Friday Morning Hot Links

*Dallas Keuchel and Collin McHugh have their Spring Training plans customized. Keuchel tends to feel worse during Spring Training because of the shock of throwing, and the Astros are still holding on to his Cy Young award.

*Optimism: what in the world is that?

*Pat Neshek had a massive piece of bone removed from the foot that bothered him all during the 2015 season. The picture is disgusting.

*Luke Gregerson already has a light oblique strain. And he's still a little salty about the addition of Ken Giles:

*Our friend Terri wrote about predictions and the Astros at the Crawfish Boxes.

*Over here, we have 2800 words on the Astros, Phil Nevin, Derek Jeter, and the 1992 Draft.

*How Channel 2 helped Billy Wagner...

*The New York Times on baseball in the Dominican Republic.

*Andrew Friedman talked about just what the hell they're doing in LA.

*How a puppy helped save Evan Marshall's life and career.

*Matthew Kory wrote about how badly you would hurt a major league team if you had to play for a week.
