    Title says it all.

    No urgency. Lack of hitting. Pitching is suspect.

    Bring up Tucker.

    Do something.

    I don't care if it is 7 games into the season.

    It's pretty common for good MLB teams to get off to slow starts and then bounce back really strong. If the Astros are still struggling after 25 games or so, then maybe it's time to get worried. But for now, chill. We have a damn good team.

    Let me get this straight.

    You are the same *** that came on this board before game 6 and 7 of the World Series and said the Astros would choke and lose to the Dodgers.

    You are also the same dude that defends the Texans to the end of time and makes an endless number of excuses for their failures.

    Rather than worrying about the Astros after one week, you should be asking why the Texans are mediocre.

    The bottom 3 in the lineup cant hit. Hitters 4 through 6 don’t raise eyebrows. We have crap catchers. We have question marks in the rotation. Our ace is not young and he already got tattooed in his 2nd start.

    We do have a good team but how good they are is going to be determined as the season unfolds. We shouldn’t take anything for granted. We are playing terribly but I do expect it to turn around.

    We know why the Texans are mediocre. Why are the Astros? This team is supposed to be the BEST IN BASEBALL.

    Baseball is a 162 game season, you simply don't understand it very well

    I suppose you also think the Twins and Mariners will play for the title this year, and the Red Sox and Yankees will fight for the first pick in next years draft?

    being 2-5 in MLB isn't even the equivalent of losing ONE NFL game. 1/16 of the MLB season is just over 10 games. That means being 2-5 in MLB is like being down a touchdown at the end of the 3rd quarter in the 1st game of the NFL season and throwing in the towel for the season.

    I understand the Astros' History. Astros need a decent April....to catapult for the rest of the season. When they struggle in April.....Almost never goes well (few exceptions).

    Strange start around the MLB. Stros, Sox, Yanks, Indians all with terrible starts. We will get going. With that being said, the A’s are very good. It won’t be a cakewalk

    You know it is serious when Breggy hasn't posted in his youtube in a week. Watching Mrs Correa is more enjoyable.
