Will the Astros pay for Altuve and Correa when they become FA?
Or do they move on and just keep rolling with moneyball?

If they win the World Series, big if, they have to pay. Revenue will be through the roof

They'll keep one. Only about 5 teams would be willing to pay both and the Stros aren't one of them, especially with Bregman as well.

They’ll be the 2 they keep. Springer odd man out I believe

ETA: especially if Kyle Tucker is any good

What a terrible idea this would be

Edit: terrible to not keep both

You may be on to something. I'm just skeptical because it's going to take 120 mil a piece and the Astros don't like to spend. I hope they can get something done with both, but they would get HUGE money and years elsewhere.

They’ve got basically no money committed after 2019, checkbook should be super open

Yup, the Astros have two very talented outfield prospects in their pipeline with Fisher and Tucker. They'll be fine if Springer leaves. Correa and especially Altuve are irreplaceable. Give them what they want and lock them up long-term.

Myth. They just don't like to spend unnecessarily. They are willing to spend when they need to.

They didn't like to spend when they were rebuilding because there was no point. But it's a different time now.

Correa' dream team is the Yankees. I'm not sure if crane will be able to compete with a bidding war.

But any other team, Crane will keep both Altuve and Correa.
