    Even the worst team in Major League Baseball has to win sometimes.  That was exactly what happened last night at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago, as the Houston Astros were victorious over the White Sox thanks to the bat of designated hitter Chris Carter.

    Nobody has fewer wins over the last two Major League Baseball seasons than the Houston Astros. Last year they finished 56-106 (worst in baseball), and so far this year they are 36-75 (worst in baseball). As a consequence, the team has gone into hardcore rebuilding mode and sold off every single player with any value. […]
