The Astros go to spring training with such an overall young and inexperienced team – you would think it would be difficult to come up with a few challenging trivia questions.
Well, you would be wrong…..
“Current” below refers to Astros in camp – 40 man roster plus non-roster-invitees.
#1 – Two current Astros are tied for having the most career home runs as Astros. Who are they?
#2 – Who has appeared in more major league games – Chad Qualls or the following 11 pitchers cumulatively – Scott Feldman, Jerome Williams, Dallas Keuchel, Lucas Harrell, Brad Peacock, Josh Fields, Brett Oberholtzer, Chia-Jen Lo, Kevin Chapman, Jarred Cosart and Josh Zeid. (Is Dan P being obvious or is this a sucker’s bet?)
#3 – Which current Astro has the most career RBI’s as an Astro?
#6 – Scott Feldman has the most career wins for any current pitcher (51). Which two pitchers are tied for the second most career wins (no matter what team)?
#7 – Which current pitcher has the most career wins as an Astro?
#8 – Between the 40 man roster and the non-roster invitees, the Astros brought 64 players to training camp this season. How many of them are 30 years old or older?
#9 – On the Astros 40 man roster – how many of the every day players have had birthday number 30?
#10 – The Astros 40 man roster includes 6 first round (or supplemental first round) picks – most of them made by other teams. How many can you name?
Hope you enjoyed this little quiz – it emphaiszes just how inexperienced the Astros are and how this team is practically starting from scratch. Chip will be posting the questions with the answers in the next day or two.
