Was there ever a team this bad?
PositivePete- Dasshatriggeman is a bama plant on this site. His dugie houser underling always up votes him.
Didn't they bail from the NL Central for AAA?
yes.. yes they did
most pathetic team that I can remember in a long time
mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
It's bad, and it will be this way until they get some top tier talent going through their system. Hopefully they don't miss on anymore top draft picks in the next couple years or else that franchise may be simply disintegrated.
Of course they're going to be bad, but seriously, as an Astros fan, you can't but love what the new ownership has been doing.
Luhnow is on the verge of completely restocking the farm system and the Astros go from being last in prospects 2 years ago to having a Top 10 farm system this year.
They're doing it right, which is what I'll never say about what the former ownership did. I don't have a problem with sucking for a few years if that means progress and having decent seasons in a few more years.
Problem with that is, like the OP, you have fans that have no idea what's going on with the team and have no clue other than "OMG they're so bad." They have the "WIN NOW" mindset and that just doesn't work in MLB (for the most part.) They're rebuilding from the bottom up and I love the direction they're going. Just have to take a few lumps as they go.
The new owner and GM have a plan though. While they are awful they realize they are better off losing 100 games and drafting first than winning 75 or so and outside the top ten. The Pence trade brought back a few guys nearly ready and according to Keith Law on Espn they have the 4th best farm in baseball.

Yeah, but the Royals have had a plan and the top farm system for the last couple years. I'd love to see the Astros succeed, but they really need to have a good couple drafts.
