That terrible April put them behind the 8 ball.

At least they're not 10 games out of 3rd place like last year.

Again, last year's team would have lost last night's game.

As injury concerns for pitchers rampage the game, Aiken was used appropriately in the three years the Astros followed him. He averaged about 80 pitches per outing, Budzinski said.


The more I read about Aiken, the happier I am they took him. He should thank his coach for not being a dumbass and running his arm into the ground. I feel for Rodon because I think that is one of the primary reasons he fell to 3.

You feel sorry for someone because instead of getting a $6.5 million signing bonus, he's going to get a $4.5?

I think this whole season is going to be like riding the escalator up to the 2nd floor. Steady improvement

Not that I think we will make the wild card. but if we were to sneak into it, it would have to be the biggest turn around in MLB history. Over 100 losses one season, wild card the next

I almost put that in my post but you know what I mean. He was slotted to go 1.1 for 2+ years and his college coach sent him out there to throw 130+ pitches on multiple occassions. I don't feel sorry for him but I think that coach should've been told to frick off for asking that of him.

just out of curiosity here is the biggest turnaround

The biggest single-season turnaround in MLB history belongs to the Arizona Diamondbacks, who improved by 35 games from 1998 to 1999:

1998: 65-97
1999: 100-62

Ok a 35 game improvement and winning 100 games might be out of reach .

The optimistic fan in me though believes that if we can finish strong before the all star break, a run at the wild card would not be out of reach. We would have to be hot in the second half of the season though obviously.

Disclaimer before Ryno jumps on me for saying wild card isn't impossible. I do not realistically think the Stros will do that, I am a glass half full guy though so I like to tell myself it's possible.

Coming up is a very winnable stretch for the Astros.

3 @ Minnesota
4 (2 home/away) with the D Backs
3 vs the Rays at home
2 @ Nats
4 @ Tampa Bay

We might be able to make some noise if we can swing a high win % the next 16 games

Nothing beats July baseball when you're team is in the hunt for postseason.
