Astros follow 'vintage' José Altuve to Game 1 victory

LOS ANGELES -- It was a Saturday in mid-August, when José Altuve went into Dusty Baker’s office at Minute Maid Park and asked the manager to drop him in the batting order. “Guys don’t usually say, ‘put me down in the order,’" Baker said. “That’s a pride thing, especially if you’ve been hitting first, second or third most of your life. That was big for him to tell me that.”

Houston Astros: Surprising Cinderellas

Baseball. We’ve heard you loud and clear. In fact, the ringing in our ears never stops. The Astros are bad people. Very bad. They are nothing but cheaters. It’s almost all the ESPN talking-heads could squawk about for two days. We know. You hate the Astros. They are the worst human scum to ever don a baseball uniform.

Astros lackluster in loss to Diamondbacks

Life appears undetectable from the Astros, a team with sputtering superstars and few answers for this miserable month of baseball. Injuries are no longer an acceptable excuse.
