  3. Astros trades create opportunities

    Eric Karabell

    Eric Karabell

    Not all strikeout rates translate from the minor leagues to the majors, but in the case of Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Alex Cobb, who was successful in 2012 but hardly outstanding, it seemed like the best was still yet to come. It's why I paid p...
