    It seems like there are TONS of Astros fans in every park we play in.

    But yeah, I stopped caring about what the national media thinks of us after this debacle back in 1994:

    That being said, I do like to read the 'power rankings' every week and the Astros have been #1 in every one I've seen (including ESPN) since the Greinke trade.

    They weren't #1 in the Atlantic power rankings (previously done by now known to be wife beater Jonah Keri) this week.
    Grant Brisbee did those power rankings and had the Dodgers 1, Astros 2, Yankees 3. Grant Brisbee used to be a national treasure, now he writes only for the Giants.

    ESPN is safe. The victims are still a minority in Houston.

    Houston is Texans town.

    People who tolerate a mediocre product also tolerate mediocre analysis.

    DISRESPECT ALERT FOR REAL FANS:

    Espn's headline article on the front page has a discussion about which of the 3 teams - Dodgers, Astros, Yankees - is the "team to beat" in October. While the Astros were spoken of favorably, picked to win even, a couple of times the writers had the gall to mention that the Dodgers are also a pretty good team and could in fact win the WS.

    Excuse me The Athletic, not the Atlantic. Trying to multi task. And will echo the sentiment above, the Athletic is awesome and well worth the money if you enjoy sports.
