Houston Astros rumors: Shin-Soo Choo edition

The Houston Astros are in need of some help. Coming off a horrifying 51-111 campaign that ended with 15 straight losses, the Astros are ready for change. They have a bounty of young prospects and a few good pieces, but the Astros need a cog in their lineup that they can rely on for top-level production.
