Ryan Freel

I guess it's pretty obvious why I am posting something about Ryan Freel today. I haven't bothered to post anything for sometime...well ever since getting back to America. Ryan Freel committed...

The Astros Are Right Where They Should Be

I feel as if I've had manure forced into my facial offaces after being an Astros fan these past two (six?) seasons. I used to enjoy writing fan posts about my favorite team, but now it's about on...

Accepting "Toolsy" and Embracing Jonathan Villar...or Trading Him

I was going to write this before the season started, but I was too lazy. Then Villar got off to a slow start, and I lost faith in him. Hope is back! His recent offensive surge as reawakened the...

The Importance of George Springer

In my mind George Springer is the most important part of the Astros's return to the playoffs. It will be huge if he can live up to his potential and turn into a middle of the order bat that can...

The Astros Up The Middle

As of today, going by fangraphs WAR, the Astros have the top second baseman and the third best shortstop in all of baseball. It is still early and both Altuve and Lowrie will have some regression...

What if We're in the Hunt at the Deadline?

The Astros may have a losing record, but they have been outscoring their opponents. I feel confident that if they continue to do so they will see their win loss record improve. They may even have...

Five "Prospects" I'll Follow for 2012

I was bored after last night's game with the Rockies, so I went sorting through minor league stats and box scores...I would have watched the Lancaster game but MiLB.tv messed up my subscription,...

Which AAAA Players Would You Like To Have?

I have started to wonder which older or non prospect minor league players could provide something that our Astros need. I'm thinking about guys who are too old to be real prospects but maybe have...

The Year of the First Rounders

The ducks and geese never left the Fens this year. They decided to stay the whole winter and just ignore the handful of days the water froze over. I, however, unable to fly south, have been...

This Is It

As we all know, and have all complained about, 2012 is the Astros final year in the National League Central. The players union wanted every team to have the same number of teams to beat out for a...

The Astros Should Pursue Defense

  I've been thinking about this for a little while now, and CRPerry13's article proved to be the laxative that got me writing on the subject. I am assuming that if you are reading this then you...

The Marlins' High-Rolling Could Be Good For Us

The Florida Marlins have changed their name to the Miami Marlins and altered their logo in order to win the Ugliest Logo in the Majors Award. They make these changes because they are on their way...

Glimmer of Hope: Daydreams, Come True!

I would like to start this with the disclaimer that I don't think that this is how the 2012 season will shake out for our Astros.  This is what I tell myself, after shooting some antidepressants,...

Glimmer of Hope: The 50 Million

The $50 million dollar compensation for moving the Astros into the American League West is still just rumor, but let's talk about spending it.  I don't know about you, but I know what I would do if...

Glimmers of Hope: The Pitchers

The starting rotation was suppose to be the strength of the 2011 Astros.  Sadly the rest of the team didn't set the bar very high, and the rotation still wasn't a strength.  The 2010 rotation, led...

Glimmer of Hope: Lee

  No!  There's not a glimmer of hope that we will trade for Cliff Lee.  It's Carlos Lee!  I've been writing about the young guys so far, the ones with hazier futures, the ones that make us squint...

Glimmers of Hope: Altuve and Paredes

I was going to have two separate entries for these guys, but I'd rather knock them out at the same time since my feelings about them are similar.  I think that both of them will spend quite a bit...

Glimmer of Hope: Martinez

Despite my optimism about Bogusevic and...sigh...Schafer, there is a slight chance that the Astros outfield may not produce too many runs with their bats.  Next season we will still be missing H...

Glimmer of Hope: Downs

Glimmer of Hope: Schafer

Ok, this one is harder.  I really have to squeeze my optimism glands as I drink my corn whiskey because I'm not a big Jordan Schafer fan.  But I realize that this off season I have to work extra...

Glimmer of Hope: Castro

For as long as I can remember the Astros have been known for their heavy hitting catchers.  If we run down the list of Astro catchers, it's practically a home run derby.  Quintero, Corporan,...

Glimmer of Hope: Bogusevic

I like Brian Bogusevic.  I want him playing right field for the Astros pretty much full time for all of 2012.  I want him to get at bats against left handed pitchers.  There I said it.  I think the...

Dear Mr Selig,

The American League West...It's not so bad right?

Sure the AL doesn't play real baseball.  They play DH-Ball, but that's a good thing for us.  At least for next year since we already have one of the most expensive DHs playing left field.  I know;...
