Astros Crawfish Boil: August 11, 2023

It’s JV Day!

MLB: World Series-Philadelphia Phillies at Houston Astros Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to the Friday Boil and Houston’s stretch run.

Houston’s got a pretty good start on their post-trade-deadline performance. They’re now 4-3 since it passed, and three home starts against the Angels may be just the ticket. Houston is 118-79 all time against Anaheim (or whatever they’re calling themselves this week). Only the Seattle Mariners have fared worse over their shared history with the Astros.
