With about 30% of the payroll of the other guys in their division, are leading the pack at this point.  Jumping on Oakland today.

 

Very young team, hope they continue to get better as a small market team.

Thanks for giving us Ruiz and Folty for Evan fuging Gattis :)

 

The Astros have done some of this winning without their big bats at all until yesterday with the Caveman had 4 RBIs

 

Gattis, Springer and Carter have not existed thus far this year.  Get them all going and......

Ending April winning twice as many games as they lost and having the 4th best record in baseball.

 

Hope they can keep it up.

Astros have a bright future though. Correa is gonna be a special player

 

Correa batting close to 400 in the minors, hope they can bring him up soon

Of course the Astros have a good, young team with a small. payroll.

They've been the doormat of the MLB for a decade. They've collected prized high pick prospects for years and now they're all at the major league level on their rookie contracts. They're young and exciting and will win some games and show tons of potential.

Then in 2-4 more years they'll reject small arbitration deals from Houston and cash in as members of the Yankees, Dodgers, Red Sox, etc.

 

Oh I know.  Small window for Houston until the vultures come in and pick em clean again.

 

They seem like a farm team for the rest of the league

The AL West = The NFC South

The AAAstros have been playing some good ball though.

Looks like the Angels won the Conger for Tropeano and Perez swap though... Bout the only thing we've won this year

Lance McCullers made his first start this week, Correa coming soon.

 

Even though they have the best record in the AL and only a half game behind the Cards for best record overall, I am not trusting of their closer.

 

Oh well, afternoon televised game today, so will tape it.

I am really rooting for them.  I played 2B growing up and Biggio was my favorite player.  Always use to pull for them to come out of the NL.
