    Why is Houston so bad at fan attendance?

    Because the fans know that the Rangers regularly bend us over the table. You go with the hope of seeing a good game. Not much of that against the Rangers. Especially with this Fister pitching

    Nothing like starting the week off with a fisting from the Rangers.

    Because we purposely put a minor league team on the field for 3 straight seasons in addition to raising the price of tickets . Furthermore before the 3 straight years of absolute ass we were pretty bad for a couple of year before that . A rebuild of this magnitude has rarely been attempted. It takes more than one year of above .500 ball to bring the fans back , especially at increased ticket costs .

    Fair to say the Astros will be looking for starting pitching this off season.

    Add in the fact that even for those of us that wanted to watch, for a few years we couldn't unless we had comcrap for our TV provider, which wasn't an option for some of us during that time.

    And of course the guy complaining about it isn't there either

    Yep, probably take a shot on a reclamation project or two. Maybe one of them will hit big

    I love how this lineup makes Perez look like a Cy Young candidate. This is pathetic.

    With the FA list as baren as it is, I assume the asking price will be ungodly high for SPs. We have far more youthful prospects than (blue-chip) MLB-ready prospects, but I presume teams will want MLB-ready (or close to it) prospects in return for TOR SPs, so it will be curious to see how the offseason develops.

    Numerous reasons, but the main one is, "the city is cursed".... namely by sports.
