Astros | Team active in trade talks, but no deals imminent

Alyson Footer, of, reports the Houston Astros have been active in trade talks with the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline approaching, but no deals appear to be imminent, according to Astros general manager Tim Purpura. The GM said the club has both made and received trade proposals. "It's back and forth," said Purpura, who is interested in players who can help his club this year and in 2008. However, the GM also said there wasn't any urgency on the club's part to trade a particular player away. "It's a matter of what value can you get for the players you have, particularly players you have control over for more than a year," said Purpura.
