Six straight losing series.

Brett Myers couldn't make it out of the fifth inning, and another Florida starting pitcher shut down the Astros offense for the third night in a row.

As the losses pile up, it's becoming more and more difficult to write about this team. The Astros now possess a 30-61 record, and it's very likely that this will go down as the worst team in franchise history. Yeah, it's been that bad.

Sure, I guess there are a few positives to take away from all of this losing. We are going to pick number one overall in next year's draft, Hunter Pence is entering his prime and having a great year, and we could acquire some nice prospects in the next several weeks.

The fact still remains that this team has been painful to watch all year, and unfortunately it might be a while until we start winning again. Maybe the new ownership change will be the sign of a new future with our Astros, or perhaps Ed Wade is going to be replaced soon.

Andrew Friedman, we'd love to have you resurrect this franchise in your hometown.
