The Astros Need To Sign J.J. Watt

Well, the national media has finally figured out that the Astros aren't going to be a winning team this next season. In fact, they are bashing the Astros for their lack of payroll. I hope that they understand that we are doing rebuilding from the ground floor up. Why be a team that spends $100 Million and wins 70 games? That is called the Chicago Cubs. Anyways, with our lack of power that is on the Astros roster, the display that J.J. Watt put on in BP, the 'stros need to sign him for at least half a season.

Texans defensive end J.J. Watt took batting practice with the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park on Friday.
You can probably guess what happened next, because we wouldn’t have written this had he solely worked on moving the runner over from second to third with less than two outs.
Yes, J.J. Watt went yard.
Five times.
Watt, a right-handed hitter, had three of his five home runs hit a facade in left field, according to the Texans’ PR staff. Another struck a billboard in left.

Hell, those 5 yard shots might be 5th on the Astros roster at the end of the season.

Why not? Now that the Astros are in the American League he doesn't have to play in the field.
