    Last Thursday MLB.com wiped out the Astros message board as well as every other team’s message board at mlb.com. No advance notice. Just zapped them. I had been posting there for 11 years. Others had been posting much longer. Kind of classless on the part of mlb.

    I was wondering if any refugees from the Astros.com board, other than me, have joined this board in the last few days.

    I've pretty much only posted here on clutchfans but it's always nice to have more people around.

    Welcome, only a few requirements here:

    1) Leave your written statement on your opinion of Max Kellerman in that bin over there labeled "Tinman Psycho Obsession #29".
    2) Sign this waiver to participate in the section called "Debate and Discussion". Carefully read the "BobbytheTrailerboy" paragraph.
    3) Sign this waiver waiving your rights to complaints about racism against Asians and put it in that bin called "Clutchfans <3 Yuli".

    Now you're good to go!

    If the Astros have the best offense in the league and the best record in the league and Springer is among the best leadoff hitters in the game, I will relentlessly come after you if you suggest that they move Springer out of that leadoff spot.

    "Stupid Hinch" is a term of endearment

    Carlos Delgado should be the manger, is a popular opinion.

    I'm not a frequent poster. But checked the board daily.
    I have migrated as well.
    This board seems better as far usability.
    Let' see if those having feuds on the other board bring them over here.

    How about 1962? How about the time I sat in the 'good' seats at Colt Stadium and had all the fried chicken I could eat?

    espn classic has been constantly playing postseason games from back in your day. Orioles/Phillies right now, Al Michaels/Howard Cosell in the booth.

    ETA: I do not remember Joe Morgan playing for Philly.

    The games are in color, too.

    Quick question for the OP......does the word Cangrejero mean anything to you? I'll kindly await your response.

    I still firmly believe that if Delgado was the manager then the Stros would have swept every series in the post season.

    What happened to that guy? I am more of a reader than a poster (although I do go on posting binges occasionally), but I remember him here, then I didn't read for a short time and he is gone. He was very annoying. He would go off in the game threads about Hinch being terrible, then he would start hot take threads...but I wasn't thinking he would/could get the boot. Anyways just wondering.
