Astros Crawfish Potluck: August 10th, 2019

Start your weekend by telling us the best Astros links around

MLB: Houston Astros at Baltimore Orioles Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Hey everyone, contrary to some rumors you may have heard last week, I definitely did go on vacation and am definitely not still writing here due to court order. A big thanks to everyone who covered for me last week, which I probably should have noted on Monday’s boil, but here we are. Also, the Astros haven’t lost since I returned from vacation so I’ll have to tell my wife that that’s it for summer vacations since the team needs me.

Anyways, just a heads up, I’m thinking about returning to the regular format for the boil on Saturday since there hasn’t been a ton of participation after we implemented the potluck. I’ll give it another couple of weeks so if you enjoy the potluck format, be sure and post your link in the comments so others can read it. If not you’ll just have to go back to taking my word for it, and nobody should have to live like that.

PS: I’m totally stealing hatter’s “how this works” section due to its majestic simplicity and truths.


  1. You, the well traveled and informed TCB reader, find an Astros or MLB or general baseball article or news story on the interwebz.
  2. Post the story and link in the comments.
  3. ??????

I want a good turnout and We all want to read stuff that other people are finding, so let’s get cracking.

I’ll update the body text below with the story links you submit and credit the user who brought it to Show and Tell.
