    Yes, the Astros Are Bad and Not Getting Any Better

    The Astros have only played 19 games, leaving 143 more to go. It's too early to write off the season. But the team's 5-14 and has lost seven straight games, been swept in the past two series, and has just won three of its last 10 games.

    For Sanity's Sake, Just Say No to the Astros

    The 2014 Houston Astros open up the regular season next week, and I don't give a damn. Seriously, that's a hard admission to make because I love baseball.

    Astros Out to Prove Einstein Was Right About Insanity

    Albert Einstein once defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. The Houston Astros didn't yet exist when he offered up this wisdom, yet it's hard to believe that he didn't have the Astros in mind when he spoke this. The Astros are giving Erik Beda ... More >>

    The Best Managers in Astros History

    With the Washington Nationals out of the playoffs, their former third base coach Bo Porter is now in the field manager of the Houston Astros. He's busy assembling staff - retaining Doug Brocail and Dave Clark as coaches doesn't exactly fill me with confidence however. As of now, Porter's just anoth ... More >>

    20 Reasons To Buy 2013 Astros Season Tickets (No, Really)

    You've probably forgotten about baseball by now. The Astros season ended a long time ago, and unless you live in St. Louis or New York, the odds are that nobody really gives a damn about the Cardinals and Yankees.
