Astros Sign Geoff Blum

The Astros have reached an agreement with Geoff Blum, according to MLB Rumors Correspondent Steve Wilson. The deal is between one and two years, and he will probably be suited as a back up. He stated his interest to come back to the club so it is no surprise that this deal gets done as teams prepare for the big spending after Thanksgiving. Blum won a World Series with the White Sox in 2005 and played for the Astros is 2002 and 2003.

hey eli i was looking at your mailbag and u said the playoffs should be 7-7-7 because the teams cant do what then normally do in a 5 game seris why?

i think that because it does not allow teams to show their depth. in three games, you only see a part of the teams pitching staff-and only the starters. in a seven game series with travel and all, players get more worn down and you then see the part of the team that win a lot of the games.

what do you think about the normal scheduling?
