The Houston Astros are selling a t-shirt that says 'Process'

Nothing like admitting your team is awful AND asking fans to wear an awfulness-related slogan.

The Houston Astros lost 106 games in 2011. They lost 107 games in 2012. They lost 111 games in 2014. They're on pace to lose *only* 95 this year, which buries them down in last place in the AL West, but it's progress!

This is called rebuilding, which is a process. A good fan of a team going through a rebuilding process accepts it -- better times are ahead, and you have to live through the suck now. But it does suck now.

And you might not want to buy shirts that say "process":

Yes, this is real:

These have apparently been around for a while, but it's the first we're seeing them. WHO WOULD WEAR THIS? It's not even, like, optimistic. It's the word "process," which is actively referring to the drudgery of crappy baseball.

We salute you, Astros fans. We hope you soon have opportunity to buy less depressing shirts. (And don't buy this one just to say you were a fan during the bad times. Please.)
