Why I will not miss the Astros


Pirates fan here, just kinda checking out other blogs and figured I'd write a little article as I pondered the Astros. I have compiled a list of why I'm glad the Astros are leaving for the AL West.

  • Jim Crane - He fired Ed Wade. That right there is enough to convince me he will be semi-competent owner. I personally expect him to be even more than that.
  • Jeff Luhnow - The dude looks like he knows what he's doing. I think Astros fans will be pleased that he is their GM.
  • Jose Altuve - The dude is awesome. Who cares how tall he is. He will be a good ballplayer for many years
  • J.D. Martinez - I like him immensely as well. He nearly carried my dying NL-only fantasy baseball team to a crown in the last several weeks
  • George Springer - Very good draft pick. I'm very high on him.
  • The Rest of the Farm System - It's weird, I almost think I'm more passionate about advocating for the Astros farm system than the Pirates farm system. I'm a big fan of the Astros farm system, love its depth of interesting players, especially positional guys, and think its vastly underrated

So that basically sums it up. As the Pirates attempt to crawl from the cellar of the NL Central, I'm very glad we don't have to claw our way out against the Astros.
