    The only thing I'm hearing from all the pundits is "maybe they won't lose 100 games this year"

    WOW. I'm fired up for the season now!

    As long as game 1 (and preferably the entire season opening series) goes in the L column, I hope the rest of your season isn't as bad as expected.

    As usual Canseco speaks the inconvenient truth.

    Jim Crane is not a popular man in Houston right now.

    I'm not piling on. NO, really. I'm not.


    The wives of Houston Astros players have, for several years, put on a charity gala to benefit the Houston Area Women’s Center. A minor brouhaha has erupted over the past few days when it was learned that the Wives Gala would not be held this year, which will have a negative impact on the Women’s Center. Two Astros blogs are even protesting it by going dark for a day.
    There have been a few competing explanations for this. One was a change in focus of Astros charities under the new ownership group, but today there came a statement from the Astros Vice President of Community Relations on that which gets to the point a bit more directly:
    There was no event canceled because there was no event planned because the wives group no longer had any wives in it,” Vaillancourt said. “This change is not at all a reflection on the value of the Women’s Center. We really respect and appreciate everything that the Women’s Center does.”
    In other news, the Astros will not be growing playoff beards due to their lack of ability to grow facial hair and will have no champagne showers because the only guy of age on that team when they broke camp just got signed by the Mets.
