Sometimes it is just really hard to write about baseball. The season is over. The season has brought us all any of us could ask for from a Houston Astros’ season. All the whining and complaining we all did before and during the season and the playoffs seems pretty silly at this point. The team we waited for all our lives arrived and delivered Houston’s first World Series championship on the most glorious silver platter against the media darlings times three.
So what to write about? The two biggest baseball stories have to do with the eventual landing spots for Giancarlo Stanton and for Shohie Ohtani and right now that landing spot will not be in our little hamlet by the Gulf.
At some point I will finish a post about the top 10 games of the year for the Astros, but that one is a ways away from ready. I could write about relievers we could possibly sign or trade for, but it is boring me even writing about writing about it.
We already hit on the top 30 prospects and already talked about possible holes in the team. We mulled on one of the biggest holes in the 2017 Astros’ armor… designated hitter. We threw out 10 random questions for all to chew on or to savor.
Last off-season we were in an interesting transition as Jeff Luhnow put a brake on the youth movement and one by one brought in the veterans who helped the young guys bring home the trophy.
This off-season we are not out trying to buy a brand new ring, but just getting the beautiful ring we own buffed up. Not nearly as intriguing, but potentially interesting. But it will be more interesting as we actually see who is brought in and how they get here.
The off-season stretches out ahead of us for a couple months until the Boys of Summer return to spring training in Florida…..
So, what types of articles would you like us to cover in this off-season? Can’t promise to hit them all, but it would sure help to have some input from our loyal readers.
