Are you ready for J.J. Watt’s Charity Classic on Saturday? J.J. Watt is. And he’s got a rad new glove to bring out to Minute Maid Park.
The Houston Texans have agreed to contracts with their fourth and fifth round picks on Friday, the team announced.
The Houston Astros lost 6-3 to the Seattle Mariners on Thursday Night. But the night was a huge win for one Astros fan battling terminal cancer. Dillon asked Altuve to hit him a home run. Altuve, tempered the young boys expectations, telling him that he hit one last night, so it might not happen. Dillon then told Altuve he’d do it.
The Houston Astros’ mascot Orbit has become the best pre-game, during game, and rewatchable on the internet mascot in Major League Baseball (probably sports). When I go to Astros games, I always make sure to get there earlier enough to enjoy the antics of their Mascot. He does a tremendous job.
J.J. Watt released his official rosters for his annual J.J. Watt Charity Classic softball game. The game being held on May 14th at Minute Maid Park will feature Houston Texans offensive players vs. Houston Texans defensive players.
The Houston Texans made six draft picks over the weekend, filling holes at wide receiver and offensive line as well as adding a safety, defensive tackle and a running back. The Texans also spent Sunday signing a lot of undrafted guys to their roster. Houston is a town that understands you can find gold after the draft (see: Arian Foster).
The Houston Texans have some priorities for the second day of the NFL Draft. They filled a hole with wide receiver Will Fuller on Thursday but they have a few holes still to plug on Friday.
There are four positions you should think about when looking at the big board for the Texans that they might take on Friday.
Moving up one spot in the first round might not seem like it was necessary, considering only one of the three wide receivers the Texans were targeting had been taken, but the Texans wanted Fuller and they didn’t want him getting away.
Jose Altuve is convinced the struggling Houston Astros are about to get as hot as he is. Altuve opened the game with his third leadoff homer of the season, doubled twice and scored three runs to help the Astros avoid a sweep with a 7-4 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday night.
