03:17 PM ET 11.12 | The Houston Astros didn't have much to be proud of last season, at least on their Major League roster, though catcher Jason Castro was one of the few bright spots. So bright, in fact, that teams have been reportedly calling the Astros attempting to acquire the backstop in a trade. The free agent market for catchers is extremely thin once McCann, Saltalamacchia and Carlos Ruiz are signed. That has likely lead to teams attempting to avoid paying a higher price for Castro by making trade offers before those players sign, creating an even more desperate market. The 26-year-old backstop hit .276 with 18 home runs and 56 RBI for the Astros in 2013, doing so in just 435 at-bat's.

Why does Houston keep wanting to trade away the few bright spots on their roster At what point does Houston start building around the few bright spots. If Houston trades Castro They should get a Major League player or pitcher in exchange. The Atsros will get no where when they keep trading(supplying other teams) with their talent for more future prospects. If Astro trade Castro for prospects the Astros ill continue to lose 100 games every yearand continue to be the door mat for rest of division. eventually fans will quit showing up. They have been patient ,Knowing rebuilding takes time.

Astros in fielding offers for Castro should realize that catches are in short supply in this years free agency. If Astros field offers for Castro make it worth the Astros time Don't trade him for a couple of future prospects. Demand one of their top starters and a position player that has some pop in his bat. time to stop worrying about rebuilding and giving away talent and tart building around that talent.
