Durrett also has the quotes from Michael Young about homosexuals in the locker room where Michael Young does that thing he does where he says all the right things and cartoon hearts shoot out of beat reporters' heads.

Anthony Andro has a story about Nolan Ryan joining the Asros, where he is expected to immediately step into the number two spot in the rotation.

Gerry Fraley speculates that Nolan Ryan's new job may give new meaning to the intrastate rivalry but probably not because the Astros are still terriblle.

Fraley also has a story about Pudge Rodriguez serving as general manager of Mayaguez, the Puerto Rican representative in the Caribbean World Series.

Richard Durrett reports that Reid Ryan is excited to have the opportunity to pick his dad's brain. In unrelated news, Roy Oswalt announced his retirement yesterday.
