Sunday Morning Hot Links

*Making a start for the sore-hamstringed Mike Fiers, Francis Martes struggled yesterday against the Marlins.

*Brian McTaggart has a really good interview with Jeff Luhnow.

*The Astros reassigned pitchers Edison Frias, Aaron West, Brian Holmes, Cy Sneed and catcher Garrett Stubbs to minor-league camp this morning.

*Jeff Bagwell arrived in West Palm Beach as a guest instructor for the Astros and has nice things to say:
We're going to hit a ton. We can run, we have power, we have a great bench. If our starters stay healthy, we're going to be in good shape.

*Colin Moran is making a statement this Spring.

*NJ.com says the Yankees were scouting Joe Musgrove on Friday.

*Geoff Blum says that the rotation is still the biggest question mark.

*Brendon McCurry - who was suspended for 50 games after testing positive for Methamphetamine - says that he took Excedrin Extra Strength, Afrin nasal spray, and Claritin-D.

*The Astros have the least amount of dead money in baseball.

*I wrote about the five (six) worst seasons in Astros' history.

*Brandon McCarthy is part-owner of a soccer team. Which reminds me that you need to read this piece on Mike Piazza owning a soccer team in Italy.

Astros' dead money is just with Singleton, but they do not have the least amount of dead money in baseball. There are 19 teams with dead money, so there are 11 teams with no dead money.
