I tend to watch MLB Network on a regular basis. It seems like any time analysts discuss a hitter and the homerun highlight reel runs while they are talking, the highlights show an Astros pitcher giving up a homerun. I totally understand that Astros pitchers gave up the most homeruns in the National League (188) in 2011 - second only to Baltimore (210) for the most in the League - but I think it is a little excessive. In these highlight reels, there are typically 3 at-bats showing HRs. I would say that I see an Astros pitcher appears in the highlight reel of 70% of the players discussed. Some of these highlights are for American League players, while other highlights seem to be stock footage from the 2010 season. Maybe I am just paranoid because Houston has been a punching bag for the rest of the league in recent years, but I wanted to see what you all thought.
This is only my observation. I was just wondering if anyone else has noticed this.
