Astros Crawfish Boil: March 1, 2024

David Hensley | Photo by Megan Briggs/ Welcome to the weekend Boil. So, I heard somebody say that Alex Bregman and Kyle Tucker will soon receive contract offers. I also heard that Bregman and Tucker are waiting for said contract offers. Prioritizing these two, plus Framber Valdez, is a big question moving forward as Houston continues to push on (and soon maybe, past) the luxury tax threshold.

Yankees 0, Marlins 0: Spring training baseball!

Yankees 0, Marlins 0: Spring training baseball!

Photo by New York Yankees/ Not much happened down in Tampa on Thursday night. Every time you go to a ballgame, you have a chance to see something you’ve never seen before. I’m not going to say that today’s result was unique, but for the 8,361 people at Steinbrenner Field, it’s something you don’t see very often. The Yankees were held scoreless, but so were the Marlins, and in fine spring training form, today’s game ended in a 0-0 draw. One thing I really like about pitching prospect Clayton Beeter is how quickly he works. I was unable to watch this one...

Graham Ashcraft makes spring debut as Reds play host to Dodgers under the Goodyear lights

Photo by Carmen Mandato/ Can Doug start the season...on the good foot? Graham Ashcraft was felled by a toe last season, and the toe bothered him enough into the offseason that he needed a steel plate installed to truly fix it. If it’s truly fixed, though, perhaps we’ll see the Graham who started the 2023 season with 6 starts of 2.00 ERA ball, or even the one who finished the season on a tear (2.58 ERA in 76.2 IP over his final 12 GS of the season). We’re just going to ignore what happened in between. Why not? Ashcraft will make his 2024 Cactus League debut tonight...
