Houston Astros

  • Ray Kuhn (Climbing Tal’s Hill) on the boring offseason so far.

For that, we have the Hot Stove league. There are rumors to follow, debate, and discuss. Planning out next year’s team is always enjoyable. But for that to happen, we need to have rumors. And so far that has not happened. Player movement also has been at a extreme minimum.

  • Jeff Moore (MLB Prospect Watch) talks Jonathan Singleton and Joseph Amador.
  • I wrote my thoughts for Climbing Tal’s Hill on the Astros organizational All-Stars.

  Houston Rockets

  • Zach Lowe (Grantland) on the Rockets approach not being Finals-worthy.

The Rockets, really, are fine. They’re 7-4 with two max-level free agents, and they’re outscoring teams by 4.3 points per 100 possessions — the eighth-best mark in the league. That margin doesn’t peg them as legit title contenders, and it would be unrealistic to expect championship-level play this early from what remains, in the big picture, a very new roster integrating a giant and even newer centerpiece.


 Houston Texans

  • Sean Pendergast (Houston Press) on the Texans reaching the breaking point.

You’re Andre Johnson.

You get drafted in 2003 by a one year old expansion team, still in its infancy stage. You’re excited, you’re eager, and you’re hoping to be the foundational building block of something great.

But as it turns out, it’s not great. Far from it.

  • Randy Harvey (Houston Chronicle) on Gary Kubiak and the lockeroom.
  • Tania Ganguli (ESPN) on Case Keenum.
