Jose Altuve’s four-hit day paces Astros’ comeback win over Rangers

Jose Altuve should be the one to send the Astros into September with a four-hit game and a 3-2 win over the Rangers. The season’s final month will see Chris Carter chase 40 home runs and the Astros grasp for 70 wins, but neither mark would match the buzz of a batting title for Altuve, or his 211th hit of the year — the record-setter that should come with time to spare. September...

Dexter Fowler (OF, HOU) – Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deeper Leagues / AL-Only Leagues ANALYSIS: Dexter Fowler has had a wishy-washy season, to say the least.

Astros Fan Tops 50 Cent, Miss Texas For Year’s Worst First Pitch (Video)

Stop the fight. We have a winner. The 2014 Major League Baseball season has seen the full gamut of terrible, horrible, no good, very bad ceremonial first pitches, but the one tossed out Tuesday by one “lucky” Houston Astros fan takes the cake. Your browser does not support iframes. That was more of a slam dunk/volleyball spike, and its never a good sign when the ball hits the...

Astros star in terrible mall commercial of their own

The “intentionally terrible” mall commercial that has caught fire this week has inspired numerous parodies, and Houston Astros pitchers Dallas Keuchel and Collin McHugh starred in a remake of their own. Quickly, two thoughts. 1) Why are they advertising “back to baseball” when we’re near the end of August? 2) Is someone going to get wound up at a pitcher advertising pine...
