It is a fine day as the ground was nourished by the salty nutrition of Rangers fan tears...
*Read (Not Hank) Aaron's post on why Roy Oswalt deserves your write-in vote.
*Collin McHugh left yesterday's game after 6IP and 85 pitches with a "baby blister" on his middle finger.
*Cool graphic by the LA Times comparing the Dodgers' payroll to each of the 29 other teams. The Dodgers are paying $200m more this year than the Astros, and $17m more for their starting rotation than the Astros are spending on their own team. (Note: Not an indictment of the Astros. That's just an unbelievable amount of money.)
*Baseball America named the Hooks as its 6th-most talented minor-league team.
*After the win over the Rangers yesterday, Gil LeBreton does an autopsy of 2015.
*Former Astro Anthony Bass minimized the damage for the Rangers.
Coming from a last-place team to a team that was right in the playoff hunt definitely rejuvenated me.
*Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said that you could always count on taking two of three from the Astros.
