A couple of good trivia questions - try to get them without looking it up:

What was the last season before 2015 that the Astros had a winning record?

Who is the only player on that team still on a MLB roster?





Not sure on the year. But I'd guess Hunter Pence is the player.
Winner, along with those that said 2008.

  • Bud Norris is a free agent (almost had a deal with the Nats in April but it fell through)
  • Matt Albers was on the team in '07 but was part of the Tejada trade
  • Jason Castro didn't get called up until 2010

Too bad they haven't taken advantage of Seattle's 2-8 record over the last 10 games.

Quote:

"It's pretty clear he can hit right now in the big leagues," general manager Jeff Luhnow said Saturday. "I think for him to have the maximum impact on this team, we need him to be able to play a position and I do think left field is where he has the best chance to play for us, especially in our ballpark, and he is making strides."

Before the Astros opened their two-game series in Monterrey against the Angels on Saturday, Luhnow offered a "word of caution," invoking Kyle Tucker's terrible introduction into the major leagues last season.

After calling up Tucker who tore through Class AAA pitching at an almost identical pace to Alvarez he mustered a .439 OPS in his 72 major league plate appearances. Now, Alvarez appears to have passed him on the organization's outfield pecking order.

"The same people who were clamoring for Kyle Tucker to come up because he was destroying AAA pitching are the same people now clamoring for Yordan Alvarez to come up," Luhnow said. "I understand that, trust me, I love having prospects that fans ask when they're coming up. But there's no exact science about how many at-bats a player needs at various levels."

"If (Alvarez) is coming up, he's coming up to play, and if he comes up and hits .210, that's not going to help our team. I need to make sure he's going to help our team, but he certainly is making it a conversation, not just with our fans, but internally."

Someone should tell Jeff that an OF platoon player hitting .210 is helping this team since the OF platoon player we have is batting .110.

It should be an error. He had time to plant his feet and make a good throw.

One important thing about Yordan's numbers to keep in mind is that Triple A is using the MLB this year and home run rate in Triple A has increased significantly as compared to last year and as compared to Double A, which uses the regular minor league ball. This is proving that the MLB ball is juiced. I say this because this then suggests Yordan's numbers are likely not as good as Tucker's last season.

Stassi will find a way to eff up this wet dream. Maybe we can get him drunk and leave him in a cartel affiliated strip club

Would imagine for this series only. But I could see that in the near future being an every, day thing given what the NBA has done with jerseys and NFL with practice jerseys
I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.
