  • Over the past couple of weeks, I have put together a couple of potential scenarios regarding the Houston Astros. One of them have involved Matt Dominguez on the trading block, while the other elaborated on Evan Drellich’s report that Marwin Gonzalez could take over third base if Dominguez doesn’t grab the position in 2015. It’s […] ... read more...

  • Certain statistical accomplishments are considered to be virtual guarantees of being enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Once a player has managed 3000 hits, 500 home runs or 300 wins, enshrinement was merely a formality. Of course, with the Steroid Era, and players such as Rafael Palmeiro, Sammy Sosa and Roger Clemens on the […] ... read more...

  •   Since Jeff Luhnow took over general manager duties for the Houston Astros in December 2011, he has had the toughest job in baseball: take a mediocre organization that is thin on talent and rebuild it into a winning franchise. To achieve this monumental task, Luhnow began dismantling the team by trading away vets and […] ... read more...

  • When one looks at Jeff Bagwell‘s career, his resume is truly impressive.

  • Most fans of the Houston Astros have not seen their team on television in two years. The Comcast SportsNet Houston fiasco blocked the Astros from TV for everyone except about 40% of the local Houston market after the 2012 season, leaving a huge part of the fan base in the dark. Astros fans in Texas, […] ... read more...

  • If you asked Jeff Luhnow, he’d probably like a do-over on the 2014 MLB Draft. If he had a DeLorean, a broken hot tub, or a tesseract, he could make a quick trip back to June in order to right the mistakes of that ill-fated first round. In case you don’t remember (ha-ha, who doesn’t?), […] ... read more...

  • The Houston Astros have agreed to a three year deal with shortstop Jed Lowrie which will guarantee him $23 million.

  • No one is thinking about the Astros. They had their jaunt in the headlines this month, throwing a combined $54 million to free agents Jed Lowrie, Luke Gregerson and Pat Neshek. Spending like that hasn’t been seen around here since Drayton McLane rode off, and for Astros fans, it was celebrated. But the industry-wide glow didn’t […] read more...

  • The Astros made a leap forward in 2014.  Jose Altuve stepped up as an offensive leader and George Springer showed he has potential.  The Astros still aren’t a winning team, but they’re certainly making steps towards it, with plenty of promising prospects closer to helping. Houston has addressed their bullpen this offseason, and despite Singleton and Springer graduating off... read more...

  • The Astros have made it clear that they intend to upgrade their bullpen this winter, chasing Andrew Miller and David Robertson with significant four year offers before watching both sign with other teams.

The latest addition by the Astros is infielder Jed Lowie who signed a three-year deal worth $23 million guaranteed. The deal includes a fourth year option.

  • After missing out of southpaw Andrew Miller, the Houston Astros will be looking elsewhere to bolster their bullpen for the 2015 season. The Astros have been targeting bullpen help all off-season, and may now turn their efforts to land David Robertson, as the free agent closer’s chances of returning to the New York Yankees appear to have significantly dwindled by Miller’s s... read more...
