Bayou City Headlines: Rockets Supporting Cast And Texans’ Embarrassing Loss


Houston Astros

  • Ray Kuhn (Climbing Tal’s Hill) on if Drew Stubbs is an option for the Astros.

Now Stubbs might not be an exciting option, or even a difference maker, but he could be a solid contributor. Stubbs could be a low risk and low cost addition who brings some upside. The same skill set that made Young an attractive option to the Astros, also works in Stubbs’ favor. The 29-year old outfielder brings a solid power/speed combination and also has a 20/20 season under his belt (22 HR, 30 SB in 2010).

  • John McClain (Houston Chronicle) on the descent towards the #1 pick.

After what transpired at Reliant Stadium on Sunday, you won’t have to use your imagination to hear commissioner Roger Goodell pronounce: “With the first pick in the 2014 draft, the Houston Texans select … “ The last time that happened was 2006, when outgoing commissioner Paul Tagliabue disclosed the Texans’ selection: “Mario Williams, defensive end, North Carolina State.”
