Daily Craig: Astros reach another critical point in season
Craig Roberts returns to KPRC 2 with his 'Daily Craig' column.
(Yield and I mean it)
We are at the critical point of the Astros season for the sixth time. The surprising boys of summer want to be the surprising boys of autumn. I don't call it fall, because recent history indicates they have fallen.
Yes, sports fans and children of all ages, the Astros are 14 games over .500. They have not been 15 over the entire season. Every time (and it's been six if you are scoring at home, and we hope you are) they get to this point, they lose. The fellows are coming off a thrashing of the Mariners and the 16th win for Dallas the Bearded Warrior Keuchel.
I do want to point out something else regarding this 14 over .500 business. I was in a local watering hole awaiting the national anthem when I REALIZED the joint had the Yankees-Red Sox game on. What? We have a first place team and we're forced to watch two have not's in the East? Ok the Yanks are very much in it but who cares around here? The only story bigger in baseball than the Astros is whether Donald escorted the Mexican Little League team to the airport.
I got them to change the channel and then I left. That's the kind of guy I am. I remember the words of my friend Jeff Smulyan. (he once owned the Mariners) "There's a cheaper way to get a good seat at a ball game than shelling out millions to own the team."
This is Houston, so put the locals on your sets or I walk. The next thing you know we'll be complaining about which guys the Texans cut. I gotta see if Carlos Correa liked Corpus Christi.
