Monday Morning Hot Links

Fellas I'm gonna be honest with you..it's Monday. Are they cool? Of course not! Do I have Hot Links for you to make the day suck less? Sure I guess I can try to do that. There were a lot of links yesterday and not a lot of action since, but I might be able to conjure something up.

\Nelson Cruz is the perfect fit for the Houston Astros and they should be all the way in on this signing.

\Conner Byrne from MLBTradeRumors is reporting the Dodgers want to part with Puig and the Tigers want to part with Castellanos. Astros are interested in both.

\Luhnow wants Framber Valdez and my GUY Cionel Perez has the lefties out of the pen and honestly I am super okay with this.

\Many teams are interested in Houston Astros great Mike Fiers.

\Tony Kemp just never stops being a good dude.

\Sad news as Astros superfan Eugenia Rios lost her 5 year battle with brain cancer.

\Brian McTaggart would like to answer your questions for some reason. Guess you might as well ask him something.

\ASTROS HALL OF FAME BALLOT TRACKER (through 48 ballots):
Roger Clemens - 70.8%
Andy Pettite - 16.7%
Jeff Kent - 10.4%
Billy Wagner - 6.3%
Lance Berkman - 4.2%
Roy Oswalt - 2.1%
Miguel Tejada - 0%
Rick Ankiel - 0%
Detailed spreadsheet with additional info can be found here.

\Somebody actually pitched this idea at a board meeting. Even more surprisingly, it LANDED.

\A podcast might have ended up finding the murderer from a 36 year old case.

Here concludes the end of the post. The Internet has been scoured and all hyperlinks have been corralled. Thank you for spending your time here at astroscounty.com. Toodles!

I’ll fix this. Sign Nelson Cruz. He replaces Gattis. Sign Michael Brantley. Brantley has said he’s open to playing some 1B. Between him and Yuli, that’s a lot of roster versatility. Doesn’t quite replace Marwin, but it helps. Plus, he bats LH. Trade for Madison Bumgarner. You’re welcome. Enjoy your holidays, everyone.

The Nelson Cruz article makes plenty of good points. Sure would be nice to have the "Boom Stick" in the middle of our lineup.
