07:04 AM ET 07.11 | One of the top arms in the Astros organization is about to get his dream shot. Astros manager Bo Porter called the media back into his office late Wednesday and delivered the news: Jarred Cosart had a direct ticket to the Show. After Cosart went out of his way during spring training to say he wanted a spot on the Astros' opening-day roster, one of the rebuilding organization's most promising pitching prospects is scheduled to start Friday. ... The former Philadelphia Phillies prospect and League City native has some of the best stuff and one of the most lively arms in the Astros' organization. If he succeeds, he could pair with 22-year-old righthander Jordan Lyles in the club's rotation during future years.

I think run support could be a problem there for him.

Same thing I said when Bo Porter took that job.

I was trying to be kind. It's just too easy to lay into an organization like the Astro's. I will say that they have drafted very well the last couple of years.

I have 1 grillion dollars that says this thread doesn't make it to page 2.

"If he succeeds, he could pair with 22-year-old righthander Jordan Lyles in the club's rotation during future years."

More like "If he succeeds, he could be traded next week."

Not unless Clem does a countdown.
