MLB: Houston Astros at Oakland Athletics Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Welp, the Astros are officially on a losing streak after losing 4 in a row to Chicago and the A’s. While you know that the tools are there for them to bounce back, and they will bounce back, it’s always disheartening watching your favorite team go through a slump. Let’s hope they can shower it off, get back out there, and bring home a series split over the next couple of days.

Until then let’s do some potluck. As always, if anyone has anything to contribute just let me know! Here are the rules:


  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.
