2018 FANTASY BASEBALL TRADE FALLOUT: ASTROS PICK UP CLOSER ROBERTO OSUNA TO BOOST PLAYOFF BULLPEN

After watching the disgrace that was Ken Giles and maybe then not feeling comfortable with Hector Rodon and some ugly past experiences finishing games during his Chicago Cubs tenure, the Houston Astros made a bold move late Monday by acquiring Toronto Blue Jays troubled but talented stopper Robero Osuna.  While no one would argue the fact that Osuna is one of the very best closers in the game, he is just now getting close to coming back from a 75 game domestic violence suspension levied by Major League Baseball in an incident from earlier in the year.  As far as ability is concerned, Osuna has the good as he has logged ERA's of 2.58, 2.68, 3.38, and 2.93 since becoming a regular back in 2015 and you have to think he would be bumped ahead of Rodon as soon as he gets some outings at the major league level under his belt.  What is also interesting is that the Blue Jays will get back Giles and thus, buy low on the guy in the hopes he could be turned around as a possible saves option for 2019.
