Jeff Luhnow has a personalized license plate with a reminder of last year's disaster of a season. The Astros are going in the right direction, but how long it takes to get to the ultimate destination remains unknown.

The Biggest Surprise of Spring 2014

The Astros had plenty of people fighting for Major League jobs, and there were a few standout performances that should encourage Houston fans heading into the 2014 season.

Should relievers have defined roles?

The Astros have not named a closer and do not plan to begin the season. Good idea or bad?

Tuesday Daily Boil: More reasons to love Correa

Carlos Correa made an impromptu speech during the Quad Cities championship ring ceremony and, of course, it will make you even more impressed with the young prospect.

Astros add Williams to rotation mix

The Astros surprisingly sign Jerome Williams, and then even more surprisingly give him a MLB-guaranteed deal. Is he worth it?

12 candidates, but only five get slots. Who has the leg up on the competition?

2013 Winter Meetings Opening Day

Jeff Luhnow makes the excursion from Mexico City to Orlando where he discusses the Astros plan of attack for the rest of the offseason. Meanwhile, Lucas Harrell draws interest.

Fowler could make Luhnow look very smart

When healthy, Dexter Fowler has continued to develop into a very good every day player. Jeff Luhnow could look like quite the genius once again if Fowler plays in a lot of games.

Why the Astros need Trembley

Dave Trembley was brought back this week to be a part of the Astros coaching staff. He won't be coaching third base anymore, but his new position of bench coach could help the Astros even more.

The tenth loss in a row comes by 12 runs to the rivals from Texas as Houston now officially will have the No. 1 in 2014.

Erik Bedard was not able to stop the bleeding that has been September for the Astros. Chris Carter homers for the second day in a row for the Astros.

Trogdor Hits 28th Homer in Astros Loss

Chris Carter goes yard in the ninth, but it's too little too late. Lucas Harrell also shines in relief, but Houston loses it's eighth in a row.

Astros Fall in Extras on Walk-Off Single

The Astros had their chances in this one, but they don't take advantage and go down in extra innings. Dallas Keuchel impress again with seven strong innings.

Cueto and Reds Shut Down Astros

The Astros scatter their seven hits across a pretty unexciting performance to stay four games ahead (or behind?) the Marlins for the worst record in 2013.

Clemens Deals, but Astros Fall in Series Finale

Paul Clemens goes seven innings for the first time in his career, but only gets a Marc Krauss home run as support.

Astros Win Streak Comes to an End

Jarred Cosart keeps the Astros in it by allowing only one unearned run and Houston scores four in the ninth to get the victory.

It started well for Lucas Harrell, but with two outs in the third inning the wheels fell off. L.J. Hoes reaches base four times, but the Astros offense doesn't do much else.

Brett Oberholtzer followed up his shutout with another very good outing, but he is out-dueled by the A's Dan Straily in the loss.

MLB Scores: Athletics 7, Astros 5

Dallas Keuchel continues to confuse Astros fans by following a great outing with a pretty rough one. The Astros battle in this one with the bats, but can't get the big hit in the ninth. In...

Keuchel Deals, But Astros Lose Fifth in a Row

Dallas Keuchel worked past a rough first inning, and turned in a wonderful start, but the Astros cold offense continues as the team loses it's fifth in a row

Lyles solid, Astros Can't Produce Rally

Jordan Lyles met the qualifications of a quality start on Thursday night, but the Astros couldn't support him in the opener of a four-game set.

Bullpen Blows Yet Another Astros Win

This time it was a new face to the club, as Erik Bedard is not able to keep down the White Sox in the eighth to preserve a lead built by Matt Dominguez' bat and Paul Clemens arm.
