Houston Astros

Here we go again. Man, is this a dull off-season or what? Aside from the Yankees getting richer with the acquisition of Giancarlo Stanton, what is has really rocked your socks? SO, trying to make lemonade out of lemons… Let’s start off with a little shameless self-promotion: Paul Hagen offers this piece — “Looking back […]

A couple of months ago, I posted about some of the new books being published in 2018. Since then, Amazon has put up a few more titles. You’re welcome. In order of release, and sticking to the same restrictions as I have often stated… The Science of Baseball: Modeling Bat-Ball Collisions and the Flight of […]

By now most of you are familiar with my caveats, so I’ll just mention them briefly: The list includes only print editions of books; calendars (even though Amazon includes them on their lists), no audiobooks (as much as I enjoy them), and no kindle (because I’m old school). Second, since the rankings are updated every […]

Back on schedule… By now most of you are familiar with my caveats, so I’ll just mention them briefly: The list includes only print editions of books; calendars (even though Amazon includes them on their lists), no audiobooks (as much as I enjoy them), and no kindle (because I’m old school).

A day late and a dollar short… By now most of you are familiar with my caveats, so I’ll just mention them briefly: The list includes only print editions (no kindle or audio versions) because I’m old school. Second, since the rankings are updated every hour, these lists might not longer be 100 percent accurate […]

Though apparently, you don’t want to. From Houston CBS website: This past Sunday according to Nielson ratings, the Astros and Indians game drew a rating of 0.0 in the greater Houston area. I imagine this sets a record of some sort. Way to go, ‘Stros!

John Royal of the Houston Post recently asked in a column, “Why Aren’t There Any Books About the Astros?” He complains that there are lots of books about the Yankees, Red Sox, Cubs, etc. Yeah, well maybe if the Astros had the long history and tradion that those  teams have enjoyed, it would be different.

Spring ahead, fall back

March 10, 2012

As a public service reminder, remember to set your clocks ahead one hour before turning in to night. The Mets, and to a lesser extent the Astros, will be falling back as they celebrate their 50th anniversary. David Brooks, the social commentator, published this piece in yesterday’s New York Times on the seemingly impossible tasks […]

Take heart, Houston. You may have the worst team in the Majors this season, but you can relive past glorious and otherwise amuse yourselves by reading these Astros-related titles, posted by Ray Kerby and Darrell Pittman on AstrosDaily.com.

The New York Mets hosted Jewish Heritage Day on Aug. 24. So how appropriate was it that Astros’ catcher Brad Ausmus, one of the few Jewish Major Leaguers, hit the go-ahead homer in the 10th inning in what ended up a 6-4 victory? Now it’s the Astros’ turn. The club will host a “Welcome Israel […]
