Any baseball fans in the house?

I usually go see a few games a season. My father is a baseball nut. He is older, though, and doesn't know his way around Houston. So, I take him to a couple of Astros games a year.

Admittedly, I have been bored by the 5th inning lately... Not nearly as exciting as hockey.

When I lived in North Arlington in 03/04, I was like 5 minutes away from the Rangers stadium. We saw a lot of Rangers games while living there. It was so easy to get out and be home in under 10 minutes... Not like the old days of the Astrodome - where you left before the game was over so you could get out :)

Huge card's fan here.  I am sad to see the astro's leave the NL b/c I will miss the card's coming down here a couple times a year.  Although after 2013 when they move to the AL, I can become a astro's fan.

Not sure who the astros are going to trade all the talent to now when we leave the NL.     Think the DH in our park can make for some great games.

Oh lord, I went to some many Astros games at the Dome that I can't make myself go to anymore baseball games.  I still watch a few games on TV and never miss the World Series.  For some reason watching baseball now relaxes me and makes me think about all the games I went to with my dad.  (Even though I would get bored early on as a kid and eventually hated going to the games).  Funny how something I disliked then I kinda miss now. 

And actually writing that out made me realize I am going to have to get some dang tickets to the dang games and take my old man and my kids.  Lol.

There ya go Jeb, create some new memories. Your kids will love it (nothing like a kids first big league ball game) and your dad will surely cherish the return to the days of seeing a game with his son (and maybe more so since it's on your dime now lol).

I rarely go to the games I will watch the playoffs and the world series if there is a team I have a little interest in.  I know it is not MLB but hopefully I will go see some of those skeeters games in sugarland.

I am going to make the trek down there this year and catch at least one game.

The Astros have a chance to do something no team has ever done in MLB history this year and next......win the World Series as a NL team one year and then as an AL team the next year!

While I don't think that's going to happen, I follow the Astros and always look forward to Baseball season. The new ownership seems to be intent on building the team from an in house foundation. They look to be stocking the minor league teams and getting some young talent. I just wish they could get rid of Carlos Lee. He's not much of an outfielder any more and is at best a mediocre 1st baseman. He might be OK as the DH when we're  forced into the American league.

Looking forward to the Skeeters minor league ball too. I used to a lot of Rancho Cucamonga Quake games when I lived in California. I also go to Round Rock Express games when I visit friends in Fredericksburg.

Just heard the Astros might have a name change starting in 2013 when they move to the AL.

Maybe they will go back to being called the Houston Colt .45's like they were originally.
