    Stat Line of the Night — 6/12/2013 — Jordan Lyles

    The Houston Astros entered last night sitting in last place in the American League with an abysmal 22-44 record.  It, therefore, goes without saying that wins have been tough for the club to come by since they made their move from the NL to the AL, but they would find a way to add another […]

    Catching a foul ball with your hat is impressive. What’s even more impressive is catching a foul ball with your hat while holding a baby with your other arm. One brave father attempted to do just that during last night’s game between the Detroit Tigers and the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park, and it was a great […]

    The man in the video you are about to watch is not the first person to catch a baseball in a popcorn bucket.  But he is the latest, so that’s why we’re talking about him. It took place during Sunday’s series finale between the Indians and the Astros at Minute Maid Park in Houston.  With […]

    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. […]

    A battle of David vs. Goliath unfolded on the field at Minute Maid Park Tuesday night during a game between the New York Mets and the Houston Astros, as the tallest man in the Majors faced off against the shortest. With the Astros leading 6-3 in the bottom of the eighth inning, 5’5″ Jose Altuve […]

    Pirates Turn Triple Play, Only Need Two Outs (Video)

    I guess sometimes you can never be too sure.  Take the Pittsburgh Pirates, for example, who needed only two more outs during the bottom of the eighth inning during last night’s game against the Houston Astros, but they decided to get three, just to be safe. Although the Pirates defense may have showed a great […]

    5 MLB Teams Whose Seasons Are Already Over

    Baseball is a game that moves slowly and deliberately throughout the season. I mean, when you have 162 games to play, there really isn’t any other way to move. When you’re in the top spot, it affords you the ability to relax and tweak your style should any serious threats emerge. If you’re in the […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/13/11 — Hunter Pence

    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 […]
