An Astros Fan: A Perspective On The Astros

Dan Shedd@@dshedd41Contributor IMay 17, 2010

I've been an Astros fan for as long as I can remember. I remember the good ole days with the Killer B's rocking the NL Central and seeing my favorite ball player, Lance Berkman smack home runs left and right.  However, the Astros have been hard to root for even though they are my hometown team.

One of the things that bothers me the most is the lack of consistency. They(the team) get you all excited, then break your hearts (playoffs, 2005 World Series against the White Sox.)They just can't seem to get themselves over the hump. 

Another thing that bothers me is the lack of good players to help make the team start winning. We have Oswalt, Berkman, Lee and Pence, but who else? We need to get players who can help us win NOW AND IN THE FUTURE! Also the front office could use a makeover, get WINNERS in the front office. Get Coaches who were great championship contenders who know how to put the team in the winning position. 

i know this season is young and we have a new coach in Mills, but if he doesn't turn this ship on course for winning baseball, fans will lose faith in the team.

 

I haven't lost faith, but i will if we don't become a contender soon!
