You give him the "qualifying offer", which I think is 17M for 1 year, if he takes it that's ok, but when he rejects it the Stros get an extra draft pick after the 1st round.

I would not extend him a qualifying offer.  I let him walk.
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

That seems to be the thinking of several people here, but I'll be shocked if Luhnow doesn't extend him the QO.

Oh, I’d give him the QO. I don’t want to pass up that draft pick.

I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing AstroTurf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, torture of Bud Selig.

Is there a limit to QO's that a team can give?

Anything up to and including the Qwan.
