Dave Clark finds a job | Dwight Howard and CP3 together? | Texans help senior citizens votes
- Brian McTaggart (MLB.com) on Astros farmhand Alex Sogard.
Sogard, a left-handed relief pitcher who split 2013 between Triple-A Oklahoma City and Double-A Corpus Christi, hopes to be able to re-join those guys at some point next year. But first he’s pitching in the Arizona Fall League, where he is 2-1 with a 1.59 ERA in eight games, including one spot start for Peoria.

- Jason Friedman (Rockets.com) on the Rockets loss in LA last night.
I’m not quite sure where to begin when assessing the first half of tonight’s game, but I’m rather certain one shouldn’t start by talking about the defense. Actually, check that because that’s precisely where the conversation begins. There’s just not much to be said about it other than, “There wasn’t any.” The Clippers entered the game with the league’s worst defense and they certainly lived up to that ranking by allowing Houston to score 41 points in the second quarter and 66 overall in the opening half.
