ESPN Houston's The Killer B's react to the news of Deshaun Watson settling 20 of his 24 civil lawsuits on Tuesday.

Also, the guys discuss how much (if any) settling the majority of the cases will impact his looming suspension, and how a deadline may have been the catalyst to settle 20 cases. That deadline being the league reportedly suspending Watson in the coming weeks before training camp.

After Yordan Alvarez suffered an injury on Thursday from colliding into Jeremy Peña in short left field, many fans and media are questioning whether Alvarez should DH exclusively to keep injuries like this from happening.

And there's an argument being made that Yordan is better at the plate when he's playing the field.
