The Mets are streaking at the right time of the year and are now riding a 9-1/2 game lead in the NL East amid a seven-game win streak. Baseball...

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...

Long-suffering Astros finally back in contention

HOUSTON (AP) Here's something new: The Houston Astros finally have reason to look forward to the second half of the season. After several miserable years of rebuilding, losing and more losing, these Astros - powered by bearded ace Dallas Keuchel, diminutive second baseman Jose Altuve and rookie Carlos Correa - are just a half-game back in the American League West at the All-Star...

Three of J.J. Watt’s tweets filled with words of wisdom that will have you amped

There is no doubt about it, down in Houston J.J. Watt is the biggest superstar of any franchise that exists in that part of Texas. He’s more notable than James Harden, Dwight Howard and Jose Altuve. In fact, he’s probably the most profound Houston athlete since the “Killer B’s” of the Astros in Jeff Bagwell and Craig Biggio or the high-flying shows put on by Tracy McGrady...

Paul Goldschmidt's power/speed combo sets him apart

David Golebiewski of points out that Paul Goldschmidt is on pace for 40 home runs and 30 stolen bases -- a feat that's been accomplished by only one first baseman in baseball history: Houston's Jeff Bagwell did it twice during baseball's bigger-is-better era -- going 43/31 in 1997 and 42/30 in 1999. The stolen bases (15 going into Tuesday's play) are what makes Goldschmidt...

Houston Astros off to surprising start

For Houston Astros fans, it has been ten years since the club has made a playoff appearance. In 2005, the Astros made their last playoff appearance, a visit to the World Series. Unfortunately, the White Sox made quick work of the Stros, finishing them off in just four games. After losing the series, it was the end of a long celebrated era in Houston. The main core of Lance Berkman...

5 Fiercest Beards in Sports

The worst 2015 Baseball Hall of Fame ballots

This is a column I put together every year, and I relish it. Voting for the Baseball Hall of Fame generates a level of fervor and outrage that is foreign to that we see with other Halls of Fame across sports. Yet, each year, the outrage continues and, if anything, gets louder. This year, the BBWAA got it right. Four players – Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, John Smoltz, and Craig...
