With the Astros making a push for the playoffs, the team recently decided to designate Carlos Gomez for assignment. Gomez has had a dreadful season at the plate and really not helping the Astros playoff push at all. The Astros will have to decide soon whether to trade Gomez or Gomez will become a free agent.
However, ESPN.com has reported a possible trade between the Astros and Cardinals. According to the report, the Cards are interested in getting a replacement for Matt Holliday who broke his thumb against the Chicago Cubs earlier this week.
Personally, I do not see Carlos Gomez turning it around to make an impact for the Cardinals or any team. but they are free to have him in my opinion.
Maybe a change of scenery might help him out. Who knows?
If the trade does go through, it will be interesting to see the reception Gomez gets at Minute Maid Park on August 16th as the Astros open a two game series against St. Louis.
Earlier this year, I was asked to join a new sports website, Top Sports Report as the Houston Astros writer. Linked below is my newest article that was just posted today!
I will be writing there from now on and I hope you check out what this site has to offer!
On Thursday, my alma mater Texas State University introduced its new football coach, Everett Withers. Withers comes from James Madison University where he compiled a 25-13 record in two seasons with the Dukes. He also has FBS and NFL coaching experience as well.
It wasn’t just his record of success or his vast experience that impressed me, It was his infectious enthusiasm, commitment, leadership style and his desire to take Texas State football to the next level. He wants to be a Bobcat and I want him there for a long time!
I have never been more excited or hopeful for the future of Texas State football than I am now. I really hope that I will get a chance to see a few games this year and watch him take us to the next level!
Here is a great recap of the introductory press conference, courtesy of TexasStateBobcats.com.
I mentioned Coach Withers’ enthusiasm, commitment, leadership, and his desire. This video brought to us by JMU shows excactly why I’m so pumped about the future of Bobcat football with Coach Withers at the helm!
Heres to more parties in the endzone next year!
