"Patience" is the key word for the Houston Astros and their fanbase right now. 

In a world where instant gratification rules the day, going through rebuilding phases is an oft-dreaded process. Nobody, and I mean nobody, wants the word "patience" to be the first word that comes to mind when thinking about their favorite team.

But it's all part of what almost every club goes through at some point. For the last three seasons, the Astros have lost 106 or more games, which is a record-setting feat—if you want to call it that.

But Houston is now into Year 4 of its rebuilding project, and things are certainly looking up. Astros fans: I can almost guarantee that your team will not lose 100 games this season. 

"Yeah, yeah, yeah" is probably how you're responding right now. "That's it?? We'll just avoid another 100-loss campaign?" 

What if I told you I expect the Astros to be a bit better than that? Would you believe me? 

I say to you, Houston fans: Continue to have patience with this lengthy and taxing reconstruction effort. For once, have some confidence in your team—it will finish this season better than you might think.

Here is your complete 2014 Astros season preview. We'll cover everything—a spring training recap, an updated injury report heading into the season, lineup, rotation and bullpen previews, and final projections for the club this season.
