We all understand that the Astros are a bad team with bad components from the (Current) owner down to the towel guy, and I'm ok with that. I think we all should be as long as they stay bad in 2011. What we don't need; and I know this sounds insane, is another late season run to get to the middle of our division. It's time for the Astros organization and the fans to accept a last place season. Not just in the Central but in the MLB. This will benefit the organization as a whole. There's no shame in getting the #1 pick in the draft.
Having the first pick does not immediately translate to playoffs. But being able to stock up on top of the draft talent can help a farm system recover quicker than drafting in the middle of the pack each year.
Be bad, stay bad, play the kids from AAA, lose 100 in 2011..........but let's see what can be done to keep this from happening again any time soon.
