Tuesday Morning Link Dump

Off-day for the Astros today, which is like being able to play with your presents until 10am and then getting told to put them up until December 27. MLB is dumb.

*Cleveland.com: "Keuchel is a quality pitcher, so he deserves props for his role in the outcome. But the Indians bear some responsibility for making it too easy on him."

*Terry Francona: "A lot of nights, we'd be sitting here saying: 'He had a great game that was a win.' But their guy was good, too. There wasn't a whole lot of offense going on."

*ESPN: Still making short jokes about Altuve!

*Peacock and Fields are still rehabbing.

*Randy Harvey: Astros moving closer to respectability

*Wandy Rodriguez signed a minor-league deal with the Rangers

Keuchel still isn't getting his props. That was his pitching skill at work, not a failing by the Tribe.

Absolutely infuriating was Rick Sutcliffe's unfocused, mumbling commentary. He actually said that the Astros' trading of Michael Bourn and Hunter Pence could be to blame for them being bad for ten years. Sure. Because they were about to win a PENNANT when they were dealt.

What an idiot. ESPN employs this guy?

At least we didn't have to listen to Richard Justice shooting his mouth off about how this team needs a player like Brad Ausmus or Adam Everett!

Nothing was worse than hearing that guy talk about how those tragic wastes of a baseball uniform were valuable and important pieces that actually help win.

In the meantime, I can handle ANY other jackhole in the media!

Grantland says "Houston Doesn't Suck" ...so that's nice.
