what would that be???  the Lastros

seriously I'm a huge fan; anybody think Jeff bagwell will ever make the Hall?
Biggio when it is his time?

I think Biggio will get in no problem.  I am not completely sold on Bagwell getting in.

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

I hope they do a name and uniform change when they make the switch to the AL.  The Astro's was a NL team, and once they make the move, they should start fresh with everything.

Yes the Colt 45's would be cool. it will never happen to non PC. maybe they could change the name back to the Buffaloes. I think the changing of the uniforms every couple of years is just so people buy more merchandise.

Heard the same thing...hope they don't change, but I will be ok with the Colts .45s... also heard they talking about running the club as a bussines and that everything is on the table...what they should do is get better players and people will come...start winning and people will come... :th_thicon_idea:

That is not their game plan right now.  They are going to develop the farm system first to get younger talent on the field.  If they can trade Wandy, Carlos and Brett for younger talent they will do that.  I realistically don't expect anything from them until they move to the AL, and it will probably be a couple years after that when they start winning.

As for name change,  don't do it.     Changing uniforms big deal that happens all the time.   Do like the fact he said he is lowering beer prices, allowing outside food and drinks to be brought in.

Roy Oswalt to Cards?

As a Card's fan, I am not sure why they want him.  He doesn't want to be in the bullpin and that's where he would likely end up.

New owner says he will not change the name.   No word on uniforms yet.   So we will still be the Astros .

Damn, let's petition him to revert to the Colt .45's (well we can sneak that dot in on .45 and hope he doesn't catch it)!

I like the old symbol, but I agree about the uniforms.  Horrible.
