Wow, spring training is just around the corner! Just a few months away, I am very excited about our Astros 2008 season. Baseball is amazing. There is no better feeling in the world then stepping inside of the ball park, all the noise, the sound of bats popping, kids yelling for autographs and of course the beautiful field. :D With Wade making all of these changes you can't help but be excited to see all of the new faces. Even our new steroid pumping friend *Miguel Tejada*. This is gonna be a fun season, win or lose. Hopfully we can get a little more pitching before the season, but i realy dont think that -->

1 Roy Oswalt
2 Brandon Backe
3 Wandy Rodriguez
4 Chris Sampson
5 Woody Williams

--> Is as bad as a rotation as some people think. As long as our pitching staff stays healthy we will be in the fight for first place in the divison.

Well any ways, about the fan check in. I added in some stuff to mix things up a little and so we can get to know eachother alot better.

Well first of all the tixs were free... and Spring Woods is not Spring.. Beckett and I had many battles.. I played ball at Galveston JUCO before moving to San Diego, Ca. The JUCO schools in Cali need and love Texas Pitchers.. (remember that)... and i was with Tampa Bay for a year, thats how i know backe, i was a 3rd baseman, and he was an outfielder.. I played in st. louis in 2003, and in Corpus in 2005 before going to Arizona in 2006. I have since retired, due to (2) hernias, and knee,ankle,elbow, and shoulder operations.. I still play, but playing here in town is easier on the body then all of the traveling..lol...

-Location: Portland, Maine
-Favorite current Astro: TIE Berkman/Pence
-Favorite former Astro: Mike Scott
-Baseball experience[Little League][Highschool][College][Minors][MLB]: NONE, i'm just a fan of the game
-Favorite teams besides the Astros: Athletics, Red Sox...i've gotten the weekend off where the Sox are in Houston, but not the tickets yet...Sportznut how did you get yours? they're not on sale yet
-What moves would you make if you were Ed Wade: Sign Matt Clement, Jeremy Affeldt. Livan would be nice but a last resort b/c he is a Type A free agent
-Best moment at a MLB game: well the scariest is that i was at the game where Larry Dierker had his stroke in the dugout...the best was watching Andy Pettitte & Lance Berkman & Brad Lidge hold off the Phillies on Labor Day 2005 w/ a bunch of friends who are Phillie fans at Citizens Bank Park

Location: Pharr, Tx
-Favorite current Astro: Brandon Backe
-Favorite former Astro: Craig Biggio
-Baseball experience: Played for Rio Grande Valley Independent League.
-Favorite teams besides the Astros: Only astros ..but I will follow the teams that picked up astros in the offseason (Twins, Baltimore, Arizona, Philli)

-What moves would you make if you were Ed Wade:- I think our offseason trading was very disorganized. We traded soo much and should have made more accomidating packages ..Here is what we could have done.........Traded for Dan Haren and Carlos Gomez signed Alexei Ramirez(ss), and kept Everette, Lamb, and Sarfate ..........that is a young fast team that does not need a healthy farm and very low salary ...we would be able to compete this year and sign someone like Sheets, Garland or Penny and a bat next year...Everrete and Ausmus would serve as mentors for Towels and Ramirez and Sarfate would be an established Closer for 09...

-Most historic MLB record: Craig 3000
-Favorite movie: Back to the Future 2
-Anything else you would care to share: I think we will be good, but pitching wins playoffs...I see a fire sale in the near future....

-Favorite teams besides the Astros- Boston Red Sox
-What moves would you make if you were Ed Wade- I would resign as GM lol, I might consider signing Barry Bonds as a bench player. I mean why not he always gets on base.

Ya know, I guess theres no pitching help left at all for the Astros. Thats too bad I'd like them to try and snag one quality pitcher just to see what it would do for the team. I dont know bout Oswalt. I have faith in Wandy. Backe.... ehhhhh, Moehler, not too shabby, and whomever will take Chacon's place... good luck. Id like to see Sampson as a starter again. Or at least bring up a couple of minor league kids who knows what you may get.

We really only have on glue guy on this team and he is really young to be our only real glue and face of the club in Pence

hello all! I know the Astros aren't doing well this year but I have a business trip coming up to Houston and I'm planning to get in a Astros Phillies game on the 16th of September.

Recommendations on where to sit, eat before the game, eat after the game- restaurants that are good?

things to do in Houston?

How long are you going to be here? Houston has an extremely vast amount of things today

Are you all serious this thread started December 30 2007 ! This thread has 46 replies in almost 5 years and still open ? Is this the twilight zone maybe even a St. Louis Browns or Seattle Pilots thread ? Are you all using smoke signals , two Dixie Cup with string or using old Atari Comodore Dial up computers ? Does the Astros even have any Fans following them on this site ?
