Anthony Rendon may have given my favorite quote of the year

Anthony Rendon is from Texas. I really love Texans:

“How many games left?” said second baseman Anthony Rendon when asked by a reporter if he was worried. “I feel like y’all are the only ones worried about us. Don’t worry about us. Y’all worry about y’all selves. We’ll be alright.”

As our Drew Silva just put it:

In other news, you’d know if Rendon was from West Virginia and not Texas if he said “All ya’ll” instead of “y’all selves.” Subtle regional difference regarding the second person plural collective, each considered acceptable in proper discourse depending on where you are.

Astros starter Collin McHugh will be placed on the 10-day injured list due to discomfort in his right elbow, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. The Astros recalled Brady Rodgers from Triple-A Round Rock.

McHugh, 31, has struggled to a 6.04 ERA with a 48/16 K/BB ratio in 44 2/3 innings across eight starts and two relief appearances. If the elbow injury is really an elbow injury and not just an excuse for the Astros to give McHugh a reprieve, this could be bad news.

Rodgers, 28, posted a 3.22 ERA with 32 strikeouts and 16 walks in 44 2/3 innings in the minors this season. He had a cup of coffee with the Astros in 2016, yielding 14 runs in 8 1/3 innings. Here’s hoping his latest stint goes a bit better than that.
