Astros Crawfish Potluck: August 24th, 2019

Start your weekend by telling us the best Astros links around

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Houston Astros Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Well what a difference a week makes. After a pretty terrible stretch of road games the Astros have come storming back to win 5 of their last 6. They’re in a position to win their second consecutive series if they can take one of the next two. The odds would seem to be there in favor here as they have only lost a single home series out of 20 played so far this season. It also helps that they’re continuing to set new franchise marks for best win total, and are currently on pace for another 100+ year. So nice.

But we’re not there yet, so in the meantime let’s get to the potluck. Let me know if there are any good stories out there and we’ll get them up for everyone to enjoy!

Mini-rant: Players Weekend unis are trash. Looks like a bunch of milkmen playing the Black Barts or something. Don’t see what was wrong with the little league style uniforms. They were much more thematic and allowed you to actually read the names on the back of the uniform, which is kind of the point of the weekend. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it MLB.


  1. You, the well traveled and informed TCB reader, find an Astros or MLB or general baseball article or news story on the interwebz.
