Found October 05, 2012 on The Nosebleeds:

Man, the Astros just can’t do anything right, can they? The newest American League team is getting ready to unveil a new look complete with a new logo and uniforms next month, but they accidentally gave us a sneak preview thanks to a graphic (above) on the team’s website inviting fans to come to the launch party.

Playing with the brightness and exposure settings gives us a good idea of what the new threads may look like:

As you can see above, the new uniform will feature orange piping, ”ASTROS” appears across the front in navy and orange block lettering and also a player number on the lower side below the script. Here’s a closer look:

What about the hat, you ask? Well, it appears to be navy with an orange bill and features a logo similar to the classic 80s Astros cap logo shown inset on the graphic.

So it looks like the Astros will be the latest team to go with retro style unis, which definitely isn’t a bad thing. It seems like this is the new trend in baseball, the Blue Jays, Orioles, and Mets all did the same last winter. I certainly don’t hate it.

Carlos Corporan of the Astros Makes Worst Slide Ever

The catcher for the Houston Astros seemed to do "The Snake" as he tried to sneak into second base in a game against the Chicago Cubs. When you go in sliding head first they shouldn't need to apply first-aid to your head. His feet did almost make it in first as they were right behind his head.He looks like he got a nice shave at least.Here's one angle of the play...

Astros lose 100 again in last NL season

The Houston Astros' last season in the National League was a forgettable one. The Astros said goodbye to the senior circuit with a whimper, posting their second straight 100-loss season before moving to the American League West for 2013. Houston finished with the worst record in the majors for the second year and its 55-107 mark is the worst in franchise history, one game below...

The 107-Loss Astros Summed Up in a Single Photo

The Houston Astros endured the worst season in team history in 2012 by losing 107 games—just narrowly edging out last year's squad that lost only 106 contests.  In the team's final game as a National League franchise, catcher Carlos Corporán found himself on the wrong end of a botched hit-and-run in the 8th inning against the similarly anemic Chicago Cubs. ...

Astros catcher’s faceplant best example of symbolic schadenfreude ever (GIFs)

The woeful Houston Astros were wrapping up another horrible season on Wednesday when a play occurred that in its essence signified just how miserable things have become down in Texas.
