The Houston Astros Report

by Bill Chuck on August 21, 2013

If the Houston Astros win all their remaining 37 games they will finish with a record of 78-84.

Yes, for the fifth consecutive season the ‘Stros are assured of finishing under .500.

We bring notice to their plight because their ineptitude puts them in a position to play a role in determining the teams who are vying to make the postseason.
