According to the Houston Chronicle, the Astros and Randy Wolf are close to working out an extension. Wolf, who is 12-12 with a 4.30 ERA, has done a great job for the Astros. He is just thirty-two, and will likely receive a three year extension making at least 8.5 million dollars. The Astros will likely sign Wolf. He has expressed his interest in resigning and Ed Wade would love to have a veteran like Wolf at the bottom half of the rotation.
If the Astros can sign Wolf and Ben Sheets, they would definitely be in contention in 2009.
