TONY SIPP RUMORS & GOSSIP

Powered by Castro and Krauss homers, Astros beat Orioles in series finale

Tony Sipp said he didn’t feel all that great Sunday afternoon, which makes you wonder just how the other relievers have felt lately. The newest member of the Astros, Sipp’s not a complicated pitcher: fastball, slider, an occasional change-up. He’s a lefty, but he can handle righthanded batters too.
