Go Astros

The Astros bandwagon has begun taking applicants.

If the Astros actually win the world series this year I am buying that magazine and framing it

Kirios

So, Derek Fisher was very impressive at the Future's Game.

...why isn't he on the roster? What benefit is there to keep Aoki for him? Asking for a friend.

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



Tucker is the one player, above all others, I don't want the Astros to trade.

Fisher is...replaceable, but man, he could easily be the starting LF this year. If the Cubs keep starting Schwarber, why can't the Astros deploy Fisher?

Tucker is 20 and slashing .288/.349/.553 in AA, I have high hopes for him

Sonny Gray for Tucker + Perez

What say you?

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



Problem is...that's at least what it will take to get a #3 pitcher. Someone like Cole, Quintana, etc. will cost more than that.

And I'm not sure it's worth it.

Edit: Nah, we aren't getting a good starter without parting with at least Tucker or Fisher.

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



Yeah, but he's quite far away. That devalues him a little bit compared to Tucker and especially Fisher. Fisher can be sold as ready to be plugged into RF tomorrow.

Intruder posted:

Sadly he was right about Singleton

You think Daz is a bust? At least he has time to turn it around. He's 20 and OPSing .728 in A ball. He's far from a lost cause.

Now, Singleton?! That is a massive, massive bust.

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



Oh, certainly, he hasn't impressed anyone yet. But he's got time to turn it around, and to be fair to him, has been improving lately.

I'm just extremely salty about Jon Singleton and AJ Reed. We aren't allowed to have a nice 1B.

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



Martes, yes.

Fisher....maybe, but possibly yes.

Go for the greatest offense of all time, gently caress it.

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



It warms my heart that Astros fans are starting to use this thread finally. We should continue to do this!

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



I am thrilled we are playing the Yankees instead of the Indians.

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



Yeah...that's the team's critical problem. We have a fantastic 1-2, but...what the gently caress do you do for the other three games?

I'd say have a Peacock/Morton combo for our #3 and McHugh for one game...but it's not an easy decision to make.

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



Holy gently caress man...

Intruder you have never been more wrong than that Verlander trade.

That was so loving worth it. I am on cloud nine.

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



I honestly think we have a team that can win it all.

It's been a hell if a ride - appreciate it. Houston sports fans don't get this often

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



I have never been happier (or more drunk) to be an Astros fan.

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



Isn't Keuchel on short rest for game 1?

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



Yeah they could not have been more wrong on that trade

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



The Astros have a better lineup than the Dodgers.

I still have low faith in this series, but hey, stranger things have happened.

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



Being a fan of Houston sports has definitely taken years off my life

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



It's still surreal to me.

We... aren't getting swept?

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



Time to bump the Astro Lounge thread up, choo choo!

Up 2-1 gents!

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



Not at all down. Still feeling great about it.

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



Yeah I'm not going to call him an idiot at all. At least try to understand where he's from and his perspective.

I don't think he meant any malice at all. Like I said yesterday, I'm not going to hate a man or call him racist for one moment of ignorance.

To do so is asinine and proves we have learned nothing except how to be offended and be outraged.

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



Yeah that's totally not an overreaction or anything.

Calm the gently caress down people.

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



I have zero faith in the Astros. Dodgers have this series in the bag.

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



Astros fans I am torn..

Do I...

1. Drive to Seattle, watch Texans vs Seahawks, get back home around 730 PST and miss most of game 5

Or

2. Stay at home and watch both games on TV

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



What would you do intruder?

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



Can we just talk about Deshaun Watson in this thread?

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



BUMPING THIS THREAD AGAIN TOOT TOOT gently caress YEAH

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



OH ME OF LITTLE FAITH

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



I think for the Astros to really pull this off we need you to dig deep Intruder.

We need another 70s food nightmare toxx.

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



I think I may like baseball more than football.

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



I...

I didn't think this would happen.

I didn't think this would ever happen to me. I'd never be able to see a championship.

THIS IS THE GREATEST SPORTING MOMENT IN MY LIFE

It's still surreal. It may always be surreal. But...oh man, I think our pessimism may finally go away. This is so loving incredible.

Kirios
Jan 25, 2010



LET THE GOOD VIBES COMING BECAUSE OH MY loving GOD WE JUST WON THE WORLD SERIES!

gently caress YEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAH

This means so much more to me than the Rockets titles

The Astros are the first team I ever loved

Exact same here. This means way more than the Rockets.

I think this means even more than the Texans winning the Super Bowl.

I'll never forget this moment for the rest of my life.

I love you all. I'm sorry we went to blows TheChirurgeon - we're just two passionate fans wanting this moment to finally happen

AND IT DID
