If a pitcher has a foreign substance on his hand and no one is there to complain about it, does it still raise a stink?

Having finished with baseball’s worst record three straight years, the Astros have mastered the art of being bad. And it’s worked out for them; thanks to their early draft picks and some veteran-for-prospects trades, they now boast one of the game’s very best farm systems. That left the Astros with a decision to make entering…

This is great. After spending 11 years in the minors, catcher Cody Clark was called up by the Astros last month. But until last night, he was still looking for that elusive first MLB hit. He finally got it in the fifth inning, snapping an 0-for-25 hitless streak. Here’s a link to the video. Matt…

24-year-old rookie Brett Oberholtzer blanked the Mariners over nine innings this afternoon, becoming the first Astro to throw a complete game since Jordan Lyles on September 30 last year. Lyles was also the last to throw a shutout. Oberholtzer allowed just four hits and one walk while striking out five. Mariners starter Hisashi Iwakuma was…

Rockies 4, Marlins 3: The Rockies won this game but the Marlins took the 1993 Expansion Cup for this season, closing out the year with a 4-3 record against Colorado. What — you don’t keep track of the 1993 Expansion Cup? There’s a great ceremony at the end of the series each year in which either…

The Kansas City Royals did not hit a home run again on Tuesday — heck, they only managed two hits against the Cardinals, a hard double and soft single by Billy Butler — (update: they failed again on Wednesday) and so that means they have two home runs since May 15, both by 439-year-old Miguel…

We knew that the 5-11 Astros, with a -20 run differential, were bad — but not this bad. The 5-10 Indians, with a -21 run differential themselves, bashed Astros starter Phil Humber for eight runs while recording only one out in the first inning. Dallas Keuchel relieved Humber after ten batters and recorded the final…

Following in the Marlins’ footsteps, the Astros have decided to go to a six-man rotation for the remainder of the season.

Interim manager Tony DeFrancesco told Zachary…

Houston manager Brad Mills has decided to go with a six-man rotation through the All-Star break. The reason? Bud Norris is coming back and the Astros are so happy with the guy who has been replacing him — Dallas Keuchel — that they don’t want to send him back down. Eh, their call, but it’s not…

Astros left-hander Dallas Keuchel did a spectacular job in his major league debut last Sunday, limiting a dangerous Rangers lineup to one run in five innings. In his second major league appearance, the 24-year-old lefty from Tulsa, Oklahoma was even better. Keuchel, a seventh-round pick of the ‘Stros in 2009, recorded a complete game on…
