Off-Day Tweets And Links


Here are some tweets and links to get you through the day.

  • According to Brian McTaggart (Astros Beat Writer), the Astros have signed several more of their draft picks:

UPDATE: Astros have signed 4th round pick Conrad Gregor as well.

"General Manager Jeff Luhnow has worked to ensure the club is pointed in the right direction as it moves to recapture some of the organization’s past successes. But, truth be told, the club’s front office and scouting department began to find its footing in 2010 — almost two years before Luhnow was hired away from the St. Louis Cardinals to replace ousted GM Ed Wade."

"“That’s no fun,” Crane said Wednesday afternoon, a few hours before his team played in Seattle. “We seem to go in streaks. The pitching is good, and we can’t score any runs, and then it goes the other way. But they’re playing competitive baseball. We have been in every game for quite a while and had a little streak there (six straight wins before the current road trip), so hopefully we’ll turn it around a little quickly.”"
