Saturday Morning Link Dump

*FanGraphs just projected a 75-87 season for the Astros in 2015.

*A.J. Hinch is one of the reasons Luke Gregerson signed with Houston. And, ultimately, the Astros added Gregerson and Neshek for less than Andrew Miller and David Robertson.

*Neshek's contract:
2015: $5.5m; 2016: $6.5m; 2017: $6.5m option or $500,000 buyout, but can get to $7.5-8.5m based on games finished.

*"Thank you. Thank you, man." -Brent Strom to Jim Crane

*Luke Gregerson is (possibly) your new closer. Or Qualls. Who knows.

*Palm Beach County is reconsidering a deal to build the Astros and Nationals a new Spring Training facility.

*Jose Altuve will play winter ball for Magallanes in the Venezuelan Winter League.

*Wilton Lopez signed a minor-league deal with Toronto.

Should have noted that this record places them at the bottom of the division and the worst record in the American League.

So according to FanGraphs, the Astros are not going to be a ton better than the Rangers.
