Colby Rasmus doesn't ever want to leave the Astros

Colby Rasmus is only 29 years old, but he's already thinking about the end of his career. The outfielder recently re-signed with the Houston Astros with a one-year deal (becoming the first player to accept a qualifying offer in MLB history). Coming off a season in which he hit 25 home runs, collected 61 RBIs and was a postseason hero for Houston, Rasmus opted to stay in town on...

Colby Rasmus makes baseball history, accepts qualifying offer

Earlier this week I gave you a list of players I thought most likely to accept the qualifying offer–a one year contract worth $15.8 million. As is the way of things, that list did not include Colby Rasmus. I looked at his offensive numbers and assumed even in this robust outfield market that he could secure a 3 year deal. Until today that would have been enough for a player to...

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...

Young fan nails his Colby Rasmus Halloween costume

Game. Over. When I saw that Jose Bautista was holding a contest inviting his fans to dress like him for Halloween, I might have announced that he was the best at Halloweening. I was wrong. Very, very, very wrong. Whoever the parents are that dressed their kid up as post-Wild Card win Colby Rasmus win all the Halloween awards this year and next year. The Colby Rasmus Halloween...

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...

Player Profile #186: Colby Rasmus | OF | TOR

Just because Colby Rasmus hasn’t lived up to the potential he showed in his minor league career or his breakout 2010 season with the Cardinals doesn’t mean that he’s someone to ignore. After all, the 27-year-old outfielder has hit 22 or 23 HR in three of the last 4 years while posting a .225 ISO last year. But unfortunately Rasmus has become another one of those good power...

2013 fluke or future - Colby Rasmus

Would you believe me if I told you that Colby Rasmus' slugging percentage was only seven points lower than McCutchen in 2013? Would you believe me if I told you that he had a more valuable season than Adam Jones? How about if I told you that he had a better defensive season than Span, Ellsbury, Blanco and McCutchen? I would not blame you if you would not have believed any of those...
