A history of the Rockets’ uniforms

A history of the Rockets’ uniforms

Erik Williams-USA TODAY Sports Can you guess which one is my favorite? The history of the Houston Rockets’ jerseys is a brief and somewhat controversial one. It’s laced with one of the most iconic looks of all time and a few questionable choices. Before we get started, shout out to the green and yellow (gold?) San Diego Rockets jerseys. We don’t claim you, nor should we want to, but you’re part of the history, and you are acknowledged. 1971-1972 The first iteration of the Rockets’ jerseys was very short-lived and rarely discussed. It was essentially the same...

Astros: Revisiting the 2010 amateur draft hits, misses

We take a look back at the Houston Astros picks in the 2010 MLB draft. When characterizing the Houston Astros 2010 draft, I wouldn’t call the results a home run, but I wouldn’t call them a strikeout either. I’d say it’s more of a flyout to center field. There were some decent picks here, but […] Astros: Revisiting the 2010 amateur draft hits, misses - Climbing Tals Hill - Climbing Tals Hill - A Houston Astros Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Is Yuli Gurriel a HoF-caliber Talent?

Photo by Michael Reaves/ Before people start going crazy, no, in no way am I advocating that Yuli will make the Hall of Fame nor be remotely close to ever achieving enshrinement. Yuli came to the big leagues at the age of 32 after an extended period of not playing baseball due to his journey away from his home country of Cuba. And now at age 35, it’s pretty hard to argue that he would not be at the back side of his career. But, here’s his stats in his age 35 season: .298/.343/.541 with 31 HR, 40 doubles, and 104 RBI An .844 OPS is nothing to scoff at, and he ended up ranking 8th...

This week I am moving on to the 2017 draft. This will be the last of the draft reviews since the next couple drafts haven’t had the time to make an impact.

Kevin Martin’s tenure with Rockets was a precursor to modern Moreyball

Photo by Bill Baptist/NBAE via Perfected by James Harden, Kevin Martin was the pioneer for the Houston Rockets and the success of Moreyball.
