Halos Heaven 22 hours ago

Angels Bats Go Silent In 4-0 Loss To The Astros

The throwback unis were amazing. CJ was ok. The offense was bad. Tonight's game against division rival Houston Astros was a taut pitchers duel for the first six innings, until one mistake by C.J. Wilson changed the complexity and sealed the Angel's doom. In the sixth inning, young gun George Springer took Wilson deep with a solo shot. A one run ball game might be something the Halos have overcome in other games, but there was none of that magic in Minute Maid tonight, as the Angels could only muster a handful of hits, and a situation or two in which they could have struck gold, but crapped...

Game #10: Oakland A's at Houston Astros

Baseball! The A’s are off to a fantastic start, even if the 5-4 record doesn’t show it. They have scored the most runs in Major League Baseball, and they have the lowest ERA at 2.14. They’re hitting .299/.358/.451 as a team, which essentially means the lineup as a whole is hitting like 2014 Starling Marte. In their first 9 games, they’ve shut out teams 4 times. This hasn’t happened since 1910. The A’s are really, really good. Meanwhile, The Astros are Astroing. For a team whose strength was supposed to be their offense, they’re off to a miserable start. They’ve scored...

Where to Start???

A’s 8, Astros 1 W:Kazmir (2-0)L:Feldman (0-2) MLB recap GameZone OMG this game was hard to watch. The first inning was brutal and I think it took Feldman off his game. I am not saying he isn’t to blame because he is. He needed to rise above the shitty defense of Villar. He needed to [...]

Game #8: Oakland Athletics at Houston Astros

For the first time this season, the A's take their show on the road. This is not a bad thing; the A's dropped two back-to-back heartbreakers to end the homestand and could probably use a change of scenery. Tonight, they continue the AL West competition as they face the Astros. Happy Monday and welcome back to work! Don't worry, baseball continues this week, although after the weekend's games, that might not be a great thing. It's hard to blow both Saturday and Sunday's games, but the A's did; it's equally hard--nay, almost impossible--to start the season with a 3-4 record despite scoring...

2015 AL West preview: Houston Astros aren't a joke anymore

After three straight years with at least 106 losses, the Houston Astros' rebuilding project finally started to bear fruit in 2014. With Jose Altuve, Chris Carter and George Springer leading the offense, and out-of-nowhere stars Dallas Keuchel and Collin McHugh anchoring the rotation, the Astros went from LOL to OK with a 70-92 record -- a 19-game improvement over the previous season. Having identified a core of quality players, they came out of hibernation this winter with a slew of moves for quality veterans. They signed free agent relievers Luke Gregerson and Pat Neshek to shore up a...

2015 team preview: Are the Houston Astros ready to contend?

The Astros are more talented than they were a year ago, but that won't make up enough ground to compete in a brutal AL West. "Houston, we have liftoff." This cheesiest of tag lines is an apt description of the Astros' 2014 season. While there were plenty of off-field issues -- more on those in a bit -- the team on the field won 70 games, a 19-win improvement over 2013's embarrassing 51-101 record. They had winning records in May and August, and even finished out of last place for the first time since 2010, when they were still in the National League. Jose Altuve morphed from a mandatory...

#12, the Houston Astros

The Houston Astros franchise, which joined the National League as an expansion franchise in 1962 under the name Houston Colt .45’s, have 11 no-hitters over the team’s history. That No. 12 ranking is pretty impressive, considering several franchises that have been around much longer haven’t reached that mark. In one of the oddest no-hitters in …
