Friday Morning Hot Links

Want to sound knowledgeable about the Astros in your office Water Closet?

*Czech out the new Astros Boxes podcast, deftly titled, "You're My Boy, McHugh!"

*Springer's grandparents were at the game last night. Before the game Springer said of them, "They'll probably be in their glory tonight," a phrase of which I have never before heard.

*Within that link we also find that Matt Albers hasn't pitched because his right shoulder is stiff, and may end up on the DL, and Scott Feldman played catch yesterday for the first time since landing on the DL.

*Mike Foltynewicz is working on the command of his curve and changeup. On his slow start to the season: I have no idea why, but my entire professional career the first two or three outings aren't very pretty. I'll pitch well in the spring, but those first few have always been a little bit of a struggle.

*Check out this video from of Jerome Williams playing catch with a young Mariners fan.

*District Judge Keith Elkins is encouraging Galveston PD and Brandon Backe to come to a settlement as risk of a hung jury increases.

*The Sugar Land Skeeters will be able to stream home games through ESPN3. How's that for a slap in the face?

*Reid Ryan's niece is playing softball for Rutgers.
