Astros’ Failure to Sign No.1 Draft Pick Shows Team Still Hasn’t Turned Corner

The most famous line in the great film, Apollo 13, can also be used to describe the Astros as of late. But Houston doesn’t just have a single problem, they have many. Nine years removed from their lone World Series appearance, this team remains entrenched in its culture of failure. They went from 106 losses in 2011, to 107 in 2012 and ultimately reaching the high (or low) water...

Is George Springer Morphing Into Beltranwell?

I admit it; I booed Carlos Beltran every time he showed up at the JuiceBox after jilting Houston for the New York Mets so many years ago.  It wasn’t just that he doody-hosed us but he doody-hosed us for the Mets.  I despise the NY Mets and desperately wanted Beltran’s five tool clinic he put on for the St. Louis Cardinals in the 2004 playoffs to continue in the 2005 regular...

Fantasy baseball: What to do with George Springer

First and foremost, I have a confession to make. Some would consider me a fantasy baseball noob. I’m only a sophomore in the sport, and while I currently lead my division, I’m the Padres or Astros in terms of titles, and certainly not the Yankees. I’m a big baseball fan, but my love for fantasy football always trumped all else, pushing fantasy baseball aside. I’m glad I was...
