The Western Conference Finals are finally upon us and Rockets fans need to help the team capitalize on having home-court advantage. Houston fans need to show up early, be loud, and prove to the world that H-Town is a basketball city. The crowd needs to make Golden State feel as uncomfortable as possible, and give the Rockets a legitimate edge at home.

MLB Network's Jon Heyman is reporting that starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi and the Astros have agreed on a 2-year year contract with a 3rd-year player option. Odorizzi is 30 years old with a 3.92 career ERA. This signing seems to indicate Framber Valdez will miss significant time with a fractured left ring finger. But overall, the Astros rotation is looking good with the addition of Odorizzi, and hopefully Valdez will return to the rotation at some point this season.
