need to play .480 ball in order to win their 54. 12-13! I don't think they can do it!

Forget 54, it will be incredibly tough for them to go 8-17 to win 50. They will out perform the 2003 Tigers who went 43-119, probably the worst modern team in history.

They play six more games against the Cardinals. I'd be happy if the Astros could somehow play .333 ball against them. I'm not seeing it.

Still underconstruction. More than likely will be under construction for another 3 or 4 years. Just a guess. 10 year plan dude!!!

Here's an insane statistic: Yesterday's Astros-Reds game got a 0.05 TV rating in Houston, meaning that about 1,100 households were tuned in. The Houston metro area has a population of about 6 million, so, being generous, that means about 1 out of every 2,000 Houstonians watched the Astros game yesterday.

I know it was the first day of football season and everything, but Jeez.
