The Morton (un)signing is my most disappointing Astros experience in the last 4 or 5 years.  With each starting pitcher tweak and strain this spring training, it's all the more disappointing...
I miss Charlie and I wish we had him back right now. Having said that, I think the Astros are smart. I think there’s enough in his medicals that they thought the risk was just too great. At least that is the only way I can make sense of the decision to let him go. The proof will be in the pudding and time will tell. If he’s on the DL have the year it’ll prove to have been a good move by the Astros. If he wins 15 games then……

We were not going to guarantee two years. Neither would you.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

Agreed.  They know more than we do, and I guess it was health concerns, but man I'm gonna miss that guy.
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

The wildest part is that Morton signed a relatively reasonable deal that left many here lamenting that the Astros didn’t match, yet the contract was the largest FA contract doled out in Rays history.

Yeah, I know...  I get the sneaky suspicion that the Astros will be shown to have been prudent, prescient, smart and fiscally correct about CFM before his two years are up. My disappointment is a reflection of his past performance and how much I like watching him throw his nasty filth. It was the right move but I just don’t like it for non-logical reasons.
Another trenchant comment by a jealous lesser intellect.

I know what you mean. Over the last two years, I don’t know that I’ve felt prouder for any other Astros player than I have for CFM. Dude had been through a lot in his career and came out the other side on top in game 7 of the WS. He’s a champ on and off the field.

CFM throwing unhittable filth the last three innings was one of the most thrilling things I've ever seen.

Seeing him come to bat in the top of the 9th was the most excited I've ever been to see a pitcher hit.
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

Greatest caught looking in Astros history.

I know I've been spoiled the past few years with the 'Stros ability to hang on to good "glue" players.   However I really hate to see Marwin and CFM go.  Probably my two favorite players during that time..

Morton looked pretty good today in his second Spring start. Meanwhile Bregman apparently came out after making an early throw across to first and Chirinos came out after getting plunked.

Chron says "back stiffness" for Bregman.  Not good news, but better than elbow.

Sure, because back stiffness didn’t derail Correa at all last year.

I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing AstroTurf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, torture of Bud Selig.

Derek Fisher injured his left shoulder and was removed from today's game after trying to make a diving catch.

ETA:
Later reported as precautionary measure. Day to day.

Correa a late scratch from today's game with neck stiffness.

Let's hope stiffness is very different than discomfort.

Correa's stiffness has now turned into discomfort. Questionable to start the opener.

Daniella really needs to go easier on him.
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it
Truth isn't easy, the easy part's shit

Thanks Sphinx.  That made me laugh.
