Dallas Keuchel will miss his upcoming start, though he isn’t anticiapted to miss much more.
The Astros on Saturday placed the left-handed ace on the 10-day disabled list with a pinched nerve in his neck, the team announced.

From 2006 to 2008, an exhaustive search was launched in Congaree — the Ivory-billed’s distinctive double-knock had been reportedly heard — which has thousands of acres of thick cedar swamps and old-growth bottomland forest, prime Ivory-billed habitat. Exactly 8,893 official survey hours later , no conclusive evidence was found.

What does that mean? It’s honestly hard to know.
