Found July 14, 2013 on Ride The Pine:
I just met you and this is crazy. Your first pitch sucked balls, like Baba Booey’s. Pop Star Carly Rae Jepsen threw out the honorary first pitch today in Tampa before the Rays 5-0 victory over the Houston Astros.  Jepsen’s pitch traveled about 4 feet before rolling towards a photographers camera resting on the ground. I wasn’t going to make fun of Jepsen until I found out that she is 27 years old.  Have you ever seen someone try to be 17 harder?

Houston Astros: Mid-Season Report Card

Team: Houston Astros Record: 33-61 (20.5 GB) Biggest Surprise of 1st Half: Pitching Staff- It’s not too often that the pitching staff is the biggest surprise on a team that is close to thirty games under .500, but the 2013 may be the exception. While no player on the staff has exceptional numbers, or an electric repertoire, the starters have held their own. According to Baseball...

Q&A: Tony Kemp, the Astros Next Altuve

When you’re a speedy 5-foot-6 second baseman with a line-drive stroke, Jose Altuve comps come with the territory. When you’re drafted by the Houston Astros, they are pretty much inevitable. The player in question is Tony Kemp. A fifth-round pick this year out of Vanderbilt, the 21-year-old Kemp is looking to forge his own identity in pro ball. He did so as a collegian. The Nashville...

Astros’ Chris Carter out with sore ankle

With the All-Star break approaching, many teams used Sunday as a day to rest those that might have otherwise played through ailments. It sounds like the Houston Astros were one such team, as the club decided to give first baseman Chris Carter an extra day to rest his sore ankle, according to Corey Long of MLB.com. Manager Bo Porter indicated that Carter suffered the...

2013 Fantasy Baseball, Jarred Cosart: Coming or Going?

It happens seemingly on a monthly basis these days. Some new pitcher gets called up and takes the world by storm. Perhaps it is the fact that pitching seems to be making a comeback after a couple of decades where hitters seemed to dominate. Perhaps, it is because teams can’t get a reliable scouting report on guys when they first come up. Who knows, maybe it is blind luck. Either...

Astros ink Jose Altuve to contract extension

Go ahead and cross Jose Altuve off of your possible trade target list, teams that need a second baseman: he's staying in Houston. The diminutive Altuve signed a four year contract extension with the Astros that will pay him $12.5 million over the life of the deal. The contract also contains a pair of club options for $6 million in 2018 and $6.5 million in 2019, meaning that the...

Houston Astros Send Rookie Back to Triple-A After Record Setting Debut

If there is talk around the Houston Astros and record-setting performances this season it is likely to be of the not-so-good sort. With the worst record in baseball and a payroll that is less than what many players get paid the team is, well--not that good. That doesn't mean that there are not some excellent ball players in the organization; just that it's harder to...

Astros and Jose Altuve agree to a four-year extension

The Houston Astros may be following the mold set by the Tampa Bay Rays.  It's a mold that many teams have adopted over the years.  Sign talented players early, buy out their arbitration and free agency years, and try to save some money in the process of getting a great player long-term.  That's what the Astros hope they did yesterday when they reached a four-year extension...

Chris Archer throws complete game, shuts out Astros

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Rookie Chris Archer pitched a five-hitter for his first complete game in the majors and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Houston Astros 5-0 Sunday. Archer (4-3) struck out eight and walked none in his 13th big league start, including nine this season. He made his debut last year. Desmond Jennings homered as the Rays won for the 14th time in 16 games. The...

Carly Rae Jepsen makes first pitch Hall of Shame (Video)

Your browser does not support iframes. Singer Carly Rae Jepsen threw out the first pitch prior to Sunday’s Tampa Bay Rays-Houston Astros game, and it did not go well. The Canadian vocalist uncorked a 15-footer that barely made it past the pitching mound. It looked more like a football spike than an attempt at a [...]

Astros give Altuve long term deal

The Houston Astros are in the midst of a major rebuilding project and have taken a lot of heat for how major it’s been. They’ve completely stripped the team down going with a majority of the roster under the age of 26 and eight guys who have one year or less experience. What I’d like to give them credit for is the move they pulled today. The team gave shortstop Jose Altuve...
