Friday Morning Hot Links

The Wife and I will be at the Astros game tonight to watch Oberholtzer pitch Correa's home debut. If you see me, holla at me.

*On that note, the Astros are hoping Correa's arrival will mean a boost in ticket sales.

*The Astros and Rockets are suing Comcast over how they handled CSN Houston. Here are more details from Houston Press.

*Lots of signings, or reports of signings, and one number trickling in to our 2015 Draft page.

*The Astros and 37th overall pick Daz Cameron are seemingly close to a $4m deal - which would be about $2.3m over the slot value for 1-37, meaning the Astros need to save that money somewhere else in the first ten rounds. In that link you also find that Heyman is reporting Mark Appel may need "a change of scenery."

*Luhnow said "it's too early to tell" if the Astros messed up by taking Appel over Kris Bryant.

*Quad Cities' Jacob Nottingham just might be the Astros' top catching prospect

*Astros picks Riley Ferrell and Thomas Eshelman are projected to be the 2nd- and 3rd-most valuable college pitchers in the draft, respectively.

*Awww, Erik Bedard retired.
