Instead of employing a typical five-man, five-day rotation, the Astros have eight pitchers working in pairs […] read more...

  • The bullpen has not exactly been a strength for the Houston Astros so far in 2014. However, it does not mean that criticism is required for all parties. Some of the new faces added by Jeff Luhnow this winter have proven to be quite useful and successful in the early stages of the season. One […]... read more...

  • Three things to watch in the series: 1. The Astros played the Rangers tough when they first met this season. The same can’t be said about the way the A’s played the Astros. The Astros have yet to prove they’re anything other than a doormat to the Athletics, dropping 17 of 22 meetings since the […] read more...

  • Yes, if you are looking at the box score, Josh Fields is responsible for the loss. He blew the game. That seems simple enough as the Astros lost 5-3. Fields entered the game in the bottom of the ninth inning to face Robinson Cano and the heart of the Seattle Mariners order. Houston’s newly appointed […]... read more...

  • The Houston Astros organization has become very deep in talent. Keeping up with 25 guys on the major league roster is often a very difficult task for the casual fan. Let alone knowing the organization’s prospects versus depth. One guy who has been overlooked since being drafted is OF/DH Preston Tucker. Originally from Florida, the […]... read more...

  • Who will it be now? Who will it be now? While Houston's offense has been slumping badly, the pitching has been fairly solid. There have been plenty of implosions (see: Cosart, Jarred's last start). However, for the most part, Hou... read more...

  • Who?Gonzalo Sanudo.Sanudo came to the organization in March of last year from the Twins in what was, at the time, an exchange of low-level, non-descript minor leaguers.
