchers -- including Appel and Velasquez -- for a reliever was a staggering price to pay even at the time the deal was made.
Chief Scott

Valaquez career high in innings is 125 2 years ago, what's his limit around this year? 140? Would they move him to the bullpen eventually to keep him going the full season?
Steve Adams

I haven't seen any reports on his innings limit, but I'm sure he'll have one given his injury history and lack of innings. Health concern was the reason the Astros were comfortable moving him, I'm sure.

Worst Trevor Story pun?

Oh god. All of them. There are so many that it's not even possible to choose.

Any conclusory statement you'd like to make before you wrap up this chat?? That would be the correct timing, would it not?

I have no exciting or definitive statement, so we'll just go with your comment, as it is indeed about time for me to hop off. Thanks for chatting everyone -- we'll do it again next week!
