I found better pics of the Astros new jerseys, but the link keeps getting ***'d out. They're decent. A big upgrade on the old ones.

I like the Orange hats.

But I'm still a sucker for the Navy and Gold from the 90s.

I loved those Navy and Golds, but I like these a lot.

Also, Jose Altuve is awesome. That is all.

Hamilton could become the highest paid player in baseball (yearly salary) but he may need to settle for a 3 or 4 year deal.

McGwire left to be closer to his family. Likely to be replaced with John Mabry.

Altuve is like my height, but when he stands with his teammates he just looks like someone you could pick up and hug



(shudder)


Still find it kinda entertaining that they chose the era my Goodwill hat came from. I was retro, now I'm not...

I still can't help but think I would be a better hitting coach than him. What does he teach, look what I did, do the exact opposite? The guy hit a ton of home runs because he was blessed with incredible size and strength. He's probably the most one dimensional hitter of all time. Yes, I am aware his shortcoming as a player are not necessarily going to translate to his ability to teach, but forgive me for not being a believer he can effectively communicate the importance of working the count and not swinging for a home run every pitch. I can't help but think the Dodgers would be better off bringing somebody in like Casey Blake to coach than a rich man's Russell Branyon.

Hamilton is going to be in for an unpleasant surprise when he realizes that none of the teams that would actually hand out that type of contract to a free agent (Yankees, Red Sox, Angels, Tigers, Dodgers, Phillies) are going to be in the market for him. My prediction is 6 years/110M. From who? I don't know. The Giants can afford him, and they do need power and they need a left fielder, but I'm almost sure that they are focusing their attention on next winter. Jacoby Ellsbury fits their ballpark and their team a lot better than Hamilton does. But of course, he could re-sign in Boston (though I doubt he will before at least hitting the open market).

I like it. He's served his time (all but 5 games). He admitted he was wrong to begin with and has pitched well in winter ball. He has earned a 2nd chance.

I can see Mariners chasing Hamilton. They need power in their lineup.

4 years / 110/120 mill would be my prediction.

Right. 'Twas a no-brainer to give him the Q.O.
