Much hyped Astros super-phenom George Springer made his major league debut Wednesday night. His big league promotion became known Tuesday night, and Astros fans greeted Wednesday with the same glee Buddy the Elf greeted the fake Santa at Gimbels. Sure the Astros lost Springer's debut game, but final ... More >>
You might not realize this, but the Astros are still playing baseball. So before diverting all of your attention to the Texans and whether J.J. Watt is going to get some snaps at tight end this season, here are a few reasons for you to continue watching or listening or reading about the Astros. THE ... More >>
Astros fans are getting reckless. The team's losing night after night. There's another 100-loss season staring people in the face. The team's challenging the Miami Marlins for the number draft pick, which would be the third year in a row that the Astros would have that pick. The bullpen's a disaste ... More >>
The city of San Jose, California filed an antitrust lawsuit against Major League Baseball last week. This doesn't concern Houston. It doesn't concern the Astros, or Jim Crane, or the Astros dwindling fan base. It is a lawsuit that has almost zero chance of success. Bu, hopefully it will do something ... More >>

First, it's pretty evident from the lack of attendance this season that many of you are already boycotting the ballclub, but secondly, just what it is that you want the Astros to do? Thi ... More >>
Well, we've done it again. Creed singer Scott Stapp's birthday came and went this week (he's 39), and we didn't get him a thing. Didn't even shout him out on Twitter. After the considerable musical gifts this man has given us over the years, that's completely unacceptable. There's only one way to ... More >>
