While You Were Drinking: Memorial Day Weekend Edition

Here's the Tuesday Morning Hot Links to help you catch up...

*Conrad Gregor hit a three-run go ahead homer for Quad Cities, his first HR of the season, on Saturday night. His dad caught the ball.

*The Chronicle's Randy Harvey has an answer for the Astros' "Radical Ways."

*Robbie Grossman has a new name, and no, it's not Bob.

*Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said that Dallas Keuchel was just an average pitcher ("I saw average stuff. We didn't swing the bats very good. At some point you've got to stop giving credit to average pitchers."), so Bo Porter called the Mariners' clubhouse (McClendon wasn't there). Maybe he wasn't impressed by Keuchel kicking a ball directly to first base.

*Carlos Rodon just might be looking for Gerrit Cole money ($8m), and Scott Boras predictably is not a fan of capping spending limits on the draft.

*Jon Singleton's Twitter feed from last night might get him in trouble.

*Hunter Pence lost his scooter.
