Found April 04, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
If we're being honest with ourselves, Alex White's potential surgery will have little to no impact on the Houston Astros' season.  They are going to finish in last place in the American League West with or without White.  The potential surgery will have an impact on White, though.  He won't be available for a return to the mound until April of next year if he undergoes surgery now. As Brian T. Smith of the Houston Chronicle has reported, it seems more likely than not that White will undergo surgery.  He injured bios elbow late in spring and has not pitched since.  Smith says White is starting to accept the idea of Tommy John surgery. Alex White starting to accept idea of Tommy John surgery. Nothing set, though. Still being considered. — Brian T. Smith (@ChronAstros) April 3, 2013 White was slotted to be the Astros' number four starter this season.  Considering the make-up of their roster, that may not have been a great accomplishment.  However, he was going to be a starter with a chance to show what he could do all season.  Now the 24-year old will have to wait until the 2014 season. White made his Major League debut for the Cleveland Indians in 2011.  He bounced around via trade and pitched for both the Indians and the Rockies in 2011 and 2012.  He was eventually traded to the Astros.  In his career, White has a 5-13 record and a 6.08 ERA.

Astros fan has amazing mustache

If it were just this guy and his mustache sitting watching the game, wearing a t-shirt and jeans, it would still be epic. But add in the cowboy hat and old school Astros jersey, and this mustachioed gent goes from epic to 100% pure gold. The girls beside him seem unimpressed, but not knowing who they are, that may just be the way they look when they are in quiet awe of the mustache...

Fantasy Baseball Daily Fix: April 4th, 2013

“Here come the Astros burning with desire, here come the Astros, they’re breathing orange fire.” The Astros may be breathing orange fire again, but they sure as hell aren’t making a lot of contact these days. In three games, they have struck out 13 times, 15 times, and 15 times again. For the math impaired, that makes 43 times in the first three games alone. They have come...

The Curse of Paul Waner

Like most baseball fans, I was glued to my computer tonight watching Yu Darvish dominate the Astros in his quest for a perfect game. The Astros are the Astros, sure, but Darvish's curveball was the proverbial wiffle curve tonight and it made the Astros look ridiculous all night. Darvish strung together strikeout after strikeout and out after out, putting down 26 hitters in a...
