Monday Morning Hot Links

Got an important project to finish up today #InRealLife so these Hot Links are going to go quick.

Astros won and Justin Verlander looks like he's ready for October.

Speaking of JV, he just keep accruing milestones.

J.D. Davis and A.J. Reed are going to have to find somewhere else to hit now, because the Astros are cutting ties with the Fresno Grizzlies.

Lance McCullers should be a go for October.

Nelson Cruz, Astro in 2019?

It's Childhood Cancer Awareness Week for the Houston Astros, and a special guest will be singing the National Anthem tonight to kick things off.

Kyle Tucker is back in Houston, but don't expect him to see playing time.

Alex Bregman was not happy Arizona did not draft him #1. I bet Arizona isn't too happy either.

Get your rings tonight! Also, check out the rest of the 2018 giveaways.

It's Framber, Cole, Keuchel against Seattle this week.

I'm not saying it's impossible. The Rays are still in the hunt.

It's Rookie Prank SZN.

Enjoy some Funny Wildlife Furtography^tm.
