Okay, I've had enough of how awesome and dynasty-like this new Houston Astros team is.
So I thought I'd revisit my own personal dislike of this team from back when they were in the NL.
If you're too young to remember that, well... the Astros, to me, for whatever reason, were the team I despised more than any other.
Even more than St. Louis.
In 2005, the Astros and the White Sox played in the World Series - the whole thing was just revolting, and I couldn't help but be reminded of that this year.
This is from 2012, their last year in the NL.
This one's from 2010 - I can't find them all.
Jeff Bagwell got a job as their batting coach.
Like I needed a reminder of the "Killer Bs".
Remember Jose Valverde? Could not stand that guy.
Carlos Lee. Cub Killer.
This is, I think, '07.
Right after a game where Lance Berkman ducked out of the way of a pitch, the ball ticked his bat which made a sound, and then he rolled around on the ground like he'd been hit in the head.
The ump gave him first base.
What a coward.
And this one was my first "I hate the Astros" page.
The Killer B's were still a thing, Jeff Kent had just come from the Giants, I HATED their stupid park with the train and the hill in center.
But all that said... oh MAN! How much would you love a Cubs/Astros World Series?
