Monday Morning Hot Links

Between the final exams approaching and a weekend retreat I was a part of located in the middle of nowhere, I have watched one Astros game in the last 7 days. Also a big reason why I have missed a couple days of posts. With that being said, I'm here now telling you what I've heard! It's going to be quick, but it's going to be nice a nice transition to my full return Wednesday.

The Astros won on Sunday Night. The box score looked a little like hits:
George Springer:

Chirinos: 1-2, HR, 3 RBIs
Gurriel: 1-4, RBI
Miley: 5.2 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K
Pressly: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

As always, the full box score can be found here.

A weekend series recap can kind of be found here.

The Astros and Angels will be playing with 26 guys this weekend for the Mexico series.

Jake Kaplan shares why bullpen depth is a bit of a problem for the Astros.

The Crawfish Boxes have the Astros-Twins series preview up and ready for the work week which means it more Marwin time!

If anyone actually owns ESPN+, I am assuming there is an article about Wade Miley in here.

10 year olds are out here changing the world and saving lives while the rest of us read these Hot Links. To be fair, an admirable 2nd place.

Meanwhile, on the other coast of this country, Idaho is doubling down on its starchy brand by having people pay united states money to spend the night inside a massive potato.

No On This Day in Baseball today, because I am crunched for time :/

Marwin seems to be having quite a battle getting up to speed in Minny - hopefully he’ll go on a tear after we finish up with them this week.
