Prosecuctors: Uresti's financial problems show he 'had motive to defraud'

Prosecuctors: Uresti's financial problems show he 'had motive to defraud'



2017-10-13T04:00:00+0000

An attorney for state Sen. Carlos Uresti filed a motion to keep federal prosecutors from presenting certain evidence against him at trial -- including his loan history. Prosecutors fired back, claiming Uresti's personal finances show he had motive to defraud people of their money by getting them to invest in a Ponzi scheme.

It's all good Houston fans. There are games where the other team has your number and they hand your A$$ to you on a silver platter. All you can do is come back and show em' who's boss in the next game. I'm rooting for you here in St. Louis. GO ASTROS!!! -A Cardinals Fan

We were never going to sweep this series. Anybody who thoughts so was delusional. There's still four games left and we only need to win two of them. That's a very achievable goal for this team so stop freaking out and acting like it's the end of the world that we lost a game in a seven game series.

Just a bad game. At least they didn't get shut out. Just gotta ride that 9th inning momentum into the 1st inning tomorrow. 9th inning looked like the 1st sign of life for the Astros. Get the bad game out of the system and move on to tomorrow. Astros still in the drivers seat.

Sooner or later the bats are gonna wake up. Pitching has been more than fine. But it would be nice to have some early run support to help em out :) #HoustonStrong

I'm an A's fan but i'm cheering for the Stros in this series. Inspite of being in the same division Astros deserve to have their moment. I would be rooting for the Yankees in a heart beat if they were playing the Angels and as far as the Rangers and Mariners I would have to see but Astros deserve to win. Yankees got Sonny Gray going tommorow someone I'm familiar with and he tends to crack when the pressure is on

Only positive I took was that maybe McHugh can get some confidence from this outing and be huge for us moving forward

We ride or die for our Stro's ...it ain't over . Yankees are going to learn the hard way not to count us out .. 💟💟 Astros .

Hopefully Hinch starts Springer, Reddick, Altuve, Correa, Gonzalez, Gurriel, McCann, Bergman, Beltran! Maybin cost us that big inning with not going harder for that ground rule double! I say start both McCann and Beltran back in NY! Let's go 'Stros! We are going to rip Gray apart! He will be knocked out by the third! We've seen his stuff multiple times from his time with the A's!

Well Astro fans, be not dismayed... yet. What we saw tonight has been a recent trend. Remember the two series with Boston... the four games at the end of the season and the four playoff games. In both series, we won the first two, got blown out in the third, and won the fourth. Remember, all we absolutely HAVE to do in New York is win one of the three. Two is better, but one will do. And Keuchel will probably go in game five. But if we lose all three in NYC, we will all enter the "Fear of the Choke", which all Houston lifers understand all too well. If the trend continues, we will come from behind to win a close game tomorrow night, then Keuchel can try to close it out on Wednesday.

To me, the Yankees just won their only game. Hope your team comes out and scores like mad tomorrow. - sincerely, A Cardinal's fan.

If McCullers can go 4-5 strong innings tomorrow then we can bring in Peacock for relief. Hopefully our offense wakes up tomorrow. It's like it's August again.

Springer batting .091 Gattis hitless Reddick hitless Marwin hitless Altuve and Correa are the only 2 that are even doing anything!

Just two bad innings everyone. Tomorrow is different day and game 4 is a different game!! We've got this 👍🏻😊👍🏻😊👍🏻😊

Sabathia’s curve ball killed us early and all game. When we had scoring opportunities the curve ball ended it. Honestly on another note I knew we would lose at least one on the road because the Yankees won’t go down in a sweep. Also our bats need to get going. They have been cold most of series.

Cameron Mabin - worst explanation of blowing a routine pop up... ever. If it was any closer, it would have hit you on the head.

First of all astros are reverting back to trying to hit the ball out of the park on every swing! Just need to choke up on the bat dink and dunks for singles and doubles until the bats heat up.....smdh

We’re gonna get them a Yanks tomorrow! Our guys can shake it off and come back tougher than ever! Let’s go ASTROS... LET’S GO! ❤️⚾️🇨🇱

I kinda had a feeling the Astros might lose tonight's game with Charlie Morton pitching. He's one of those average pitchers that a team like the Yankees can beat. Yankees have a batting average over .300 against Morton in his career with an OBP over .400 and SLG over .500. Also, CC Sabathia is hot right now.

It's all good guys, let's learn from today's game and start all over again tomorrow...we know as well as you'll know we can't win it all, but the best part is about to come...so let's flip the page and let's play some baseball ⚾️ ⚾️ ⚾️ ⚾️ ⚾️ ⚾️ tomorrow...Just remember all Houston is cheering for you to win, make us proud guys, your fans have faith in all of you...#Houstonstrong! Bring it on guys, you'll can do it 👏👏👏👏

I live in NYC and was at the game tonight. Based on the fans reactions here after the game, this series is already over in their eyes. I will be at the game again tomorrow, and I am a lifelong fan. Please. Shut. Them. Up. Please.

In McHugh's brief time back from long DL stint, it looked like he was poised to be #3. Now he's been burned, and for what? Junk innings. Let's hope this doesn't come back on 'em. Go Astros.

Why didn't they start McHugh inplace of Morton, MxHugh pitched 4 innings of not hit n run ball. Could of been a different out come n maybe a win.

I mean, I've been saying all along it'll go 6. Yankees were hyped for this game, they deserved to win it. Tomorrow is a toss up. Keuchel goes game 5, Verlander game 6 if needed. We still got this y'all.

Just something to think about for tomorrow. Sonny Gray didn't pitch all that well his last start and had a 5.65 ERA at Yankee Stadium during regular season. Altuve is batting .367 vs Gray. Beltran is batting .364 vs Gray. Bregman is 1-for-1 with 2 RBIs and a walk vs Gray. Lance McCullers has done well vs Yankees.

someone plz explain to me why morton/LMC are a better choice than peacock/mchugh. peacock has been our most consistent pitcher (with insane stats) and mchugh is nearly undefeated (17-1) in september/october as an astro. i like morton and LMC but they're #5 and #6 for me!

Houston does not run from adversity! We take every hit it gives us. That's what makes us strong. If we lose, tomorrow we come back stronger. Houston is with you all the way, Astros! #EarnIt 🤘

I wouldn't worry my fellow 'Stros fans. All our boys need to do is win 1 of 3 in New York and come home to Houston up 3-2 for games 6 and 7. Their bats will wake up, and I believe they are going to clinch at home game 6. #Earnit!

Charlie Morton did not pitch that bad....he just had bad luck. Our whole outfield has gone cold at the plate. We need more than just Altuve, Correa, Keuchel and Verlander. We win as a team.

The bats have been cold this series... it's a miracle we're up. But we can't rely on Kuechal and Verlander to bail us out, we're going to need them if we get past this series.

If we can just take 1 of 3 in NY, we'll be in prime shape coming back home. We'll be fine, can't win em all

Its ok. Just one game. They can gather themselves, rebound and comeback stronger

I saw this coming tonight, but we aren’t going to lose this series... most predictions have called Houston in 7 and that’s ok because frankly they don’t need a long break waiting on the WS... never good, imo

Let the yankees use their hot bats tonight. I would love 2 wins out of new york, but 1 win there and we get our final win in Houston. Always behind the stros.

It’s going to be tough to win with Peacock on the mound. Yankees bullpen will be well rested now. Gray can go at least 6 and Peacock most likely 4. Our bats need to come alive and find a way to grind out a win tomorrow. . Game 5 will be the key game. We have to win 1 in NY. It’s a must. On another note Mchugh looking good.

Well Astro fans, be not dismayed... yet. What we saw tonight has been a recent trend. Remember the two series with Boston... the four games at the end of the season and the four playoff games. In both series, we won the first two, got blown out in the third, and won the fourth. Remember, all we absolutely HAVE to do in New York is win one of the three. Two is better, but one will do. And Keuchel will probably go in game five. But if we lose all three in NYC, we will all enter the "Fear of the Choke", which all Houston lifers understand all too well.

Bats are cold. Their MVP hits a grand slam basically minus the wild pitch and ours strikes out with bases loaded twice lately and now a bases loaded DP 😞. Let’s wake the bats up next game

All the breaks are going the Yankees way tonight. That's ok......I didn't expect the Astros to sweep anyway!!

Go with peacock tomorrow and start back over with keuchel and verlander in Houston

Honestly I knew we might lose one on road and had a feeling it would be this one. Morton got roughed up at Boston last series. Hinch should of let McHugh start and Morton from bull pen. One loss wont hurt. Go Stros bounce back

Y'all taking like this game is over ....looks bad but you never know what can happen 2 runs here 3 runs there you never know

23 runners left on base. That's not going to get the job done. Let's hope for a big rebound tomorrow afternoon, 'cause if the Yankees win again, it will be a big momentum changer.

I know they are up 2-0 , but they need to start hitting. Unfortunately Verlander & Keuchel can't start every game . Barring a miracle comeback tonight , I'm curious to see how they will come out tomorrow

and Joe Buck with the "i dont see any video evidence to overturn the ruling on the field...." what a chump. how does that idiot have the job he does? he cant even make the proper call after seeing the reply 3 times.

Houston will win it all. They are just letting the Yankees win one home game. #Earnit #Houstonstrong #Astros #lovebaseball

I didn't see the game but was trying to follow it on the ESPN app from work, what happened in the 9th? Did NY just start walking a bunch of batters? Did they do that to get to Altuve?

I have to ask this question .. what the heck was Mayben doing on that pop up double down the left field line? Unacceptable.

Kuechal, Verlander, Altuve & Correa can't be the only ones playing ball. All the bats need to get hot! Let's go STROS!!!❤️⚾️💙

Had a bad feeling this would happen. We still got this series!!!

Good thing that are up 2-0. They have faced 3 pitcher's that were lights out down the stretch. Morton has had a very long layoff.

But they won a hot dog eating contest this afternoon. Think that might have something to do with their play tonight?

More chicken sh*t luck by the Yankees. I swear every time Joe Buck says Aaron Judge I think they must be lovers.

Astros will come back . Stay and watch! Astros will win :)

No negative comments plz... It's the 4th inning and game 3. They ain't guna win them all but they will win this series. WS bound hopefully in 6 so they can win at home...

That's why it's called "home field advantage"! Let's do this Astros!

Morton had great stuff to start. Take away that lucky homerun and a couple of cheap hits and it’s a different ballgame. He certainly didn’t deserve seven runs being charged to him.

It ain't over yet , these boys will never stop fighting....I'll keep cheering for my Stro's till the last batch . .

Scary thing is YANKEES hitting hasn't even started yet they have gotten by just barely imagine if they start clicking on all cylinders

Hinch = lets his pitching staff give up 20 runs + 20 hit by pitches + 20 walks before even warming up the bullpen. Same thing all season, every season. And to the "superfans" no one cares about you or your input. Common sense speaks wonders.

I can't watch right now. This it sounding like a repeat of the Indians collapse. Good game one. Fantastic finish of game two then the bats go silent. Come on Astros!!!

We don’t need Gattis catching during the po-season. Keep him or Beltran at DH. If you want to give McCann a break that’s why we have Centeno on the roster. Maybin hasn’t shown enough to be starting in the playoffs, keep Marwin in left. I don’t understand the moves, if anyone does please enlighten me.

Remember, the Astros were blown out in the first game in Boston..., just need to win 2. Plus, I'd rather be up 2-1 than down 1-2...

Yankees hitting hasn’t started😂🤣? The Astros have the #1 ranked hitting lineup in baseball and the most runs we’ve scored in a postseason game is 4. Wait till they wake up and start swinging the bats. Just get maybin out of there

Can anyone explain how the Astros beat the Red Sox Aces, Chris Sale and Pomeranz, two lefties, each game, got eight runs, and can't hit Sabbathia? Don't want this series to go seven games, where Sabbathia will pitch against Morton! Heaven forbid!!!

I have faith but also know a strong bullpen wins championships & we don’t have depth after 2 starters! Bound to give up a game or two with other starters & mess of relievers with no dominant closer! Issue all season & didn’t have $$ after Verlander trade & hope it doesn’t come back to bite us!

We've been in this position before against Boston no need to panic.

I don't think a win is in the cards for us tonight. We loaded the bases and then no home run to go ahead.

I wouldn't worry my fellow 'Stros fans. All our boys need to do is win 1 of 3 in New York and come home to Houston up 3-2 for games 6 and 7. Their bats will wake up, and I believe they are going to clinch at home game 6. #Earnit!

We have to find the Game 3 starter! I like Morton but not for the 3 guy. I keep preaching Lance McCullers! He needs to get he nod. Has nasty stuff. Give him the chance coach!

When all of those "seeing eye" hits started falling in and their guy hits a one-handed home run on a pitch way outside the strike zone and barely above the dirt, I knew it was going to be the Yankees night. I didn't expect the Astros to sweep anyway!!

Even if we do lose it's ok guys. The Yankees are here for a reason. We don't have to sweep to advance. Stros in 6 back in Htown and we play the cubbies so we get home field advantage and play three in a row at home 😉.

It was expected in my eyes just like they expected it in Astros territory. The boys have to acclamate to the time, weather and atmosphere, just brings excitement to tomorrow’s game! we got this Astros! ⚾️❤️⚾️❤️⚾️❤️⚾️❤️⚾️❤️

This game is over,i think the Astros have too roll the dice tomorow and start Lance McCullers and hope he accepts the challence in Yankee Stadium because Morton,McHugh and Peacock are not the answer.....if they start Peacock tomorow they are almost guranteed a loss and if they let the series get 2-2 with the Yankee bats awaking then they probably choke the series away

this is what u get for starting morton over peacock tonight.. mistake and it cost ya... u better get 1 game out of the 3 in ny

I can't still believe that they give 3 games in a row to the Yankees at home and I think we in trouble for this? If we lose this series I think is because of this

This offense better get it going soon,there is zero chance they can win this series by scoring 2 runs a game......and the bad news is they have zero pressure on them right now and they cant hit,pressure is on the Yankees,but if the Astros lose tonight and tomorow i bet those palms start to sweat...........

Morton pitching nasty. A bunt, bloop and a poke and it's 3-0. Wow. Yankees stadium is an insult to MLB.

Swing at the ball guys! What are you doing standing there for two strikes??? Several have done this already, Correa?? Geez.

4 cheap hits and it’s 3-0 SMH. Morton has pitched very well. Let’s chip away at this lead. I say 8-5 Astros and 3-0 lead. Go Stros!

Well guys, I see a pattern Astros win 1 and 2 with the same identical score. Lose game 3 in a blow out. I bet game 4 Astros will win a tight one.

3-0 Yanks. this game is over. Astros hitters cannot hit CC worth a lick or the Yanks bullpen. This is the beginning of the big collapse by the Astros #chokecity

What a blown opportunity..bases loaded..need to win this game..don't give Yankees any kind of momentum

Why is it that the Astros decide to go to sleep in game 3,look at what happened when the Boston Red Sox returned home for game 3 and the Astros have to play 2 more times in Yankee stadium

A positive mind is a terrible thing to waste. Feeling VERY OPTIMISTIC about the next three games as the YANKEES are back home in "Da Bronx." I TRULY BELIEVE NYY's does have the talent to WIN tonight !! Jose Altuve and the Houston Astros are a formidable opponent but NOT invincible.

MLB is anti-Yankees. Yankees win, a small part of the tri state area watch. Astros win, all of Texas, and much of the Midwest/west watch... That's all they care about

That fool stopped sliding 😂😂😂 never seen that before🤣🤣🤣🤘🤘😂😂😂

Umps are gonna make it hard for you tonight. Don’t let’em get to you.

Im feels bad for New York Yankees 0-3 tonight

Are you f ing kidding me with that home run?!! And people think minute maid is a hitters park.

Let's get some runs off of Sabathia!

Let’s get a 3rd win tonight ‘ GO ASTROS!!!!!

Marwin!!!! Looked at three strikes. Can't believe it. Bet he won't do that again!

Figures Houston don't hit when they play the Yankees

Y’all have earned it, now take it and don’t look back at anybody ⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️⚾️

Bottom of the 4th behind 5-0. Not looking good. Already brought Harris in.

Go Astros!! Our hearts and minds are with you.❤❤❤❤❤

#EarnHistory let's go Astros!!! You got this guys!!!

Is it just me or does the strike zone seem twice as big when Houston is at the plate?!?!

Come on guys we need to start hitting

Seems like Morton always looks awesome .then he runs into a rut..

Why would you leave that worthless pitcher in there

We were never going to sweep this series. Anybody who thoughts so was delusional. There's still four games left and we only need to win two of them. That's a very achievable goal for this team so stop freaking out and acting like it's the end of the world that we lost a game in a seven game series.

This team really needs. To start hitting the ball. Got alot of people not hitting right now. Our pitching is only going to get us so far.

A positive mind is a terrible thing to waste. Feeling VERY OPTIMISTIC about the next three games as the YANKEES are back home in "Da Bronx." I TRULY BELIEVE NYY's does have the talent to WIN tonight !! Jose Altuve and the Houston Astros are a formidable opponent but NOT invincible.

No Houston was not ready to rock game 3. Just hope they come in a little more focused for game 4

Let's go boys!! This lineup is dangerous at home not to mention with Sabathia on the mound. Make him work boys!! Let's take it in the Bronx!! #GoStros #EarnHistory #AltuveMVP #HoustonStrong

Pre-game warmup: I watched the 9th inning of Saturday's game. Now I'm ready.
