Surprised this guy is #1?  Me too.  Resigning Tony Sipp is more crucial than most fans realize.  Sipp was a major contributor in the postseason and regular season.  Sipp’s 1.99 ERA over 54.1 innings pitched had a major impact in the Astros during the regular season.  He had a 1.03 WHIP and only gave up five home runs.

The Astros need a quality left-handed pitching in their bullpen if they are going to be successful in both the regular season and postseason.  Paired with Antonio Bastardo, the Astros have two relievers they can rely on.

Houston Astros need to show Tony Sipp the money.
