2012 Rotations

MLB - Age - Profile (Assuming no injuries) Brett Myers - 31 - Wandy more likely to be moved, and I doubt they move both. He's an innings eater who can be a good #4 on a playoff team and will make...

Make or Break Year for 2008 Draftees

2012 will mark the 4th full year for the 2008 draft class, which is the current front office's first and for many fans marked the point at which the farm system began to improve. Of the 52 players...

The Difference between Worst Team Ever and .500 Baseball

I did a quick look at the rosters for the playoff bound teams (focusing on OPS and ERA...I know, I know) trying to narrow down exactly why Houston was so terrible. Really, what's the difference...

MLBTR posted this article about what to expect if Houston becomes sellers (i.e. continues to lose and be out of conention at the deadline); I thought it was worth reposting and discussing here.
