That redlit headline could have been a lot shorter.

I'm so glad real baseball is back.

Meh, you always win a third and lose a third. It's the other third that counts.

Frederick: Rick Ankiel leads the league in HR's.


Even more unlikely, Erik Bedard leads the league in saves.

I was expecting some sort of "Astros lead the AL West APRIL FOOLS" headline

I saw HOU vs TEX and assumed it was spring training.
 
Not sure why they had to realign again.

Mostly to piss Costas off, which is a hell of a good reason.
 
I would like to welcome Houston to the AL West. I'll see ya next week!

As someone who grew up in Houston and fully expected the Astros to go 0-162, this really makes me happy.  
 
/They'll still lose 115 games this year.

I thought it was funny that the Houston Chron, making predictions in their Astros season preview, actually asked "Will the Astros finish with the worst record in baseball in 2013?"

Though for what it's worth, they said "no" and I'm actually inclined to agree. Despite a much tougher division, I don't think they hit 100 loses again this year. Probably closer to 95.

I laughed, even if subby is a total jerk.

Supes: "Will the Astros finish with the worst record in baseball in 2013?"


I dunno, Cleveland? Seattle? The Cubbies are always a perennial favorite. It really depends on how long it takes some of the Houston AAA guys to sink or swim in the bigs - if they have even a few marginal players somewhere in the pipeline, and they're not afraid to turn over the roster fairly often, they could manage a decent team at some point in the season.

But it's kind of shocking when you see just how few guys there are on that team that you've ever heard of. I mean, I follow an NL Central team pretty closely, and there's still only three, maybe four guys on that roster who've ever made it onto my radar.
