Found August 26, 2012 on Holdout Sports:
Houston Astros pitcher Fernando Abad and catcher Jason Castro ran into each other while fielding a bunt during Saturday's game at Citi Field against the New York Mets. The play that pretty much sums up how bad the Astros season has been.


It happened in the bottom of the fourth inning with two outs and a Mets runner on third base. Abad and Castro were chasing down a bunt laid down the first base side by Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey. Abad grabbed the ball just as Castro was about to pick it up, resulting in Castro knocking over Abad. Abad's throw to first base was too late, resulting in an infield hit and an RBI for Dickey.

Needless to say, the Astros lost to the Mets 3-1.

The Houston Astros are open to bringing Roger Clemens back

The Houston Astros are putting themselves out there in regards to pitcher Roger Clemens. As the 50-year-old apparently ageless wonder prepares to throw down with the Sugar Land Skeeters on Saturday, the Astros are working on a contingency plan that plays with the notion of Clemens coming back to a MLB mound. Clemens’ fastball can still flirt with the high 80s and Houston’s amateur...

The 50-year-old Clemens is preparing for his second start with the Sugar Land Skeeters of the independent Atlantic League on Friday.

Astros and Mets, Kindred Spirits?

They were born the same year, 1962, as expansion teams, and in the Houston Astros’ final National League appearance against the Mets in New York, both teams are playing like expansion teams. Although linked by their entry, the Mets and Astros never developed an substantive rivalry in these 50 years. Playing in different divisions dulled the potential of a rivalry.  Both had long...

Pre-Game: Houston Astros (40-87) @ New York Mets (58-69)

This afternoon the Mets take on the Astros in the rubber game of their 3-game series.  The play in this series has been downright dreadful, but we’re baseball fans.  So we will watch…if you don’t have Cablevision.  Today’s 1:10 pm game will not be seen on Cablevision again, due to their spat with the hedge fund people involved with WPIX.  Oh well. But I was actually...

DeFrancesco would welcome Clemens

By MIKE FITZPATRICK AP Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) -- If the struggling Houston Astros want to bring back Roger Clemens, interim manager Tony DeFrancesco would welcome the 50-year-old pitcher into his inexperienced clubhouse. "I have nothing against Roger. He's a Hall of Fame pitcher and we can use maybe a guy with 300 wins, who knows?" DeFrancesco, 49, said Friday...
