Default 2018 Houston Astros season thread, Repeat!

Well, here we go again! Had to start new thread on same day as last year because we don't want to jinx em, right Smart?. On paper, we should be even better than last year with the addition of Cole and the two bullpen guys, but you never know. "LEADERSHIP"!

Go 'Stros! If they maintain their humility and focus, there no reason they should not repeat... They have what appears to be good leadership and coaching/management staff... I just have a hard time with the ownership... Not a Crain fan... but won't hold that against the boys who play the game.

Springer Dinger is on board. Things are shaping up nicely. USA TODAY (not exactly a sports powerhouse) predicts 100 wins with a 16 (I think) game lead over the Angels.

Rangers predicted to be under .500.

But like my great great Grandfather Minchew said when he landed in New York...."People, don't believe everything you read on the internet".

I agree but it sure is hard to see them not winning 100 games IF most of the key players stay healthy.

Can't wait! They should be even better this year if we stay healthy

Fisher will get more OF reps...Hopefully McCullers has a full season(which I doubt), and we figure out a good DH. Maybe Reed will finally step up

Glad we got Cole for peanuts, just wish they would pick up a lefty for the pen. Can't wait to get it going again.

Hopefully the Anthony Gose experiment is a success. If not, there's always Sipp.

That's right, how did I forget about that guy? I think we picked up another Lefty on waivers as well.

Wonder if they will try to extend Altuve?

Should be a 100 win team, hard to find any regression in that lineup or in rotation. Tucker and Whitley could be called up to help out after all star break.

Not to point fingers at anyone, lol, but the thread is slow loading because some folks keep posting pics and gifs other than Kate. It worked last year so Im all for it to continue but it does slow the thread waaaay down. Carry on and GO ASTROS!
