One thing I forgot about the Astros uniforms, were that they had their numbers on their pants. I love the look from hat to stir ups! I do feel Astros fans pain in having a team come in last place, or course my favorite team, the Rockies having 98-loses last year was no fun to watch. One of the greatest feelings a fan can have is to watch a team that EVERYONE has counted out win. Do I think the Astros in '13 will get to the playoffs? Of course not, but I hope they can make it as tough as possible for the Rangers and Angels. Growing up in St. Louis I had a somewhat dislike of the Astros, mostly because of their time in the same division as the Cardinals. I do wish them all the best moving into their new place in the American League and getting back on the winning track!
Just one more random thing to note about the Astros this year, their opening day 40-Man Roster will make less this year than A-Rod will make this year, and there is a chance that he may not even play till after the All-Star Break. Astros just need to draft well like the Royals and A's have, and in just a few years could be a playoff surprise!
