It’s Official Astros Fans: Never Gonna Happen 2010
Though our fair broadcasters on both radio and television might gloss over a very ugly season by not saying anything very negative or critical, I want to make an announcement. Houston is done as of today, June 19th. This is from an eternal Astros optimist.
We are a crap team this year, and for the first time since I can remember I’m questioning the effort team wide, which bothers me deeply. Oswalt wants to leave, and rightly so.
I say blow it up and start all over. Youth movement in Houston helmed by new hitting coach Bagwell is about the best we can hope for in the next two years. Buckle down, ladies and gentlemen, judging by the listless nature of this mediocre squad, your fandom will be tested Pittsburgh Pirates style until the blessed day in early October when this train wreck(Wooo!Wooo! my ass) is over.
I knew the playoffs would be a miracle, but I never imagined what I’ve been watching these last 3 months. Only up from here, I hope.
Onward and Upward,
