Here's Reid Laymance conveying some information regarding CSN Houston: Adam Silver on CSN Houston: "we're studying it closely and working with Tad (Brown) and hoping to work toward a resolution" — Reid Laymance (@ReidLaymance) April 24, 2014 Now if you're like me, and don't watch much of anything besides baseball, you had to Goog...

Thursday Morning Hot Links
Here's what you need to know around the water cooler* this morning -Jim Callis called the Astros "the most secretive team" he's ever encountered as far as tipping their draft checks go. He also says the Astros would likely prioritize their 1-1 pick in June in this manner: California HS LHP Brady Aiken, East...

Fascinating look at MLB fans by zip code
The NY Times has an interactive map showing MLB loyalty by zip code, as determined by Facebook. Not even going to pull anything from it - just click it, and help me plan how to raid south Texas.

Is Mark Appel injured?
Last night at Inland Empire, Lancaster pitcher and 2013 1-1 pick Mark Appel didn't make it out of the 3rd inning. There was a member of Baseball Prospectus' scouting team - @Rontrarian - at the game who tweeted out some troubling things. Such as...

From the Office of the County Clerk - G22: Astros @ Mariners
Jarred Cosart (1-2, 7.36) vrs Chris Young (0-0, 3.27) Both Mr Cosart and Mr Young were coming off short outings in their last starts - 1/3 of an inning and 3 innings respectively.  And because it was the Game of the Day, I watched it!!  Well, the first three innings, anyhow - then this whole "employment" thing got in the way.  Sigh.  And stop me if you have heard this before... the Astros were cruising until they turned it over to the bullpen, but the Ene...

Jury deliberating Backe case
A jury is in its second day of deliberations in the Brandon Backe's lawsuit against Galveston police. We took a look at the whole incident earlier this month, if you want to catch up. Or you can read a comment from "whyrepublicans" at the bottom ...

We should maybe pay attention to Gonzalo Sanudo right now
Who? Gonzalo Sanudo. Sanudo came to the organization in March of last year from the Twins in what was, at the time, an exchange of low-level, non-descript minor leaguers. The Astros gave up Mike Kvasnicka, a very disappointing former 1st round pick who seemably couldn't hit at the low-A level. So why pay attention? Because over his last 40 regular-season innings, dating back to July 13, 2013. Sanudo has been putting up numbers that would make video ...

Admiring Collin McHugh
Collin McHugh pitched a masterpiece last night. Collin McHugh is 27 years old, and moved his career record to 1-8, lowering his career ERA to 7.83 in the process. Astros fans would be foolish to expect this kind of performance going forward, but that does not mean we can't enjoy his night for what it was. McHugh's final line last was 6.2 IP, 12 K, 0 BB, 0 Runs. He gave up only 3 hits. He had a swinging strike percentage of 18%, which is currently the highest among starting pitchers...

PreStros Morning Report: April 22
Late start this morning, seeing as how that's two after-midnight games in a row (and my daughter woke up about ten minutes after last night's game ended). So let's get this on: TL;DR *Astros affiliates go 4-0 on the day; Composite record: 44-31. *OKC defeated Memphis behind David Martinez's strong start and Jon Singleton's 8th homer. *Corpus' bullpen held Midland scoreless for 8.2IP, winning on a 12th inning walk-off by Nolan Fontana.  *Josh H...

From the Office of the County Clerk - G21: Astros @ Mariners
Collin McHugh (0-0, 0.00; Career: 0-8, 5.86) v Erasmo Ramirez (1-2, 7.50) Boom Boom!!  The Astros dip into their lucky-pitcher-grab-bag and draw a winner.  Collin McHugh, blogger extraordinaire deservedly gets his first major-league win by throwing 6 2/3 scoreless.  Second 2-game win streak of the year!  To the recap!! On the Mound * Collin McHugh is the story of the ni...

Preview of G21: Astros @ Mariners
The Astros will ride a W1 into a game for the first time since April 13 to face the 7-12 Mariners. The Astros won 7-2 last night, which not only tied a season-high in runs scored but also set a season-high in margin of victory. The Mariners allowed 7+ runs for the fourth time in their last five games. The Astros have won four straight games at Safeco Field. The last time the Astros won four straight road games against a single opponent was May 31-June 3, 2013 when they swept a four-game serie...

Here's what you need to know while we try not to doze off at work from staying up until midnight last night celebrating (quietly) the win over Seattle. *Jim Crane would like a resolution to CSN Houston within 30 days. *

The One Where Ken Hoffman Spouts Nonsense
The Chronicle's Ken Hoffman has a silly notes column on a wide range of topics - from losing his driver's license to a joke about CNN - he touches briefly on the plight of the Astros and Bo Porter. Let's look...

PreStros Morning Report: April 21
TL;DR *Astros affiliates go 2-2 on the day. Organization Record: 40-31 *Memphis surges late against Zeid and Stoffel for a 7-4 win over OKC. *Brady Rodgers dealt, and Preston Tucker hit a two-run homer amid a 5-run 3rd inning in Corpus' 5-2 win over Midland. *Lance McCullers gets nine groundball outs and Lancaster erupts for six runs in the top of the 9th for a 9-4 win at Inland Empire. *Quad Cities got 15 hits, but fell 7-6 at Clinton. ...

DDJ is Famous, Worldwide
Delino DeShields Jr is famous, even in the Southern Hemisphere. As an aside (and I have posted a heap of unmitigated crap already today), I used to play cricket, the Australasian analogue of baseball.  I was 16, playing in the top Secondary School co...

From the Office of the County Clerk - G20: Astros @ Mariners
Dallas Keuchel (1-1, 3.50) versus Felix Hernandez (3-0, 1.91) My first game recap, and it's a doozy.  The Astros add the scalp of King Felix to their the list of No 1 starters they have beat up on this year.  (Also on the list - in order - the new & slimmer CC Sabathia,  R.A. Dickey, Jered Weaver and Tanner "not Yu" Scheppers).  They go to 6-14 on the year, snap a 7-game losing streak, and improve to 9-4 all time at Safeco, and 7-3 all time at Safeco whilst ...

By Way of Introduction
Everyone, Now that the Green Card has been checked, the hourly rate decided, and the numbers of the Cayman Island account exchanged, I thought that I would briefly introduce myself.  Note that it will be brief, as AC is not a self-aggrandizing kind of blog.  So... brief. My name is James.  I have young kids.  I am an Astros fan, and have been since the late 1990's.  I atten...
