Tuesday Morning Link Dump

Here is what you would probably enjoy knowing on this absolutely freezing morning.

*Fantastic read from the Crawfish Boxes on the Great Delino DeShields Debate

*Baseball America wonders if the 16-30 Astros prospects in 2014 are better than the 1-15 Astros prospects in 2010.

*Jim Callis says the Correa/Appel tandem is the best hitter/pitcher prospect combo in baseball.

*Jesse Crain is about ten days away from beginning his throwing regimen

*Jim Crane told reporters in OKC that the Astros may extend their PDC with Oklahoma City (it expires following this season). Crane:
We've made it clear as an organization we'd like to own our Triple-A team, but right now there's nothing in the works. Our team is here ... We like this market. This is a great ballpark and these folks (Mandalay) do a great job.

*The Oklahoman posted an interview with Roger Clemens.

*This is what happens when Fantasy Writers don't really know much about a team.

*Bud Norris told Orioles101 that he is grateful to be in Baltimore, and "was very blessed and thankful for my time in Houston but losing 100+ games 4 seasons in a row was very hard on me, the team, coaches, and the city." (Ed. Note: Four seasons in a row?)
