*Tyler Heineman highlights the Astros' depth behind the plate, and is slated to start 2014 at Corpus.

*Jesse Crain is at least two weeks away from throwing off a mound, any mound. 

*Quad Cities got their championship rings.

*Brad Peacock has a new changeup.

*At the end of this dumb Bill Madden piece on Barry Bonds and Pete Rose, a rival GM told Madden that George Springer was the best player in the minors.
