Houston Astros 2011 Season Preview
The Houston Astros are in the same category with the Mets, hardly trying this offseason. The only addition to speak of is Clint Barmes. The main thing that Houston is relying on is the hope that the 2nd half of the 2010 season wasn't a fluke when they finished 7 games over .500 in the second half. The Astros had a ton of good starts from their pitchers, equally that of the World Series champions San Francisco Giants getting good production from previous Phillies pitchers Brett Myers and JA Happ accompanied by picking up Nelso Figueroa. Hunter Pence led the league in all categories in 2010 and they are looking for him to have another good season. Look for Houston to do well with their rotation, but it will be hard for them to compete in a very competitive division.
Houston Astros history
The Houston Astros were established in 1962 as the Houston Colt .45s changing their name to the Houston Atros in 1965 after moving into the Astrodome. The name comes partly from their stadium and their connections with the Houston Astronaut program. The Astros are currently the oldest team remaining in the same city that have not won a World Series. They are the first MLB team in Texas, and today share this title with the Texas Rangers, and when MLB came to town, Houston was a Baseball town. Another game changer originating from the Astros came after grass refused to grow in the Astrodome so AstroTurf was created changing to game of baseball as we know it today.
It wasn't until 1969 that the Astros would finish over .500 and continued to get a taste of baseball success, along with their expansion partners the Mets who would go on to win the World Series the same year. Although the Astros would produce several good offensive ball clubs in the 70's, they were not able to contend with the Big Red Machine of the Cincinnati Reds. All this would change for the Astros once Nolan Ryan came to town being awarded the biggest contract the Astros had given. He would pitch 4 no hitters and strike out 383 batters in one season. The Astros would compete in the 1980 and 1986 NLCS losing both in thrilling fashion
They would retool and bring in perhaps one of the best Astros players in history besides Nolan Ryan when Jeff Bagwell was brought in along with Craig Biggio. A new look uniform along with their new stadium brought new success to the city of Houston. Adding stars Andy Pettitte, Rogers Clemens, Roy Oswalt along with Lance Berkman would win their first ever NL Pennant in 2005 beating the St. Louis Cardinals who had defeated them in the NLCS the year before. They would lose to the White Sox in 4 games by a combined 6 runs. Houston Astros Ticket holders are holding out hope that the Astros will capture that ellusive first World Series title, and the future looks bright for Texas baseball.
