Cy Young winner vs Cy Young runner up. It doesn't get much better than that on opening day.

Haha, I thought about putting it at 1, just to see if you would buy.

Late to the party but here's the dope smoking outlook (positivity everywhere). Sorry mazag08, coaching life keeps me busy.


The pitching talent depth that the Astros have built is going to continue to show this year. The list of arms that we really didn't have on the radar at this time last year is just staggering.
  • Whitley (ok, he was on our radar)
  • James (seriously, who even knew him 1 year ago)
  • Martin (we know him because he's an Aggie, but who had him nearly winning the #5 spot 1 year later)
  • Brandon Bialek (I honestly didn't know much about him until AJ Hinch raved about him all spring)
  • Rogelio Armenteros (not as heralded as most but has been a producer at all levels)

I'm stopping there, but that's just insane depth. Everyone of those guys are not lower level prospects, they are all knocking on the door.

Genius offseason moves that always kind of make you nod your head.
  • Acquiring the Marwin replacement, Diaz (former freakin All-Star)
  • Signing Brantley (a real good lefty bat that was needed badly to break up the righty brigade we have)
  • Extending Bregman and Verlander.

All of these moves are the type that make smart fans of other teams a little mad.


I expect nothing less than another 100 win season, and with the Rangers and Seattle tanking we could push it into 105+ territory in my opinion.

Here's my unsane Astros predictions:
  • Bregman hits 40 homers and finishes 2nd in the MVP voting behind Trout.
  • Brantley has a turn back the clock career year.
  • Chirinos hits 20 homers (maybe not 20, but close)
  • McHugh wins 15+ games and is much more like the 2016 version of himself.
  • Reddick struggles.
  • Yuli struggles.
  • Peacock loses his 5th starter spot to one of the youngsters.
  • Tyler White is the 6th most productive hitter on the team according to wRC+ #sorrynotsorryBearkat
  • Forrest Whitley is a Charlie Morton type playoff hero.
  • Astros win World Series.

I've said it many times and I'll say it again. Luhnow is turning us into the Cardinals. There's an old saying amongst the scouting circles about "Cardinal magic." They always seem to acquire guys that other teams couldn't figure out, make shrew move after shrewd move, and keep a line of pitching arms knocking on MLB's door.

This is how you make a window last for decades. Not years.

Screw Mike Stanton by the way for picking the Yankees to win the AL Pennant and World Series
I find it very surprising that the team who pretty easily won the WS last year, isn't picked to win the pennant by anyone

Finally here! Sick of these long off-seasons. Much easier when the offseason starts in Novembe

Bregman's position in AL MVP voting
5th - too may Astros split the vote

Correa plate appearances
479

Tyler White HR's
9 - he gets replaced early by committee

Reddick batting average
.255 - I think he continues to decline.

Most wins by a pitcher
19 - Cole, but who really cares. Terrible stat.

Whitley's first start
Whatever the date is that prevents the Astros from wasting some time.

Hits by a pitcher
All year long? We're going to miss WS RBI Lance, but Cole can stroke it too, right? We only has 28 PA last year. 3 sounds fine.

When will the Astros have a better TV deal? How long will they be stuck on AT&T Sports Southwest? At some point I am hoping that the distribution gets better or they can get out of the deal.

If I remember correctly
1) Download the MLB At Bat App
2) Select favorite team as the Astros
3) When it gets close to game time it will give an option to "Watch Live"
4) It will ask for TV provider login credentials (still doesn't support XFinity, must have ATT/DIRECTV)

If those bets were all actual bets you could place in Vegas, I'd have the most trouble betting on Bregman. Too many outside factors at play in the MVP race.

He's got a stiff neck. He's probably not going to play.

They are on every major cable provider in the Houston area and have now been added to at least one streaming platform.

Apparently we have a very lucrative TV deal so I wouldn't expect it to change anytime soon.

This is how I remember it as well.

The "watch live" option won't be there until close to game time

The biggest annoyance in my life living in DFW is finding the games on tv are impossible. Myself and the MLB streams on reddit are best friends

Altuve's size still makes him an historical outlier so only natural that the odds would still discount him.
