John McGrath of the Bellingham (WA) Herald has a fun little column up this morning.
Some nuggets from said column about the Astros:
*(The Astros) figure to be as compliant as litter runts."
*"(The roster) has fewer recognizable faces than an art-house movie with subtitles."
*"But in 2013, they’re looking like a cross between a punching bag and a
tomato can. A punching can? A tomato bag? Something like that."
*If the Mariners don't go 12-7 against the Astros, there "will be some 'splainin to do." 15 out of 19 is "doable."
*"It’d be inaccurate to label Houston as a glorified Triple-A team,
because whatever adjective describes the 2013 Astros, “glorified” ain’t
in the mix. But it’d be just as inaccurate to label Houston as a
big-league team, because the Astros will be fortunate to win 50 games."
That's a whole bulletin board worth of material, right there.
