Richard Justice has us all feeling warm down our leg

Richard Justice says these are the good times:

Now they've got you jumping out of your chair and pumping your fist. OK, I might be stretching that a bit, but you know what I mean. You can't believe the transformation. You love this team. You love its youth and energy. You love its fight...

...I think the Astros are a reminder than attitude and youth and desire are really, really important. I think they're an endorsement of the environment Brad Mills and his staff have created...

... While we dishing out credit, let's not overlook GM Ed Wade, who traded for J.A. Happ and Jeff Keppinger, got Jeff Fulchino and Wilton Lopez off waivers and signed Brett Myers, Jason Michaels and others.

Meanwhile, he's rebuilding the minor league system. There are miles to go before the Astros are a finished production, but it would be impossible to predict the dramatic turn things would take. Pats on the back all around.


Agree? Disagree?

I think the youth movement is a great for the astros. I really thought I'd be upset when we traded Roy-O and Puma (2 years ago I would of). The reality is its worked out in both the short and (hopefully) the long run. Ultimately it had to happen.

Its pitching. Pitching, pitching and more pitching.

We have five starters who are currently doing their jobs, and very well.

Yeah thats totally true. We're 41-35 since june 1st. Thats amazing considering where we started and who we have lost. This team is alive and breathing again and it makes them fun to watch.
