OMW, sorry but I don't know what you mean by your reply.

Also, hard to believe there aren't any baseball fans here that are excited about spring training being just around the corner.
Oh well, I guess I will look up this thread around September or so.

There was a decent MLB thread going. Not sure where it went or why the Sports section is only listing 37 threads right now, but there are plenty of fans here. It just happens to be really fucking cold right now, so baseball isn't quite on everyone's mind.

I'd like to know what you think the Astros will do to shock everyone? You talking an unbelievable winning season or the most deplorable example of baseball yet, because having a couple guys that can go yard does not a team maketh.

Pitchers and catchers? Shouldn't this be in CS&M?

And... the Rockies are already mathematically eliminated from post season play.

So I'm not the only one that sees that title and thinks it a thread about gay men?

Very true, NICO. My team does have a lot to prove but I am certain they are up to the task.
They have the best farm system in baseball, as well they should have with the number of losing seasons they've had since 2005.
GM Jeff Luhnow has made a lot of moves in this off-season. I trust him because of the same position he had with the Cardinals a few years ago. He definitely has a good track record.
The 'stros have bolstered their bullpen, added depth at first and third, as well as the outfield. Rookies like Springer and Singleton can only get better, and trust me, George Springer will become a household name very soon. The kid has incredible talent.
In the last few weeks, we have added Colby Rasmus, Evan Gattis and Jed Lowrie. Jose Altuve won the AL batting title last year, and with some pop at DH, along with 1st and 3rd base, these guys can put up some serious numbers on the offensive side.
And further, expect to see former Stanford star pitcher Mark Appel on the big league roster by the All-Star break, as well as this 20 year-old kid named Carlos Correa. Trust me, he is as good (and potentially better) than Alex Rodriquez. What he has on A-Rod is his brain and leadership qualities. He was drafted as a short-stop, but he has quickly outgrown the position. I see him as the Astros 3rd baseman of the future.
To those that only know how the Astros as the most pathetic team in recent memory, you WILL be shocked by how good this team will be in 2015! Granted, I don't see them playing in October this year, but trust me......
2016 will be the year for these guys.
Having been a Houston-born, life-long fan of the Astros, I'm so fucking excited about the near future. They are, and will continue to be an extremely exciting team to watch.
What pisses me off to no end though, is that Selig "demoted" them to the AL. Of course he wasn't going to put his beloved Brewers back in the AL!!!!
For Gods sakes, Bud.................TWO teams in the American League West from Texas, only 240 miles apart? UP YOURS!

Hope springs eternal. Never more true than during baseball's spring training.

Bullpen help is what almost every team needs. Having a strong farm system can be huge, but it's still a big leap going from AAA to the big show. They're called prospects for a reason. That noted, I truly wish my Tigers had some semblance of a farm system they could draw upon. Then maybe we'd have a pen that didn't give fans nightmares.

I think you're right. Those guys will still be pitching well into October.
