Baseball Karma Is An Unpleasant Female Canine

The Kansas City Royals pitched my Stros inside all night. They were finishing out their last series at the Juice Box (and got their proverbial butts handed to them by my mighty mighty Stros—boo yeah!). Apparently, the process didn’t sit well with Royals starter Edinson Volquez.  He hit three of my Astros.  I thought that the ride in/up pitch on George Springer may–may have...

Spring(er) Break

George Springer will miss six weeks with a broken wrist. I find in these times of sadness it's best to turn to the ones you love, your family. But it's also important to not forget why you were sad either, so you don't lose perspective. So print out pictures of Springer's face and paste them to your wife, kids and dog's faces. See, aren't you glad you have family. It's that...

As my ex-girlfriend would say, let’s just get this over with. It really sucks that I’m not an Astros fan, because then I would have SO MUCH to talk about, like Carlos Correa and Lance McCullers and George Springer and a bunch of randoms.
