  • Many Houston Astros fans may hear the name Justin Ferrell, and think about Riley Ferrell, who the Astros drafted in the second round of the 2015 MLB draft.

  • Twenty one games into the 2015 season, the Houston Astros were 14-7. It was a delightful story because at the time even the Astros seemed to think they were a year or two away from real contention, and there they were seven games above .500 before the end of the first month of the season. At the time, I noted that their early season success put them in a situation where th... read more...

  • Hump Day was a good day for Evan Gattis and the Houston Astros. Led by a pair of home runs hit by Gattis the Astros beat the Yankees 6-2. It gave the team it's 71st win of the season, and gave them more wins than they had last season and the most since 2010 when they won 76 (a total they can surpass easily before the season is over).With two home runs Gattis is now tied fo... read more...

  •     Mike Fiers pitched a no-hitter in a 3-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night, and questions have arisen about whether or not he had some illegal assistance. MLB Network picked up the feed of the game as Fiers was going for the no-hitter in the ninth inning, leading to a much larger TV audience. Many fans noticed during a zoomed-in shot that Fiers appeared ... read more...

  • Carlos Gomez rubs a lot of people the wrong way. On Tuesday, he rubbed some members of the Yankees wrong when he popped up in the sixth inning of a 9-0 game and angrily flipped his bat. Gomez came up an inning later with the Astros’ lead extended to 12-0, and he launched a three-run homer off of Chris Capuano. And just to top things off, in the bottom half of the sevent... read more...
