I am new to this forum, but I am a huge Astros Fan!. This may have been discussed already, but.... I was wondering how fans thought of the Astros off-season. I believe that most might say that it has been disappointing. However, I am optimistic as usual. I know we don't have Fat Elvis or The WIz anymore, but I think we could be in for a pleasantly good year. I don't think we are playoff contenders, not with the Cardinals and the improved Brewers pitching. But, the infield has to be better with the additions of Barmes and Hall, especially Hall. Plus Happ and Norris' improvement is going to be intriguing.
Am I just having the typical preseason butterflies, or do we really have a decent chance of being better than last year?
