In a nice little article in USA Today, Kristie Rieken talked about the Astros' 2010.
On the future:
"I'm excited about this ballclub and the prospects that we have. I think we gained a lot of experience going through the last almost 3 1/2 months. We came a long way, and the guys saw what it took to get where we needed to go. It was a process going through that."
Johnson said that once Oswalt and Berkman, as well as all the distracting trade talk, were gone the team could focus on improving.
"I think we were able to relax," he said. "Once that happened we knew it was our team, and we were ready to go. It's good because we can all learn together."
