Rasmus snaps funk with big homer vs. Yanks

The ball jumped off the bat of Colby Rasmus like it did for much of the first half of the season when he turned on a Masahiro Tanaka split-fingered fastball and sent it soaring over the right-field wall for a two-run homer in the third inning of Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Yankees at Minute Maid Park.

McCullers, Rasmus help Astros over Yankees 4-1

HOUSTON (AP) Lance McCullers struck out 10 in six solid innings, Colby Rasmus broke out of a slump with a two-run homer and the Houston Astros beat the New York Yankees 4-1 on Wednesday night. Rasmus snapped an 0-for-29 skid when he sent an off-speed pitch from Masahiro Tanaka (7-3) into the seats behind the bullpen in right-center field to make it 4-0 with one out in the third...

2011 Revisited: Worldview Shaking

If you blog long enough (usually about a week, though some of us don’t even make it that long), you are going to be wrong about something.  The first blush reaction to the Colby Rasmus trade isn’t the same as the post-Series lens we use to look at it today.  Fair is fair, though, so here it [...]

Colby Rasmus' Free Agent Prospects

Colby Rasmus is one of the most intriguing free agents of this winter. When he signed for the Astros on a one-year deal last winter, I believe most people, myself included, thought this was a one-year situation, and he would move on after 2015. However, Rasmus' play all season was far better than the Astros, or anyone, could have possibly expected. In the latter part of the season...

Is Colby Rasmus a potential fit for the Cleveland Indians?

The Cleveland Indians have an interesting offseason ahead. As World Series-winning GM Dayton Moore just mentioned, the team’s starting rotation is playoff-quality and “one of the best in the game.” After that? There certainly are some question marks. And they likely begin with the outfield. Heading into next season, the Indians have Michael Brantley penciled in at left field...

Shirtless Colby Rasmus the first party-hearty star of MLB postseason (pics)

After his mammoth home run in the second inning helped lead the Houston Astros to a 3-0 Wild Card victory over the New York Yankees, Colby Rasmus had every reason to celebrate. And boy, did he ever whoop it up. A shirtless Rasmus, rocking goggles, was up front and center among the exultant Astros players relishing the victory at Yankee Stadium, looking more like a pro wrestler than...

Colby Rasmus, the Astros, and Strikeouts

I don’t think one should require much convincing that the Houston Astros are taking a worthwhile shot in signing Colby Rasmus. Most simply, it’s a one-year contract for a 28-year-old, and it’s worth just $8 million. Rasmus has had a volatile career — last year he finished with a .287 OBP — but he was […]

Let’s talk about Colby Rasmus

For some inexplicable reason, I’ve always been a Colby Rasmus fan. Actually, I can explain it – Tony La Russa hates Colby Rasmus, so I must love him. Traded for pennies on the dollar to Toronto, Rasmus (the former #3 prospect in baseball) has had a very up-and-down career so far. He’s now a free agent, and one the Cubs will no doubt look into. Offense Rasmus has put up some...
