    Hey Astros fans...how do you get into the Budweiser Brewhouse? Buy a specific ticket to it or buy any ticket and then show up?

    2017 Astros 101-61 (.623). The Indians were .630
    A 70% winning pct would be 113-49 or 114-48, depending on how you round it
    The best ever was the 1906 Cubs at 116-36 (.763)
    The best ever with the 162-game schedule was the 2001 Mariners at 116-46 (.716)

    The 2018 Astros are currently at .645 (20-11)

    Not Astros related and I've even seen this before, but its still good --

    Greg Maddux, on a batter's ability to determine pitch speed:

    "If a pitcher can change speeds, every hitter is helpless, limited by human vision..."

    "You just can’t do it..."

    "Except for that furking Tony Gwynn."

    Gwynn faced Maddux 107 times, more than any other pitcher during his career. He batted .415 and never struck out.

    They need more run support.

    After taking 2 of 3 from Indians, the Astros are 30-18 (.625)
    Which puts them on pace to match last year’s 101 wins
    And the bats have not really been there all season
    Once they do start hitting as a team, no telling where it might lead

    Dang -- it was kind of hard not to like this guy, eventhough he played for the opposition
