    Anything less than a sweep and we can likely call it a season.

    Ahhh, our Former Natural Rivals.

    In related news, our New Natural Rivals, the Arizona D-backs will now be our Rotating Natural Rivals, with San Diego and Colorado. Brilliant plan, MLB.

    Correa has one HR last 27 games. A month earlier, he had another one-homer 25-game stretch.

    Very good young player, but hopefully next season he makes additional strides.

    Yup still in Seattle. Gots my glove, Astros shirt and cap ready to go. And I'll be at the Texas-Cal game tomorrow. Good 2 days of sports.

    In addition, he really needs to change his approach at the plate.

    I just started popping tops in anticipation of my cousin's HS football game at 7.

    Without looking up stats, I'm guessing Correa has had the best first 2 seasons of any player in Astros history. Maybe with the exception of Berkman? He doesn't need to drastically do anything except continue to mature. He's 21, his approach will evolve and a lot of those early strikes are going to be destroyed.
