This isn't how you treat your franchise, either.

Bags should talk to them and see if he can re-structure his deal to maybe get a few more years guaranteed and a lower annual salary. $17M for his mediocrity is killing the franchise. Just imagine if they'd had a modicum of hitting last year. They could have won the WS....

Nah, can you honestly see him playing beyond the next year or two? If I were the 'Stros GM, I'd just suck up the hit, admit that they won't be able to improve the team this year, and clear the contract as soon as i can. It's not like they were dreadful last year.
