    This Enthusiastic Fan Doesn’t Care How Bad The Astros Are (Video)

    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).

    Having lost eight of their last nine games heading into yesterday’s finale of their four-game series with the Atlanta Braves, the Houston Astros have been one of the coldest teams in baseball.  Oddly enough, they also currently have one of the hottest hitters in baseball in their line-up.  That would be right fielder Hunter Pence, […]

    Is it really worth diving across a few seats, crushing your son and making him cry, just to catch a foul ball?  To this father it was, but at least he came away with a souvenir via the great grab, unlike the dad at the Dodgers game, who dropped both his daughter and the ball […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/18/10 – Paul Maholm

    The Pittsburgh Pirates have not had much to be happy about this year, or even the last 15 years for the matter.  They are one of the perennial losers in baseball as each season they sell off the few good young stars they have and seem to be in a perpetual rebuilding mode.  Yesterday, however, […]
