As that series wrapped up Sunday, Lancaster manager Rodney Linares downplayed what Correa did a few days ago – not because it wasn’t amazing – but because the amazing has become routine.

“I see that every day,” Linares said. “I’m not surprised. … He’s probably the best player I’ve ever coached, and a couple years ago, I said that about George Springer.”

Houston Rockets

Jordan Hamilton enjoyed a solid start to the season with the Denver Nuggets, sprinkling in several strong performances while vacillating between a starting role and one that saw him come off the bench in relief. By the time January rolled around, however, Hamilton had been reduced to a bit player with the Nuggets, prompting the trade deadline deal that brought him to Houston in February. With the Rockets, a similar pattern emerged: the 23-year-old delivered quality results early on in his tenure before seeing a nearly simultaneous diminishment of both his playing time and production.

  • Stephanie Stradley (Houston Chronicle) has the answer to most things 2014 Houston Texans.

I think for a lot of fans, they are looking at the current group happily as not-Kubiak or not-Schaub, but that should not the correct reference point.

That is done, that is over–the good, the bad, and the ugly of it.

Each team is its own thing, and with the complete change in coaching and scheme, it is difficult to look at the Texans’ past to project to its future.
