A new-look team for sure. With so many changes and new players, will the Stros be abe to contend? No October ball last year; what about October this year?

The Astros lost too much to be a player in the NL Central, and the Pirates are just flat out brutal.

Astros: I don't believe in Valverde. After Oswalt who do they have? Lineup is good, but can't produce the sufficient run support.

Baseball is still as American as our flag, our faith and apple pie.
