The Astros will continue to play like it's August 2010

Fox Sports Houston has an article up on whether or not the Astros can carry the success they enjoyed in the 2nd half of 2010 to the 1st half of 2011:

Chris Johnson:
"We're a group of guys who are going to work hard and come to play every day. That's how it happened. We just gelled. But we still have a lot to prove, and we can't wait to get into the games and continue to progress. That's the key. We want to build and improve on what we started. We're not banking on anything. So even in spring training, we're going to take a different approach, with more intensity, ready to play and ready to win."

"We were very loose and we didn't just throw the season away when things weren't going well. We just relaxed and concentrated on playing baseball. I see the same thing this year. Even though this is a different season, we still have the same energy that we had last year. You can feel it in the clubhouse."
