TWEET OF THE DAY
ROSTER MOVES AND OTHER NEWS

In case you missed it yesterday, I posted my 2015 Bobby Awards for outstanding Astros minor league performances (and some other quirky awards). Even if you did read it yesterday, I added one (scroll to the very bottom of the post) that I had inadvertently forgotten about. (Thanks to Jason Schwartz for jogging my feeble memory!) And to Derek Fisher for forgetting this ... mea culpa, mea maxima culpa!
