Joel Blank: Are the Astros poised to be the Golden State Warriors of baseball?

The Warriors are definitely the gold standard for dynasties in professional sports right now, but the Astros certainly have the talent on the field and in front office to eventually be in that conversation. Of course, Houston needs to win another ring this season to have a serious discussion about this, but I wouldn't bet against them.

The Astros are loaded with Carlos Correa, Lance McCullers, and Alex Bregman all under 25 years old. Plus, the minor league system has several high-end players like Kyle Tucker and Forrest Whitley just waiting to get to the big leagues to make a name for themselves. Don't be surprised if the Astros become the Warriors of baseball sooner than later.

This week, we react to Laremy Tunsil's absence from Houston Texans OTAs and wonder if he really loves football or if he just loves what football provides him. Tunsil was given more money in the off-season after reworking his contract, and this is coming off a season when Tunsil was only supposed to miss four or five games after suffering a thumb injury in October. But Tunsil missed the rest of the season, which had many fans and media scratching their heads.

Finally, because of Tunsil's apparent disinterest in being with the team, it might be time for the Texans to trade Tunsil, and get something in return before likely cutting him next off-season.

Check out the video to watch the full conversation.
