The rich get richer with the Astros and Yordan Alvarez

The Astros got immediate results after they called up one of their top prospects, Yordan Alvarez, from Triple-A.

In just his second at-bat, Alvarez blasted a home run that helped the Astros secure a series win against the Orioles on Sunday afternoon.

The Astros look to have plenty of talent waiting in the wings, and if Houston continues to deal with injuries, don't expect those issues to slow them down. This team just keeps winning.

ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio talks with Chris Simms about the latest information regarding Deshaun Watson and the cases against him. Lawyer Tony Buzbee told Fox 26's Mark Berman that a settlement is not close to happening, and the women that spoke with the NFL did not feel respected.

So what do we make of this? Florio's opinion is that Buzbee is making these comments to put pressure on Deshaun Watson and the NFL, because stirring up this "hornet's nest" will blow back on Watson and the NFL, not Buzbee and his clients. Buzbee must believe that stirring the pot could help nudge the cases toward resolution in a more timely manner.

Finally, Florio spells out how the game is played with lawyers. Meaning, Rusty Hardin and his team are going to make this process as uncomfortable as possible for all the accusers. According to Florio, that's right out of the legal playbook if such a thing existed.

Check out the video to hear Florio's full take on the latest information.
