    i hope no one is hitting the stros because of this. i'm ok on beaning someone in the thigh/ribs for in-game issues, but something like this seems like the wrong thing to bean guys over.

    Some say “knowing the pitches” was a bigger edge than steroids.
    But, the Astros road record in 2017 was better than their HOME record.
    In fact, the Astros were first or tied for the No. 1 rank in road HRs (123), road RBIs (472) and road BA (.284).
    How do you explain that?

    I remember his debut in July, 1963. I was a teenager selling concessions in the stands. Few will remember that Jimmy started at SS that day. He was not a good fielder, so it's good he became a star OF. RIP, Cannon.

    Do you remember when his wife stabbed him in the stomach? I was young but my memory is that this turned fans against him somewhat. We had a bad string of off the field stuff during this period, with this then Don Wilson and then César Cedeño's girlfriend. This was a crazy period in history all the way around.

    Yes, I remember. We weren't choirboys by any stretch of the imagination.

    Not to mention a manager who was supposedly a pretty open segregationist.
