What I want from the Astros this season


This is my first FanPost, so don't be too harsh. At this point in the season, the Houston Astros are on pace for more than 100 losses this season, a franchise record. Fan attendance has been at a record low as well, except for when the Boston Red Sox were in town. The MLB trade deadline is approaching, and several Astros players are rumored to be heading out of town. Here are my thoughts and suggestions.

I want to see the Astros, and their new owner Jim Crane, move some players and make smart decisions. For the past several years, the Astros have dealt away Berkman and Oswalt, but receiving little in return. J.A Happ is a solid 4 or 5 in the rotation, but nowhere near an equivalent to Roy O. The Astros organization felt that Brett Wallace was ready for his big shot, but that hasn't panned out fully. The Astros won't be able to finish anywhere but last place in the NL Central for 2011, but they can start to make smart decisions and add some building blocks to an organization that lacks depth and lacks smart decision makers
