Good. I donít want Siri coming back either. Hopefully they can get something for him like they did Straw. Light hitting exceptional defensive CFer.

Starting pitching is about as good as it can be and we have McCullers hopefully coming back soon. They're playing some good baseball

It is really fun to watch their team when they are winning like they are. For many years they were just a average teaming the middle of the pack. But I was around when the Colt 45's was Houston's team playing in Buff Stadium on the Gulf Freeway. Go Astros!

He booted The Angels right back to LA.


But yes his defense needs to improve. Put me on the record as thinking it does.

They are looking as good or better than any other team in the bigs. I have a hard time seeing why they are not the odds on favorite to win it all right now. Pitching is off the charts and have enough depth on offense that we can win even if only half of our team is hitting.

Because the Yankees are on a 116 win pace right now, which is crazy.

Yankees, Spankees, the Astros just took 3 of 5 from them and were ďthis closeĒ to taking all 5.

And everyone in the country knows the Astros arenít afraid of the Yankees.

Liking draft picks so far. Took ďfieryĒ stud outfielder Gilbert from Tennessee. He was rated #24 overall prospect. 2nd round pick was rated #25 overall

I saw CBS rated this pick a D+ and said it was a reach. I actually liked the pic

Donít see too many players that height at all, even 2nd basemen. Yet the Astros have a 5í 6Ē 2nd baseman on the roster thatís done ok for himself, pre and post BS.

This pick, at least to me, looks like a somewhat smaller Jim Edmonds.

I donít think this was a bad pick at all. What does interest me is they drafted an almost Kyle Tucker like outfielder in the 2nd round after he allegedly turned down a contract extension a couple of months back.

It really is going to be interesting to see what happens over the next couple of years. Draft, resigns and outside free agents.

I don't think what Tucker did effects the draft.

Gilbert was a great pick. Kiley McDaniel had him as his 11th best player in the draft. Most mock drafts had him coming off the board before the Astros pick. Quite a few had them picking Melton in the first round, so that pick is excellent as well.

Hey guys, what's the story on Tucker? Is he unhappy being an Astro or what? Seems they're a team that is getting stronger, winning and playing good enuf ball to go to the big show again this year... Would seem that a guy like Tucker would want to be a part of that?? I've not watched the Stros much this year... no longer have cable and had quit watching pretty much all ball sports before that even, but have listened to them on KTRH a bit... Seems that Tucker, Altuve and the other new kid SS (Pena, I think) could be the next big sub team like Bagwell/Biggio... NO?
