  • The Astros Almost Took Futility to the Next Level

    From the NY Times...

    After a franchise-record 106 losses last season, the Astros have endured a sobering summer, including a 4-34 spiral from June 28 through last Thursday. It was the worst 38-game stretch in the National League since the Cleveland Spiders finished the 1899 season by going 1-40.

    On pace for 107 losses this year - that is if they don't have another month like July (3-24).

    1. The more I learn, the more convinced I am that many players are over-rated due to inflated stats from offensive home parks (and eras)

      I said it a few weeks ago but I think it's still funny...

      The Astros decided they had no interest in going to the American League.. instead they would prefer going down to Single A!

        How does a team like the astros not compete? They live in the 4th largest city in the country...if they have no money then thats because past ownership was horrible
