Jeff Luhnow’s third year | Parson’s value | Texans lose to Raiders


Houston Astros

  • Evan Drellich (Houston Chronicle) on Jeff Luhnow entering his 3rd year.

The rare occasion the Astros have something to celebrate is when you can see the emotion in Jeff Luhnow. The team’s general manager is, by nature, a rational and composed man.

He watches games with the rest of the front office, whoever may be on hand, from a box at Minute Maid Park. David Stearns, the team’s assistant general manager, is right by his side.

Houston Rockets

If Chandler Parsons was offended, he did not show it. He even repeated the story.

He had been told in Taipei his nickname there, “Gao Fu Shuai,” translates to “Tall, rich and handsome.” But as soon as he was given that compliment, it came with a question asking if he could claim the rich part with his modest contract.

Houston Texans

Case Keenum was surprised. So was Matt Schaub. Reliant Stadium fans were stunned. Gary Kubiak thought everything about his shocking move made sense. Schaub, a former starting quarterback turned backup, replaced Keenum, a former third-stringer turned starter, with two minutes, 26 seconds left in the third quarter of the Texans’ 28-23 loss to the Oakland Raiders on Sunday at Reliant.
