Posted on October 18, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The Houston Astros officially have their backs up against the wall in this year’s ALCS. Despite the Astros earning a split of the first two games, the Boston Red Sox have found their offensive groove with the series moving back to Houston. The Red Sox have scored […]

Posted on October 16, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The Boston Red Sox avoided disaster on Sunday night by doing just enough to beat the Houston Astros in Game 2 of the ALCS to even the series at one game apiece. However, the Astros should be satisfied with getting a split of the first two games […]

Posted on October 14, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The Houston Astros took the upper hand in the ALCS Saturday night in Boston, winning Game 1 7-2. In a battle of aces, Justin Verlander outlasted Chris Sale in a game that also saw Red Sox manager Alex Cora ejected for arguing balls and strikes. To be […]

Posted on October 12, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine In what some people are calling the real World Series, the Boston Red Sox will face the Houston Astros in the 2018 ALCS. This series will be a repeat of last year’s ALDS in which the Astros eliminated the Red Sox in four games on their way […]

Posted on October 5, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The Houston Astros will begin their quest to repeat as world champions when their ALDS series against the Cleveland Indians begins on Friday.

Posted on September 26, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine For the second straight season, the Houston Astros have on the AL West. The division was locked up early Wednesday morning when the Oakland Athletics lost to the Seattle Mariners.

Posted on July 30, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The Houston Astros have acquired their closer for the stretch run. Well, at least they hope they have. Monday afternoon, the Astros pulled off a major trade with the Toronto Blue Jays, acquiring closer Roberto Osuna. To get Osuna, the Astros have sent Toronto disgruntled closer Ken […]

Posted on July 11, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The Houston Astros may have the second-best record in baseball, but they just shook up their bullpen in a major way.

Posted on July 7, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine The Houston Astros don’t exactly need a lot of help right now. But they may be about to get some anyway.

Posted on June 29, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Sometimes it feels like the only thing that can stop the Houston Astros from scoring runs is an injury. Well, they have one. Thursday, the Astros announced all-star shortstop Carlos Correa is heading to the 10-day DL because of a sore back. The 23-year old last played […]

Posted on February 28, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine Due to Yulieski Gurriel being suspended during last year’s World Series, the Houston Astros knew they’d start the 2018 season without their first baseman.

Posted on February 16, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine After winning the 2017 World Series, the Houston Astros have nowhere to go but down. However, the Astros approached the offseason as if they wanted to reload for another championship run. On paper, the Astros may be even better in 2018 than they were in 2017. Can […]

Posted on February 10, 2018, by Bryan Zarpentine After an offseason of blockbuster trades that saw them trade away their best players, the Miami Marlins may not be done yet.
