    Finally! Astros start this season by storming out of the gate with a sweep.

    Stupid New York weather...

    For those of us not paying close attention ...

    The Yankee series as originally M-W-Th and is now Tu-W-Th.

    Go Stros!

    So that's why no game thread yesterday.

    Castor knew it'd be rained out.

    The crew has powers !!!


    Excited for the season's start. Not only do I want wins, but nice stats would be good too. Keuchel maintains a low ERA and all our hitters with good OPS's. Not for Fantasy, for bragging rights and baseball history. Astros tying the 10+ HR record last season was good for franchise and MLB history. If only Lowrie hit one more :(

    It would be hard to do again, but the 9 guys in the opening day lineup plus White & Gattis figure to have good shots at hitting 10HR again. Reed could do it to depending on how much opportunity he gets. Stassi, Duffy, & Marisnick all have the pop to get there, but I don't think any of them will see the number of ABs it would take them to get there.

    Marwin earned it, and they clearly wanted lefty matchups.

    Lol actually I was really sick yesterday and left work. When I got home and was about to start the thread I saw the cancellation so I decided to wait.

    I'm wondering if Marwin is effectively a starter at this point. If he's playing 1B against RH and 3B against LH, he's going to play a lot.

    Oh boy, I can't wait to see how many here think the entire front office needs to be fired if the Astros lose today.
